So far so good. I test drove the new Outback, not please at all with the drive. The Forester however is easy to maneuver, no major blind spots. Leather is a must, other models w/o leather seem sub-par.
awd, comfort, style, space, moonroof (huge!).
Radio-sound system, road noise, radio- sound system, please add some horsepower to X Models and radio- sound system. Also need to have satellite radio ready, not a $400 add on.
