The level of rust not only depends on where you live but also on how often you get your underbody wash especially after driving on the salt sprayed roads. I know a lot of people who do a weekly wash especially in the winters to prevent salt buildup on the underbody of the car. It is very difficult to get it out once the salt sticks.
Rust has nothing to do with a Subaru though I have seen more Hondas and Toyotas with rust in New England.
I HAVE A GREAT CAR my 1990 subaru legacy has been in our family for
over 16 years and still going, and now I finaly have the chance to restore it,
I but the problem is finding the front finders (due to snow and salt damage)
nothern car, now living in the south the cars are so good the bodys rust before the engine goes,true, I have had 5 subys in my life 2 belong to father
one repos., 2 in driveway now, so I think I know subys, and will not go back
to another brand.
Lived in Japan, bought a 95 WRX, tuned it out, put it on a properly set-up (note: HKS Dyno PAC) and churned out 525 ponies.
Do I love Suby, yes will I continue to own Subies yes. As far as the seats go stay away from the WRX or STi if your looking for a lazy boy because these seats were not designed for that.
I also lived in Misawa, Japan where it snows for about 6 months and the car was an absolute blast. Rear wheel cars just don't have and will never have that lvl of handling when adverse weather comes about. Also the car was dependable, NEVER broke down and I do mean NEVER.
Definately not a car for everyone but Subies are dependable and reliable cars, but like anything they can break from something stupid such as the DRIVER!!!
I have a friend who bought a new 2006 Subaru Baja (half car/half truck) and she loved it other than a constant ticking sound from the engine. She took it to the dealership at least three times for the ticking and they always said it was normal. It sounded like it was low on oil, or maybe a valve was sticking or something. She ended up trading it before the warranty ran out.
IF you all want a lot of more info on Subies, go to NASIOC.com (North American Subaru Impreza Owners Club). LOTS and LOTS of info. Some of the best techs on Subaru post there.
