Are Subarus the best cars money can buy??? From Fortune Magazine
Link to the story in the December 3, 2012 issues of Fortune magzine.

Looks like we all made a good 2012 Legacy is my 3rd Subaru (also had a 87 Turbo RX & 2000 Outback)

Very good read, thanks for the post. I also have 3 Subarus after just purchasing an 05 GT. I had been hesitant on buying a newer Subaru because I expected alot. My first Legacy, a 90 LS has better interior than some cars today. The dash was padded in a way that wasn't like vinyl over plastic and not like a pillow just right and the whole car had vinyl. So when I picked up the new car that was the first think I checked and as I held my breath, closed my eyes and put my finger on the dash and pressed down, I breathed a sigh of relief. It did have vinyl, and it was the correct combination of padding that I had been accustomed to. Sat in a '11 WRX and was baffled at the how much plastic there was and it was a Limited. But it pays to play when you want that kind of performance. I think I'll stick with the Legacy.

I'm glad arrogance and/or hubris was met with force. Learning the hard way was a good thing for Subaru Japan.

What makes a Subaru a Subaru? Wagons.

Oh wait...

pretty interesting article. having always lived in places where subi's are super popular (Maine, New Mexico and Northern Arizona), I had no idea their market share was so small.

Good for Subaru.

I am proud to drive and own a Subaru and will continue too

Nothing else drive's and feels like a Subaru

Definitely interesting. Hard to believe sales were so low when I bought '96 Legacy. I've also lived in many Subie-heavy areas... I do feel my '05 LGT stacks up well to many newer cars!

Thanks for posting that up! It definitely makes me proud to support a company that doesn't make a product as vanilla as possible and actually embraces their roots in order to foster a unique personality. So congrats to Subaru for keeping up the fight and continuing to gain ground!
