If maintained, Subarus are great cars. Other than some early 2.5 liter engines with head gasket problems, they are very reliable.
Check the sticker on the underside of the hood for the engine size. The 2.2 L engines are excellent. Yours may be an 1.8 L.
The engines suffer from some minor oil seepage which is best cured during a timing belt change.
Parts can be expensive but there are many on line sources which help in this regard. But since they seldom break down, the overall cost is much lower than US made cars, in my opinion.
The All Wheel Drive is great if you need it but there is a small penalty on the Miles Per Gallon. The handling is wonderful in snow, rain, wind, etc.
Many members own multiple Subies (I have 3) which says a lot.
Check out NASIOC.com which is mostly for Imprezas.

Okay, I am not an English teacher so I cant do the right phonetic thing, but that's my impression of the car's name!
