I have a
2012 @ have put 20,000 miles on it.
This one has the deluxe stereo & $300 speaker option, which is good because sometimes you can actually hear some music above the engine/transmission noise when you're starting off & the awful tire noise all the time.
Subaru apparently has no knowledge of sound proofing.
They ruined the car for me by choosing these noisy low rated tires.
Maybe I'll like this car once these tires are replaced with something better.
Visit the Tire Rack site and get ratings on some nice all-season tires, it will make your car much quieter.
These Avid tires are also used on the Mazda 3, as both cars are built in the same region of Japan.
A shame, as Yokohama can build a quiet tire, and do so here in North America.
