Unfortunately Subaru wasn't on the list. But in general Subaru is comparable with Toyota in similar surveys.

I see Fiat all over that wall of shame.




Just replace the word Fiat with Chrysler and you can see into the future of American motoring...... Gubment' Motors will race to meet them too.

Get one Fiat X1/9 and one Fiat Uno Turbo, move the engine from the Uno to the X1/9 and you will end up with a car that actually isn't bad!


B.t.w. I did see that the EU now have approved that Fiat can buy Chrysler.

Chevy Nubira? I'm so sad we missed that one here...


No we had that car under the Daewoo brand, almost all Chevy brand cars in Europe are rebadged Daewoos, most GM Europe cars are under the Vauxhall or Opel brands (and mostly better than the american cars).


I drove a Euro spec Mk II Focus hatch in S Africa, fantastic car and honestly the interior makes the interiors of subarus look like crap, and Ford US cars definitely crap.




Interior space is way bigger than the current gen Impreza hatch as well.
