I love this ride! You are pretty much getting a higher end sports car for under $30k. Takes corners very well, even with a case full of stuff on the racks, but still smooth over rougher roads. With the turbo and sport shift you can get around the slow driver on the two lane roads very quickly. Interior is tasteful, nothing gaudy inside. Lower profile and sleeker look than the Outback but still have the AWD. The ability to make some "simple" mods to maximize that boxer engine.
My favorite part is this comment "That is a sweet looking ride, what is that?" You're undercover and unique in this ride. Under cover insurance rates, low rates for the amount of fire under the hood. You get all the high end options standard with the Limited, excluding nav system. The sun roof is huge!
No Aux input on stereo (that feature will be added to '07 models). Front dome light does not come on when doors opened. There are modifications to over come these issues, but they should be standard to avoid any warranty issues with mods to get these features.
