Great winter car, has some quirks

ReviewI purchased this car for winter driving in NJ and it was FANTASTIC considering the brutal winters for 2002-4. Some quirks I've noticed are the occasional burning smell coming from the vents after bad weather driving (probably an AWD thing) and a whistling windshield in high crosswinds when all windows are rolled up. Neither of these can be addressed by the dealer, of course. Through various internet user groups, it seems these are common Subaru quirks and although annoying, are mostly sporatic and shouldn't deter anyone from buying this car.
Best FeaturesAWD is amazing, plain and simple. The car is roomy, I'm 6'4" tall and have pleanty of head room.
Worst Featuresthe burning smell seems to be a common Subaru complaint, I'd like to see that addressed. I would like to see a full folding rear seat. A section of the rear seat folds down for skis, but not the entire seat, makes it difficult to move large objects.
