Based on what I've seen of their cars I sought this Outback out when I saw it posted by the dealership and my family needed a new car. Bought it used with 144K on it. Body was in top condition, it had a clean history and only some work has had to be done on the engine at my cost (had to replace the spark plugs). Accelerates well for a wagon and the room inside is great for a family with a growing child.
Story
Compared to anything I've driven in the snow this car handles extremely well without chains. Had a ton of fun getting to the movies during the snow we had just months after purchasing it.
Pros
You've probably seen a fair amount of older Subaru's being driven. Ask one of their drivers how many miles they've got on their car. I'll bet you that figure is six digits in length and counting.
Cons
None.

My Subaru Outback is the best car I have ever owned. For a 2002 with 150,000 miles it doesn't miss a lick. Ample space for cargo, luggage, etc. Great road trip vehicle, handles the road at high speeds very well and comfort is included. With the all wheel drive feature going off road isn't a problem either and in the winter there is no use for chains. The Subaru Outback is an outdoor enthusiast best friend. The luggage rack offers options for transporting your bicycle, kayak, skis/snowboard, etc. I can honestly say they're really isn't anything that I do not like about this car. It is an all around go getter and, with 24mpg hwy and 20mpg city, it leaves some money in your pocket for those extra road trips.
