We wanted a smaller suv to replace the aging Explorer. It has sufficient power even with the 4-speed auto. It's extremely comfortable. It should have a power seat for the front passenger but doesn't. Has had several rattles from the get go. The radio is not as good as the Explorer. On the interstate you could be running 80 before you realize it. It's that quiet. It has ample room for our purposes and should make a good vehicle for traveling. So far we're not sorry we purchased it.
Large sunroof. Navigation system. AWD. Overall comfort.
Better radio. Power seat for front passenger. Move the heated seat controls either forward or to the dash. Subaru-do better build, reduce the rattles. Better manual for the navigation system.
