This is my 2nd Subaru after owning a 2007 Outback for 13 years. I've been in some really cool places like the hot springs in Strawberry Park near Steamboat, CO in January. Ive driven to the top of mountains in snow so deep you could hardly walk in it. If you want a reliable car that sticks to the ground, Subaru is a good choice. Their all wheel drive system seems to be a cut above the competition and they are reasonably priced considering the reliability. I hated to see my old Outback go but no car last forever.
I love to punch it when the light turns green when driving in the snow. The front wheel drive cars are slow off the line but the Subaru is very quick. You just have to watch out the cross traffic that can't stop.
I got the adjustable center arm but it could still come out a little further. The stereo can be adjusted to sound great but seems to require different settings on FM vs. CD. Having a pre- selected A/B equalizer button would be a nice touch.
