I've always had Subarus but have found the maintenance costly in the last several years so I've switched to a Honda Element LX. I've only had it a day but love it already. The process of buying was very easy. There aren't many used or new Es in my area of Concord, NH and I'm looking forward to a long relationship. I thought the sunroof was impractical because it was in the rear where my Belgian Sheepdogs ride and it made the area too hot plus without the sunroof it was better insulated and quieter.
