I replaced a Passat and found the
subaru less powerful and providing
less gas milage than the Passat.The
pluses are the all drive and the fa.ct
that it runs on low test gas.The
superior reliability and better
braking are also plusses so on balance
I like it better than the Passat.
ALL DRIVE SYSTEM.WORKS WITH LOW TEST
GAS.Good frequence of repair record.
Poorer acceleration than a Passat
despite having the slightly higher HP
(165 vs 160) and 10% lower gas milage
than the Passat.No full sized tire
