What do you call a guy who posts one severely negative comment and then vanishes?

My husband had a 2004 subaru forester xs, now for sale w/ 131k miles on it, and the only reason we are selling is because a friend of the family wanted to buy a brand new car and so she was selling her 2007 forester w/ 40k miles. Lost a few of the "extra" features, but gained a newer less mileage car.
My husband is in love with the foresters, we have had no mechanical problem in over 3 years, only had to replace brake pads, we did replace front rotors although they probably would have been okay, and of course tires.
I traded my old Santa Fe in for a 2008 CR-V in February, with only 12k miles on it and I love my CR-V but its not the same in the snow, its more comfortable than the subaru, but they each have their pros and cons.

It just depends (sometimes on the luck of the draw.)
I have 3 jeeps. NEVER had any trouble with them and they all have over 200k on them. 91 Cherokee, 2000 GC 98 Wranger.
I have had 5 Subarus. Never a problem.
I have had 1 Honda, 1988 Van-O-Wagon. Biggest POS I have ever had.
And Hondas are good cars. However, the CRV 4x4 system is very poor.
Hondas are great cars. I just got a very poor example of their work.
I have 3 Honda MC and they are all Fantastic. No porblems at all.
So it really is just the luck of the draw sometimes.
