It 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
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
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.
Good ergonomics, fantastic seats, nice
accessories, short-throw shifter.
An of course: power and handing
1. Closing door sound! Instead of a
click, I hear all empty molding shaking
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!
