Think twice

Vehicle
2007 Subaru Forester 2.5 X 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)
Review
Think twice before buying this vehicle. We had a '98 & 2000 Forester. For the price, you couldn't ask for more. Purchased 2007 Forester in Jan. '07. Major complaint is the design area between the hood and windshield, the hidden vents, wiper motor, defroster, etc. Living in upstate New York, we have had three occasions where the snow & ice will accumulate on the wiper blades, arms, and in the space between hood & windshield, freezing, & preventing the wiper motor from working properly. Never happened with the '98 or 2000. Vents were on top & visible, not hidden. Subaru's answer, "get winter blades" or should have ordered premium pkg., $1000.+, includes deicer strip.
Favorite Features
AWD - never a problem in snow.
Suggested Improvements
Go back to old design showing vents; make windshield deicer grid separate option & not included with moonroof & other extras; go back to external antenna instead of in the rear window (poor reception); redesign center console cupholder,too far back, made for 6'5" person, dangerous reaching.
