keep up the timing belt maintenance. Understand the dynamics of subaru AWD. and anything that seems different compared to other cars, its just a subaru thing, a class of its own by design.

Congrats on the purchase. Just like everyone said take care of it and it will take care of you. This is basic info about them even on here. Read and understand this is different from your run of the mill front or rear wheel driven car.
