ReviewRecommend to those who a) haul large object every now and then (it is not a pickup truck, it's a car with a small bed), b) don't race (if you do, go with Forester or WRX), c) live in higher altitude (above 8,000 ft) and still need responsive engine, d) not too concerned about gas mileage (about 22 mpg), e) like the looks (at least able to tolerate), and f) if your bike costed more than $1500 and always nervous when it is on roofrack. It's a good alternative car for regular light DIY Home Depot kind of folks.
Best FeaturesAccelerates in 10,000 ft elevation in 5th gear, able to haul mt bike on the bed (no more fear of bike ripped out of roof rack when passing semi), enough ground clearance for rocky trail heads, sleeper (porker) looks, cargo bed light (very very handy in night bike ride preparation).
Worst Featuresloud wastegate flutter (almost sounds like grinding), cup holder location (rub cups with my elbow every time I shift), door panel weatherstrip came loose (build quality - replaced under warranty), low headroom (same as Legacy, not Outback).
