Do Pentaxians drive Subarus?

Recently bought our first Subaru (Forester) and I read something that sounded familiar on the Subaru wiki page:

"Subaru vehicles have traditionally attracted a small but devoted core of buyers."

Hmmm... sounds kind of like Pentax.

Well we have a total of four Subarus in this household, one Ascent, one Outback and two Legacy models. Not only are they practical in our Central New York climate but I have developed a good relationship with the dealer over the years. Being able to walk into a friendly atmosphere, rather than a high pitch sales environment, drives a lot of repeat business.

I drove a Subaru before Subarus were mainstream cool.

I learned to drive a stick in a Subaru Brat in the mid-80’s... Own a Crosstrek today.

My stepdad's kids (2 sons, 1 daughter) all drive Outbacks. The daughter is a teacher, and both sons are pilots. None of them shoot Pentax.

A few of my coworkers drive subies but I don't think they're into photography. One is, though she uses Nikon..

Nope never have had a Subaru. I usually drive large Chevies...SUV currently.

SIL has a Subaru, but she is not a photographer.

Another photographer friend drives Hondas and shoots Canons.

Nah, but I wouldn’t mind a WRX. Am driving a 21-year old Honda Civic instead 🤓

I used to have a Forester until it rusted away. Terrible mpg, great car though.

I tend to pick good value cars these days, so in the uk, that generally means French, no more Foresters, they aren't good value.
