Absolutely. I drive it for work every work day. It's a little over 100,000 miles now with a little damage on the front left corner where I hydroplaned on interstate 65 near downtown Louisville and hit the dividing wall lightly.
With a set of non-bald tires, it rides so much smoother and stays off the walls.
An interesting fact: the driver's seat has a single stage seatbelt, meaning that it just locks and the passenger has a dual stage, meaning that it not only locks in an accident, but it "pre-tensions" by pulling the bottom of the seatbelt about 4 inches tighter.
Question: has anyone who has Eyesight had their windshield replaced with a cheap one? I'm considering going with an ultra-cheap ($263) windshield replacement and wondering what kind of shenanigans I'm getting myself into.
Some new expenses:

These parts were all from SubaruSource.com
That is the cheapest prices that I could find on genuine Subaru parts.
I also bought a used bumper cover from Ebay for $203 delivered. I will have to paint it when it gets here in a little over a week.
