I'm new to subaru . . . Came from VW, Honda, and currently still with toyota and chrysler.I'm thinking of getting one or the other, used, low mileage. I have an '05, so I'd especially like to know if you went from one of the older models to one of these if you're glad or sorry you did.
Exactly why I bought one...it's getting so you have to buy a base model on some vehicles to get a manual at all...I made sure I let Subaru know how much of an influence being able to get AWD with a manual was in my purchase decision...Absolutely love my 2013 MT Premium 2.5. Fun to drive, no issues whatsoever...great car. Love the 2.5...less maintenance than Turbo, delivers plenty of power for me, bulletproof.
Not sure if you're looking for a stick, but I LOVE the fact that I could get a manual with the sunroof (can't get that combo in 2014)
Go for it!
