Looked at many cars but finally narrowed my final choice to a Subaru Outback Wagon, a Toyota Venza, a Ford Edge, and the Crosstour. Have been very happy with this car! It is quiet on the road and has a nice sound system. Need the AWD for Montana winters and love the sporty look over an SUV (had a Nissan Murano.)
Quiet ride, nice stereo, bluetooth phone capability.
Would love to have keyless entry again (miss that feature). I also prefer chrome wheels but didn't want to spend the extra $2000 so purchased after- market rims for way less that really added to the sporty look of the car.
