Purchased this OBS 4A a week ago and now have almost 600 miles on it. Nice little car with a roomier interior than one would think. My first Subaru (I've owned 62 vehicles including all the German and most Japanese). I'm averaging 25 mpg in mixed driving and expect it to go up another 10 to 15%. The OBS has good content. It does lean a bit as others have mentioned but not to a point of concern. My only complaint is of some dash plastic vibrations, lack of a sorely needed 5 speed auto, and lack of moonroof. I was aware of the latter two shortcomings going into this and purchased it anyway. I expect my OBS to serve my purposes for a couple of years and I am really quite pleased with the vehicle
Symetrical AWD, great content for a $21k vehicle, decent enought mpg, I like the new look (5 door only), roomy interior.
This is 2008 Subaru. Where's the 5 or 6 speed auto? Tighten up the handling so it is flatter through the twisties. Offer a 'moon'. A bit more sound deadening.
