I wanted a AWD vehicle that got decent MPG. My 1st impression when sitting in the car for the first time was WOW! you can see everything from the front, back & all sides. The leg room was better than the Mazda Tribute that I was driving and the seat in the Subaru is awesomely comfortable! Loved it from the get go. I'm up to 6,000 miles and the MPG combine city/highway is now at 30 MPGs steadily for the last few weeks, it was in the low 20 MPGs for a few thousand miles. I legally tinted all windows except windshield and added the bug shield, aero splash guards and side window deflectors and the car looks hot! I'm very happy so far
Tech features. Improve Bluetooth software like downloadable phone book option. The trip computer scan button should be on the steering wheel not the dash area as it's way out of reach. Have window tinting OEM so it's not done at a body shop or window shop.
