Sure, I'll feed the troll. I inherited my 2000 OBW with 145,000 miles on it and found the previous owner had done ZERO maintenance. I poured money into the car because I did not have the money to buy a comparable used car and driving my Chevy Suburban (which has it's own list of repairs) with 150,000 miles on it was too expensive due to gas and other needed repairs. Basically, I has 2 cars that needed to be fixed up and choose the more reliable cheaper on gas option - the Subaru. The folks here saved my a** a lot of time and money. I have joined the cult of Subaru and understand why folks are loyal to these cars.

I had two Camry's and they were great cars. My '97 died at 216,000 of multiple problems like a bad oil pump. My 2002 was no where near as good. My friend's 2008 hybrid Camry is still a nice car, but not worth what he paid for it. Toyota and Honda have been riding their reputation for several years now and IMHO are not producing the same quality of vehicle that earned them their reps. So, buy what you like or need. You ain't gonna see me on a Toyota site bitchin' about the problems I had with my 2002 Camry. I might go there to ask for help in fixing it though. If I still had it. The dealer gave me $500 for it when I traded it in for my wife's 2011 Sonata. I figure my Subie, with 165,000 miles on it now, is still worth considerably more and might go another 100K.
