I love this little truck. It’s fun to drive and very cheap to operate. Insurance, tolls, taxes, and fuel costs are very low. It’s very light and goes just about anywhere. It’s a pity Subaru stopped making this vehicle in 2012. So I had a hard time finding a new one, but I got lucky and found a left over. It’ll cruise at 120 km/hr and has an extra low 1st gear for pulling heavy loads up hills.
And when you go shopping, you can put just about anything in the back and take it home. Plywood, lumber, you name it, it all goes in the back with ease.
Here’s a few pics.
