I hate going to the gas station. It is one of my least favorite errands... So i like my subaru cause i really only go once every 9-10 days depending. I feel like i get good gas milage. Nothing outof the ordinary... Fill er up 50 bucks.. And go.. About 23/28. There was no difference between the outback (which has since been totaled out by accident in december... ( Old people really need new driving restrictions! Lol.. Not a horrible accident. I was fine, my son was not with me. Everyone waled away...) 

I have recently driven the new outback and the new forester. Omg, both are even nicer now! Lol... And they have butt warmers, i live in the NE... Have always wanted a butt warmer, but it wasnt available before! And yes, all wheel drive is a must for me, we are expecting 2ft of snow tomorrow! Ahhhhh! 

They handle amazingly well in snow and rain. No slipping, no hydroplane. Just great! 

Quoting MissyB1011:

How are they are gas? What do you like & dislike?

I have to have AWD or 4WD where I live. I would love to get a Subaru for my next vehicle.

Glad you are all ok!

I live in southwestern PA in a more rural area. We don't have as much bad weather as where you are at, but it's enough to need the awd. The idea here is to plow a little and throw down some cinders and hope for the best.

Good luck with that next storm blowing thru! Stay safe!

Proudly driving our 4th generation Honda Oddessy.  It's simply the best car for getting kids around and for long trips visiting family.  Safe, economical, and reliable...what more can a mama want in a car?

I am most certainly a van mom and proud of it too. lol   Although, I think I would not mind having a truck of the same size as our mini van.  Just for my own personal use. :)
