Just bumping this up because, darn it, I just like this one.

Love Subies. I am on my sixth one currently.

I really want to love Subaru's. Well, I love the looks and performance and the aura but I'm struggling to get over my fears of the Grassroots priced ones.

Coming from a GMT 800, it's hard for me to feel comfortable with the issues I've read about i.e.: head gaskets.

If fact, (not sure if this is a strange notion) I'm searching for a brand that I can not only drive but collect lots of interchangeable parts and kind of get into the "scene".

I mean, I LOVE driving by a house where you can see that they're big fans of one brand or another: a driver, a parts car, a garage full of seats, rims, tires, body panels.

Seems like Subaru and Jeep are like that. The ol' Lego phenomenon!

^ Headgasket issues haven't been a thing since the 2.2 era. You're talking 20 years ago.

Thanks for that! I'll have to look into prices because the 2.2 era is what I was referring to being Grassroots priced but maybe in need to revisit that theory.
