Why do you love your Sube
Posted 29 January 2004 - 09:16 PM
I told the guy that my Brat is super reliable and on snowy roads I on a regular basis pass my share of Chevy,Ford,Dodge,totoya 4x4s without worry of my personal safety.I also told this guy that I've never had starting problems with my Subes. My N/A carbed 84 wagon started with no problems at -18 ambient air temp. I've never had a problem with my Turbo Brat starting either it was -12 yesterday morning and she whirred right over. So why do you all love em. Just curious. USMB for life

OOPS! wrong lifetime!
I like a car that can go over mountain passes without having to chain up, with room for me, my wife, our luggage and 2 black labs.

I am on my 4th EA82 Wagon.. total invesment so far(cars and all the parts I havbought) less than $1000:D

The market value is abysmal. That's a good thing, you can get one cheaply.
Still, I want a Legacy for my next ride.

Then there is the turbo wagon............... still under $1000. now with WRX intercooler and BOV cool stereo MBC.

Starts on frigid <-32 degrees the other night brrrr!> mornings, carries all my tools (well, MOST ) decent mileage, easy to work on (even though the aftermarket SUCKS!)...
And, the BEST is the look on loser neighbours faces when they intentionally plow me into my driveway with a three foot high embankment, and I just drove over/through it on the way to work Wednesday morning.
That, and hauling a stuck fullsize Chev van out of a ditch the other night was cool too!
Sure, she's let me down a coupla times, but in retrospect, they were no biggie, coulda been worse.
I don't think i've ever owned a more reliable machine <although my 84 Grand Prix comes a close second R.I.P.>
Long live the Mighty Subie!

I couldn't agree with this more. I've worked on a few other makes, and no matter what, my Scoobs are SOOO much easier to work on!
Plus, neither one has ever left me anywhere, for any reason. Not even a dead battery or flat tire. They've done some weird things while I have been driving them, but they always got me there!
Then the fact that they are saturated with personality to an extent that I've never seen in any other type of car before. I named both my cars for a reason!

Just grew on me like a fungus.
Sure, she's got her days, but what other car can still carry your a$$ where/when ever you need to go no matter what the conditions of her or the elements outside.
Just can't help loving them.

I've been so impressed with my Subies... I swear by them. My hot rod Mopars are now my secondary cars. :-p

#3 takes me everywhere I went with my lifted S-15 pickup

2. None of mine have EVER let me down. They always get me home from the stupid places I take them, even if they have problems that would be considered fatal in most cases. Sure, I've gotten stuck and stuff, but that was because of my stupidity, and most times I made it a heck of a lot farther than most other vehicles would.
3. They are sinfully fun in snow. I live in alaska. Need I say more?
4. Even though compared to most soobs mine has been expensive, it's still way cheaper than anything else that could come close to doing all the stuff that it does.
There are sooooo many more reasons, I just don't have time...

considering all the different makes and models of cars I have owned over the years, my Soob is by far the most dependable and versatile car I have ever owned. the one and only time she actually left me on the side of the road could be considered my fault for not changing the timing belts when I first got her, like it was recommended to me to do! guaranteed that will NEVER happen again!
My only complaint with this car is that it isnt the most comfortable on long road trips....that seat just gets sooo uncomfortable after so many miles, no adjustment makes much difference...but I can live with it, cause I dont make that many long road trips! (after driving a behemoth of a lincoln that felt like it was floating - it is a VERY noticable difference)
But I do love my Brumhilda!

Also, my car was going to be driven to the junkyard! All CV boots busted, wheel bearings toast, rusted out, ragged at the farm until CV boots filled with grass and corn parts, and did I mention the rust? Buuuuuut, I've had the car for almost three years now with a tune up and necessary repairs mentioned she's driven through snow like a haus, passed emissions without emissions controls, gotten me to work for a year and a half, and never failed to start!! Despite all the ragging I do to it....oh and I don't have to worry about door dings and can park where ever I want!
Plus the looks you get from other motorists as my rusted out little blue wagon races by them!

I initially purchased my Subaru because it did everything I wanted a car to do.
It looked good.
It got good mileage.
It had 4WD.
It was bigger than my 78 Civic.
Since that time and for the last 21 years it has,
Never really had to fix anything, (one junkyard part on my car)
Still runs as strong as it ever did,
In it's next life as a SubaruHummer, I expect it to continue on like it has in the past.
This is why I purchased another Subaru to replace it:D
82 Hatch, almost wired..........
01 Forester, bent but not broken!
