Okay First Impression From First Subaru

Vehicle2011 Subaru Impreza Outback Sport 4dr Hatchback AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)
ReviewI leased a 2011 Impreza Outback Sport (all weather package) in April 2011. I've since put about 18k miles on it and am reasonably satisfied with it so far. It's not a performance model but it's fun to drive and with the seats folded down I get plenty of space to haul things like my entire acoustic drum set. It's your typical, versatile Subaru, but the the quality of the interior is a bit lacking. The seats' cloth is thin and feels flimsy. The front passenger door has rattled from the speaker's bass since day 1. The driver side head rest wobbles a bit. I can even feel where the posts end in the seat-back when I lean my head against it. Also the center console latch broke 3 weeks in.
Best Features-All Weather Pack (heated mirrors, seats and lower windshield for wipers and rubber floor mats and roof cross-bars) -Sport Mode and stiffer suspension than previous model years makes it a lot of fun to drive aggressively (very little body roll) -Cargo room is very spacious with rear seats folded -Subaru reliability is unbeatable and resale is still tops -No mechanical problems to date
Worst FeaturesRoad noise even with the roof cross-bars off is excessive. It needs more sound deadening material in the doors, headliner, and could use some shielding underneath. The sound system is great but everyone had problems with the front passenger door rattling uncontrollably and Subaru dealerships had no clue how to fix it which was very frustrating (not complicated at all, you can easily google it). My center console now has a sweet velcroe feature that keeps it shut since the latch broke. Overall, interior is shoddy.
