What is it about Subaru's that hippies like so much?? It seems like every place I travel to where there are a bunch of hippies.... they all drive Subaru's'. Anyone else noticed that? What is it that attracts them to Subaru's?

maybe because they are as reliable as a brick?

Maybe it's the beauty of all wheel drive.

Yeah, I don't know either, it's the only thing holding me back from buying a secondhand WRX wagon as our third car.

I actually want a Subaru.

A Subaru Outback would be a great replacement for my Cherokee. I don't 4-wheel like I used to, so the AWD wagon would be perfect.

Sounds like everyone agrees that hippies drive subarus because they are reliable.

next question is: why do they wear birkenstocks?

In the early 90s, I drove a 1984 Subaru station wagon and I couldn't believe how well it navigated steep, icey, snow-packed inclines.

And yeah, my hair was long and I listened to the Grateful Dead.

Me too! My 06 legacy may not be all that exciting but it kicks ass in the Colorado snow, sips gas and has never had a problem. If I want some fun, I'll hop in the '84 blazer with a 4" lift and an NRA sticker in the window.

Apparently they are comfortable as everything, and they last a long time. I personally wouldn't be caught dead in them.

I drive a Subaru, actually two, and I am not a hippie. I dislike hippies actually

You may not have got the memo that the Prius is now the car of choice for the greenies/hippies.

Far from hippie here. My 04 Subaru Forester AWD turbo has had nothing but oil changes and tires. And, it carried my Liberty safe home.

Maybe I have mutant feet (well, they are pretty flat), but they actually hurt to wear.

Lost em a decade back, meh, no great loss...

Did you know that hippies also eat food, wear clothes, and breathe air.


My, I am just finding all sorts of connections.

Fact: Blind squirrels can often find nuts as well, or, hippies aren't always wrong.

When you have no mechanical skills, you look for something reliable.

My wife drives a Subaru, wish she'd bring some chicks home

Oh, and I hate hippies, unfortunately in my area hippies primarily drive Saturns, Subarus, and VW's plastered with faggot-ass hippie anti-Bush bumper stickers.

I drive a Suburu Forrester. It's definitely great in the snow. A couple of beautiful bucks have become acquainted with the back. The seats fold down nicely.

Around these parts, the Subaru wagon is referred to as a "lesbian limousine'.

Yeah... because of their safety features, you'd live to tell about the crash.

I am an ASE mechanic and own a Honda because it is reliable and they hold their resale value.

I haven't seen a man sized Subaru yet.

Anothe­r reason I wouldn't even consider owning one is that there isn't a dealer within 120 miles.

Subaru makes a reliable vehicle that's just quirky enough to appeal to the nonconformist (read: hippy) and the prudent at the same time.
Link Posted: 9/3/2008 6:30:40 PM EST
I have a subaru, and I'm very very far from a hippie. I might be one of the few conservative subaru drivers, but we're out there!
Link Posted: 9/3/2008 6:35:06 PM EST
I really wanted a Subaru wagon and settled for a Mercury Sable wagon.

They are nice cars. I dunno why - but they totally live up to the stereotype of being used by lesbians. My liberal super bitch boss also had one.

Those same hippies used to drive crappy-looking Volvos.

Oh, and Subaru made (still makes?) the absolute FUGLIEST SUV/crossover/wannabe I ever saw, worse even than the Pontiac Aztec! I don't remember its name and I don't want to know. All I remember is it has a grille like a puffer-fish that ate an Edsel!

After all that is said, I used to be able to watch WRC racing on cable (until I moved back to America from Chicago) and I really loved watching those little cars zip around (and the Fords and all other makes, too).
Link Posted: 9/3/2008 9:18:39 PM EST
I guess a lot of hippies like Subarus...

I personally haven't seen any hippy drive a turbo Subaru though.
