First tank: 17mpg, second tank: 22mpg. Third tank ave 24.3 so far. Mileage 600 ish with 65% city and 35% highway. Hoping for higher. Tire noise quite loud. Doors very thin and light. Long shift delay from reverse to drive when cold, puts passengers at risk. Subaru says it’s “normal” essentially placing blame with owner. Tilts in crosswinds at 65mph. Leans too much in corners, but still feels predictable. Overall handling is good. Ride is supple. Brakes feel mushy but work fine. Steering is too heavy at all speeds. Paddle shifting with CVT works well.
Suspension. Looks with Sport wheels. Paddle shifting. Heated seats. Rear leg room.
Beef up doors so I don't worry about my kid every time we drive this car. Beef up the anti-roll bars so it doesn't lean so easily in the wind and when entering turns. Get rid of shift delay so I don't worry about someone hitting us while I'm trying to get out of the way. Insulate doors and wheel wells so the roar of the tires and wind doesn't make driving this car so exhausting. Increase hp and torque 5-10%. Since it's not safe or efficient it might as well be faster.
