ReviewIt is absolutely fantastic car. The infamous turbo lag can be sometimes annoying, but after 6 months I almost mastered beating it, when need power. Florida is flat, but those wet ramps are great! I took a wagon for utility (also looks are in my opinion better then sedan) and can recommend all cargo accessories from Subaru (bin, net, tray, etc.). Also get the armrest extension if you are tall. An of course, get short-throw shifter! Fuel economy is an oximoron for this car: 20/25 premium (at best) is pathetic for a 2.0 l engine. Highway can be even worse if keep the speed above 80 mph. But boy, is it worth it.
Best FeaturesGood ergonomics, fantastic seats, nice accessories, short-throw shifter. An of course: power and handing (control).
Worst Features1. Closing door sound! Instead of a click, I hear all empty molding shaking inside. 2. Give me sunroof! 3. Do something with fuel consumption. Even 10 percent would be great. 4. Reduce the turbo lag. Do all that, but don't charge $5k more!
