I traded in a 2000 Honda Accord last month for a WRX, 25 miles short of 1000 now, and so far I do not regret the transaction at all (and that was one of my key concerns "will I regret this?")... save for a few minor issues (what perfect car exists that has NO minor issues?) this car feels as solidly and smoothly built as my honda (and paint quality is no worse than honda's, unless you hate honda in which case that's not much of a comparison plus it drives a heck of a lot better too! Ah, there's nothing like soaking wet I-95 with AWD!
If you want to learn about all potential issues, follow these boards, follow the i-club or other subaru-oriented boards, and you will see all the dirty laundry and then some that possibly exists anywhere with Subarus. I am not seeing complaints of anywhere near a frequency (especially not related to obvious driver abuse) that would concern me about my car's quality.

if the founder of this discussion would explain a little more fully what model(s) Subaru these three unhappy owners were talking about, and what exactly was the nature of their "major mechanical problems."
So far in over 100 posts, we've only seen mention of a few minor problems like hesitation and stalling, nothing about major failures on important components like drivetrain and engine.

Okay, since nobody's getting the point and everyone only wants to argue, let's just wrap this up.
Burd, if you would like to start the topic up again, please feel free to do so and we'll try to keep the topic on a fact-finding basis and/or not allow certain posters to partcipate in that particular topic.
