I have 350 miles on my new sube, and it corners very well. I got the sedan 5spd, the throw on the shifter is a bit long but I really enjoy driving the car. I looked at a Civic and a Mazda 3, but I do not like FWD, because of the odd pull on hard corners. Thus far a wonderful car, wonderful traction in rain, and just all around a great car. The inside looks good, bit cheap looking with the plastic, but you are going to get that with a base model car. It was built 100% in Japan, parts and built, I have no doubt of its quality, And the dark gray paint with no orange peel looks steller. I LOVE MY SUBIE!!!
AWD! No off-camber pull and traction! Fun to drive even below 3k during the brake in period. I am euro shifting to keep the RPMs low during break in, it still has power, and feels wonderful! Great car.
Nothing, well possibly make the rear end look a little better on the sedan. It looks good, just not as good as the 3, to my eye.
