Fine small SUV choice. Very solid build. Excellent crash test scores. View is clear and unobstructed. Has good acceleration. The leather interior and wood steering wheel are nice touches. It doesn't sit so high as to make it difficult for some to get into and out of, similar to a car. This is my 3rd Subie, and they've all been tanks in winter driving. The gas mileage is a plus also.
View, safety features, ease of getting into and out of, large moonroof, weather band, fuel economy, smooth car like ride, great for snow covered roads. Overall looks of exterior. This vehicle feels secure, it's well built. Subie's have a reputation of being built to last, and they are.
Audio - some controls / buttons are small and hard to find, vanity mirrors should light up, glove box and center console should light up, should have arm rests for front seats, rear window should open separately from door, would be nice to have audio controls on steering wheel.
