Re: Are Subarus reliable?

Subaru's are normally rated above average in safety, reliability, and resale value. I have a 2010 Legacy with over 90k miles and haven't experienced any issues. Just routine maintenance. This was my first Subaru and I am glad I made the purchase.

Re: Subaru Blues

I have a 2010 Subaru Legacy with over 65,000 miles and have had no issues. My wife's 2008 Toyota Sienna has been recalled 5 or 6 times to date. That said, overall Toyota's and Honda's are good cars that will retain their value and will last a long time. But, they are not perfect and Toyota has had a...

Re: 2nd bad trans Honda Accord - next car? Subaru?

I have a 2010 Subaru Legacy with the CVT and over 69,000 miles with no issues. If you are considering a Legacy, I would recommend waiting for the 2015 model year. It is completely redesigned and updated.

Re: Affordable Care Act data point

Another thing to consider is that with the Affordable Care Act I believe the lifetime limits have been removed. If your previous policy had a lifetime limit of $1 million, then that would account for some of the difference.

Re: LASIK

I had Lasik about 8 years ago. I would definitely recommend it. It is amazing how much a of a difference a 5 minute procedure can make.

Re: Continuous Variable Transmissions

I own a 2010 Subaru Legacy with the CVT and love it. I never feel the car shift and the fuel economy is better than expected for a mid-size AWD car. I am currently averaging 28MPG in mixed driving and routinely get 31+ on the highway. I would recommend driving the car to see if you like it or have a...

Re: How to purchase Grandmother's Leased Car

My grandmother is currently leasing a car and doesn't plan to drive when her lease is up. I'd like to purchase the car when her lease is up because the car has been garage kept and has less than 4,000 miles on it after almost 3 years of driving. Given the low miles, the car is worth more than the l...

Re: How to purchase Grandmother's Leased Car

You can have Grannie buy it at your/her price (you will have to pay sales tax again even though that was paid up front in the lease...if your state has sales tax) and then you buy it from Grannie for a buck and cost of paperwork, title etc.? Yes, at the worst I would give her the money to purchase ...

Re: How to purchase Grandmother's Leased Car

Thanks for the replies. I'll have to call the lease company with my grandmother to see what we can do. I briefly looked at the lease agreement and thought it said something about the leasee being the only person that can purchase the car at lease end, but then I saw posts here from folks that sold t...
