Not quite what I expected

ReviewWe have a 2006 Outback and love it. So I wanted another Subaru because of the AWD. Considered another Outback but went with the Outback Sport. The fuel economy is not what I expected, the automatic shifts later than when I think it should (possibly contributing to the fuel economy issue), and the manual driver's seat gradually sinks down. I filled up the gas tank on Saturday, drove approximately 30 miles in-town, and I'm down below 3/4 of a tank. That's similar to what I was seeing with my 2001 Chevy Blazer. Also, snow gets packed up behind the wheels - when I try to kick it off, the splash guards look like they're about to come off.
Best FeaturesAWD, cold weather package, steering wheel-mounted controls.
Worst FeaturesDriver's seat should stay where it is set, higher and more forward center console (even with the extender it could be more comfortable), better snow removal or clearance behind the wheels, crisper shifting.
