Had the Subaru for 10 months, the ride is car like, but you sit higher, with a better command of the road. Put synthetic oil and get 28 city, full time 4 wheel drive is great in all weather. The 5 star crash rating across the board, lowered my insurance $300.00 every 6 months.
Crash rating, drive, sit high, great quality.
Get the highway MPG over 30 or add a diesel or hybrid. Even more standard equipment on the X level.
