Mike Says The reason I bought this car is that I’ve been a fan of Subaru as far back as I can remember. It sounds kind of corny, but this is my dream car. I’ve always wanted a wagon that can make gobs of power, but I can still load up with shit from Home Depot and whoop up on a Mustang on my ride home. I was a Honda guy for 10+ years, and when I bought this car it really made me wonder why I was in a Honda for as long as I was — I’m now a Subaru guy for life!
We Say Mike is on to something here with the well-rounded aspects of his wagon. It must be nice to be able to run up to the mountain for a day of skiing and then toast a couple of domestics on the drive home. And even though certain Honda guys in our office might say that Subaru wagons are for girls who like girls, we still like Mike’s choices.
