Overall I'm happy with it. Decent MPG for an all wheel drive SUV without sacrificing to much in the power department. Grips the road (dirt and pavement) well! I can't wait to test her out in the snow this winter.
MPH, cargo room, available features such as all weather package, Sirius radio, etc... oh and being a part of the subie family? Road side assistance etc...
6 speed transmission or O/D for even better gas mileage, better interior construction for less rattle noise. That's really about it. : - )
