HI .
I work construction and Still am a truck guy . But due to driving over 500 miles week at times . Was time to rethink things . I still needed 4wd/AWD and Some MPG .

Been around Subaru's for years (Like since 1985 LOL ) Never owned one .

My friend had Subaru's all his life his father is service manager for local Subaru garage. I found a 02 Outback in need of fender and bumper (deer damage ) That had sat for almost a year. Its fixed and on road . I give credit to refinement of car . Ride fine runs good.Lots of room in back of wagon for tools. MPG could be better than the 24MPG I get but its 10 better than truck .

I look forward to responses to any questions of issues I may have thank you
