Hello everyone. I just joined this group because I'm considering buying my first Subaru. I've owned a big variety of cars over the years but never a Subby. The family man in me wants to get a Legacy, but the kid in me wants an Impreza. Currently I have a Mini Cooper Cabrio, Ram 1500 4x4 and a Saturn Aura XR. I'm looking to replace the Aura. It is a fun car to drive with tons of power from the high output engine, but it is built like garbage. I was impressed with the apparent age of the cars that people are asking questions about, and impressed that the problems really don't seem to be major ones. I never thought of Subarus as being so reliable and durable. Am I mis-interpreting things here? I think my biggest concern is the CVT transmissions. I'd like a manual, but my wife only drives autos. I don't see many complaints about the Sub CVT's. Are they durable?? Anyway, Hello to everyone. Thanks in advance for any answers I get.
