This is my first Subaru vehicle, and I am very satisfied with the car! It has surpassed my expectations (not an easy thing to do.) It is very comfortable, quiet, and handles better than I expected for a small SUV. The CVT transmission is quick to respond. Performance for the 2.5 litre engine is better than expected. Fuel economy is better than stated by EPA, averaging 27-30 MPG in mostly city driving.
I really like the auto dimming rear view mirror, and the auto dimming side mirrors. Bluetooth audio streaming is slick, interior room, keyless access, ride comfort, handling, quietness, legroom and headroom, visibility is superior, turning radius, multifunction display, usb/ipod/phone connectivity to radio, auto leveling xenon headlamps, sound quality from hardon/karman sound system, user friendly controls, dual auto climate control, fuel economy, CVT transmission, and enigine performance.
Only item I do not care for is the lack of a dome light over the trunk area. There is a light that you can manually turn on on the interior trunk wall, but it is small, and doesn't give enough light.
