After 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.
AWD, 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
I'd trade some cargo space for a little
more legroom in the back seat to
