Your thoughts on Subaru's?

I know that they have been regarded as grocery getters for a long time, but they are starting to get into the "fun factor" side of daily drivers. First was the WRX, followed by the really fun STi. Do you guys see them as ricers or what? Even if they are from Japan, they do a great job at kicking ass on the track.

Subarus are not ricers. Most are quick cars and I appreciate their AWD. Besides, I'm the f*cking king.

Subarus, just like any car, can be made into rice. Aside from the new STI and Tribeca, I like the looks. I could definetly see myself buying a used WRX somewhere down the road.

I own a 05' STi and I couldn't be happier. Any other subaru owners?

We're a pretty loyal bunch. I respect all makes, but I chose subaru for the car, not the name.

Just recently becoming exciting? Subaru has been into the sports car area for a bit longer than you think. The Subaru SVX, though heavy, was a truly unique and interesting car. And not half boring to drive, either.

I thought I would throw in the fact that they are made in japan, for all the muscle heads to know that japanese cars are kind of where it's at currently.

Let me just be the first one to go on record as calling bullsh*t. From this persons very first post he has made it a point to tell us he owns a Subaru several times AND that Daddy owns a "Subaru shop".

That is the work of someone who really, REALLY wants you to believe him. My guess is that he's a 14 year old who has never even ridden in a Subie.

Final thought in response to this trash.

Yeah, they're made in Japan... Except for the ones made in Lafayette, Indiana.

there's only one way to settle this. Have someone take a pic of you next to your Scoobie while you flip off the camera and hold a sign that says "Bitch I live in a trash can"........Till, then, we'll go on not believing you
