Still got the Subaru. It has been on the shingle off the bottom of Castletown slipway in Portland at low spring tide pulling the rib out fully laden with dive kit no problem a few times. Its been used as a tractor to pull all of my friends cars out of a very steep very muddy field when we went for a disastrous camping trip in the summer.
The Geolander tyres that come on them seem to wear well and do alright offroad, but if you drive it hard on the road they squeal like nothing else. On my last car (4motion passat) never heard a tyre squeal once.
Dealer fitted a new clutch and dual mass flywheel on the subaru under warranty because there was some vibration on the flywheel and difficulty engaging 1st gear. Hence keeping it for a while as nothing else seems wrong with it.
