I agree totally agree. You cant go wrong with Japanese mechanics and durability. I had an 80's subie wagon in high school, and crashed it a few times and spun out on the freeway in a rain storm and drove it through a fence, and I drove away from everything each time. I put over 200k on a few toyotas, and now from Subie we get 300hp/tq and AWD out of the box for roughly $30k , seems like a no brainer to me. I will always have a special interest and love for american muscle, but it gets old. I like snow and dirt and mountain roads. To each there own. Cheers!
