Subaru Owner Car Reviews

2017 Subaru Impreza 2.0i (AWD) review

I previously owned a 2013 Subaru BRZ with manual transmission. I owned it for the last three years and loved it. I was quite happy about everything with the stock model and didn't make any modifications. Now, the time has come, and I had to replace my car with something practical for my baby. I sold my BRZ for $26,000 and didn't want to spend extra money to buy a new car...

2005 Subaru Liberty 2.5i Safety review

Ah, the Liberty. In my mind, the forgotten hero of the Subaru range. At least until 2009, when this fantastic fourth generation was retired in favour of the hideous land-yacht that is the fifth generation. Anyway, back to the car in question. I love this car. I really, really do...

2004 Subaru Forester X review

I bought this car because I lost my car in my divorce settlement and I couldn't fit the kids on a bicycle. It's a great little car with lots of advantages. It has a boot, for example, which means I don't need to strap my shopping bags to the roof. It also has seats, which means I don't need to strap my kids to the roof...

2006 Subaru Impreza WRX (AWD) review

If your the kinda guy who's always late to your great-grandparents' funeral (more than likely caused by your significant other) attempting to sneak in under the radar, unfortunately the 2006 Hawkeye WRX isn't for you, sorry. No this car is defiantly not a sleeper, that's for sure...

2016 Subaru Outback 2.5i Premium review

We bought our Outback at end of 2015, and our first main concern was seat height as we are both elderly. We previously owned a Statesman and also a small Mazda 2 hatch and while they were good for a long time, we found them hard to get in and out of. The Subaru Outback completely ticks that box as we find it exactly the right height...

2016 Subaru XV 2.0i-S review

  The Subaru XV is just one of many offerings in the small SUV under-$40k segment. However, it is often overlooked for the more fancied, at least per sales figures, Mitsubishi ASX, Mazda CX-3, Honda HR-V and the absurdly named Nissan Qashqai. This is a mistake. I’ve just ticked over 15,000kms in my 2016 Subaru XV 2.0I-S...

2001 Subaru Liberty Heritage (AWD) Review

Early in the year, it became apparent that we needed a 3rd car within our family, as we had four drivers that would share between two cars, which became quite a hassle as we'd all need to figure out when and who could use a car, and next year we'll be having a 5th driver come into play...

2003 Subaru Forester XS Luxury Review

Our 2003 Forester was purchased brand new as a downsizing option from a Ford Falcon - we wanted something comfortable, safe and reliable with a bit of flexibility when it comes to load and cabin space. We decided on the top trim XS Luxury model as it came with leather, sunroof and side impact airbags - when we first got the car we did experience some quality niggles that in all honesty were expected due to the fact that this iteration of Forester had only just started to be produced...

2012 Subaru Liberty EXIGA Premium Review

This car was bought for utility not pleasure. At $33,000 it was a heavily discounted dealer demo. It has averaged 10L/100km. The seats are comfortable and can be configured to carry many different load types. For example 3 kids in the back plus surfboards. How split fold the second seat for two kids to sit in and put the third kid in the third row behind them...

2006 Subaru Forester XS Review

The 2006 MY07 Subaru Forester is the second Forester in our family, with the previous one being a 1998 model. I love the smoothness of the 2.5L naturally aspirated Boxer 4-cylinder, which produces 121kW (162 hp) with the 5-speed manual transmission. The XS includes a 6-disc CD changer with factory subwoofer on the left hand side in the boot...

2016 Subaru WRX STI Review

I bought the base WRX STI MY17 two weeks ago and have one word to sum it up - Exhilarating!! After test driving both the standard WRX and the STI, I felt that the regular WRX was much easier to drive and felt more like a better daily driver - a great car and a brilliant performance bargain for the price. However, after driving the STI, I felt absolutely engaged on the road...
