Having owned three previous Subaru's, I thought it might be fun to try something else for a change. After test-driving several comparably-priced sedans, however, I came back to Subaru--and couldn't be happier with the decision. I've had it for two months now, and have driven under a number of different conditions. It handles like a dream--no drifting, no steering wheel vibration, no problems at all. It's a fine automobile.
The smooth ride, quiet engine, AWD, sound system, appearance (both inside and out), quality of materials and construction.
Slightly higher ground clearance in the front would help avoid curb scrapes. Gas mileage is as advertised, but could stand a little improvement. Like many others, I could do without the mileage indicator--though I often find myself checking it.
