Safety, value, and FUN!

ReviewAfter moving to the east coast from CA, I was determined to buy a 4WD or AWD vehicle. I spent the past 6 months doing research & test driving the Audi, Volvo, Highlander, 4Runner, Pilot, CRX etc. No other car offered the safety, gas mileage, reliability, AWD system quality, driving fun & environmental friendliness at a comparable price. The car is a dream for me to drive, w/ plenty of zip, and I've felt SO MUCH safer in snow & bad weather. I'm 5'4" & it's a perfect fit, but my 6'3" husband enjoys driving it too. My Subaru dealer was wonderful--I paid invoice, & he put leather in it for me, so I got all the extras & still have a 5-speed, which I love.
Best FeaturesAWD, active head restraints, ABS & brakeforce distribution, front & side air bags, huge sunroof, 5-speed tranny, auto-dimming mirror, cargo space, peppy engine with plenty of HP for merging or passing.
Worst FeaturesI'd trade some cargo space for a little more legroom in the back seat to accommodate adults.
