Got this after owning a 98 model for many good years. Mileage had been good, we break 30 on trips. Like the perforated and heated leather seats, too. Good size for a family of 4 - small outside, big inside. Ours hasn't seen the dealership since we bought it, our salesman says we see him every 7 years, when it's time to buy a new one. I'd like to see them add Direct Injection and maybe the CVT from the Outback. All in all we're happy and would buy the same car again.
Space efficiency, fuel efficiency, and low cost of ownership.
DI, CVT, round cup holders and a height adjustment on the passenger seat.
