For the last couple of years we had been looking at sedans. We even rented an altima for a trip to Florida. We then changed our minds. Reading reviews, listening to current owners (two in the family) started us looking at the Nissan rogue and the Subaru Forester. We gave up the nice soft and quiet ride of our Camry, for the safety and all wheel drive. We love the leather heated seats, however, the controls are located in an awkward spot on the console, under my elbow. We wish the hatchback had a "pop open" feature on the remote. Little too much road noise and the gas mileage could be a little better with the 4 cyl. Other than that, we love the car.
We love the Limited package, outside styling and the safety features and ratings. Heard good things about the Boxer engine. We've had the vehicle about two months and are still finding nice little features we didn't know about, even though the salesperson appeared to be pretty thorough.
Move the heated seat controls to the front of the console. Provide a "pop open" feature, for the hatchback, to the remote. Little less road noise. My wife would like for the doors to lock automatically when shifted into gear, and unlock when in Park.
