Default Which one to buy Honda/Subaru

2008 Honda Accord EX-L V6 80,000 miles ($9500) Vs 2008 Subaru Impreza 2.5 68,000 miles ($10,000) my main concern is reliability with both cars and also snow driving for part of the year. Other details are in consideration such as perks of each car. Yes I have done research on my own of both but I would like other opinions also of people who take care of their car rather then some who wait to fix the car when it breaks or too late then blames the car.

They'll both be pretty reliable. My personal choice would probably be the Accord if I had to pick between the two because power, but if you're worried about snow driving then get the AWD Subaru. I think that's the smart choice. Better MPG too.

yeah that's what I was thinking myself, better interior, more HP but thing what scares me about accords are the v6s problems such as oil burning, 1 quart every 1K miles some have but I guess every car has problem. I like the Subaru, AWD and look.

Subaru. Every bit as reliable in its STOCK form. Awd which is fantastic in the snow, and possibly better resale in the future...
