Review

On paper the car has everything a person needs, but in reality it is lacking at a few areas. First off the 4-speed auto is bad. It is in dire need of 1 more gear. You have to put it into 2nd in order to have any sort of acceleration. Next is the paint quality. It really sucks. There are chips everywhere. Lastly is build quality. The steering-wheel control of the audio system barely works and I have to press very hard to get it to function. Because it still "works" the dealership won't fix the problem. Because of this, it will be the last Subaru I ever purchase. If I could do it again I would not purchase this car.

Everything you need on paper

Suggested Improvements

Fix the horrible 4-speed and the fact that there is a 2 second delay if you floor the gas pedal for a quick acceleration. Get a better paint job service to do the work. MPG is still hovering around 24-26 mixed driving, a little better would not hurt.
