Very expensive.

During Cash for Clunkers Subarus had limited incentives compared to other vehicles normally selling at a higher price point and with more content.
20074dr Wagon 245-horsepower 3.0L H6
5-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Very high resale values and popularity make the car very popular for resales. Unfortunately the vehicle has a higher sticker price. This is easily offset in the long run on reliability.
20074dr Sedan 245-horsepower 3.0L H6
5-speed shiftable automatic AWD
$33,000 starting price. For what amounts to a nice station wagon.
20054dr Wagon turbocharged 250hp 2.5L H4
5-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Damn, it was expensive (one year old and cost $24K, original price something like $32.5K) but you get what you pay for I think.

20104dr Wagon turbocharged 140hp 2.0L I4 Diesel
6-speed automated manual FWD
Add a few options and it gets very close to the $30k bracket which puts it in competition with some much more refined machines.

Without the federal tax credit and state sales tax deduction, this car would have been almost out of our budget range.
