This was my first Subaru...got this vehicle for my wife because of the safety aspects, but we both love it. This is a luxury vehicle at an affordable price. I can't recommend it enough. Good low end torque, with a little less response on the highway. Corners without leaning, haven't had a chance to put the AWD to test. Interior is top-notch and very comfortable, including for back seat passengers. 3rd row is a joke, which is why we purchased the 5 passenger version. We chose this over X3, Murano, Highland, CR-V and CX-7.
Great winter vehicle...heated mirrors, wipers and seats. Memory seats are nice, especially when one spouse is much taller than the other. Distinctive styling.
Add mirrors to the memory settings. Voice activated Nav. More overhead console storage.
