The Honda's are cheaper to maintain than VWs. The reliability has been much better than my new VW was too. Like the extra passenger and cargo space. The road noise has not been bad but wish the suspension and MPG were better. If a good suspension and MPG matter more than price than an Outback would be a good choice too.
It's reliable, roomy, and glad it has that extra horsepower over previous models.
Suspension and gas mileage. The rear speakers/fader could use some improvement too. I have to turn it up all the way for people to hear sound in the rear.
