I've owned Hondas and a VW in the past and am able to say my Subaru Wagon is a nice mix of both Honda's reliability and VW's style and handling. The acceleration in Sport mode is decent but what is most impressive is the excellent, smooth, quiet, luxurious ride and sharp handling. It's a fun car to drive and the build quality is evident.
I just picked the car up and I love it. Traded my 12 mpg Durango and am already getting 24 mpg on my first tank. Lots of safety features make this an extremely safe vehicle. Lots of fun features personalize the vehicle and make it a blast to drive.
Love that accessory plug-in in the center console for my MP3 player which works well with the 6-CD stereo. Sound is excellent and my sub-woofer isn't installed yet!!
