I'm pleased to see so many others enjoying the scoobie as I do. I think it's almost the perfect blend of sport, ability, agility, cargo carrying, and the go anywhere characteristics subaru's are known for. And all of this with major fuel savings, reliability and a touch of class for a reasonable initial costs. My trucks haul more, my sports cars are better performers, and my Tahoe can haul more people. But none of those can do all of the other things as well. I stepped out of a very nice 3/4 ton Ram into this for my daily driver. I think it is my favorite vehicle I've owned thus far.
All very true. The car is also free of pretense or gimmicks. No two-tiered instrument panel, faux wood grain, excessive interior chrome or integrated social networking. Looking back on the car 10 or 15 years from now, it won't be a constant reminder of the bad ideas and fads of the early 20-teens.
