Certainly there too. Anywhere you find snow, you find Subies.

From the Denver forum:

Subaru Snobbery?
Advice on Buying a Subaru
We're here, have questions about buying a vehicle.
Young kids, small town to suburb, good schools. Where to move?

Just a sampling!

Yep, there too (used to live there).

They are excellent, durable, cars. A good buy for anyone who has to drive on snowy or gravel roads with any regularity.

Makes me mad! I'd love a Subaru, but I don't want such a huge car. Or such a huge car with such a huge price tag. Remember when Subaraus were "Inexpensive. And built to stay that way"?

Yeah, I replaced my poor wrecked 1997 Legacy Outback (already a big car) with a 2009 Forester, and the Forester is only slightly smaller... the new Outback is absolutely enormous. The Impreza is still pretty small by US standards, but it's not even close to a "city car".

Minneapolis is filled with Subarus. I have heard the stereotype that the subaru outback (forester, too) was a "lesbian car" -- no idea if there's any truth to that or not, but Minneapolis sure has a lot of lesbians and a lot of subarus.

@ I saw that on the automobile forum, was a bit puzzled. I can think of other stereotypes for it, though.
