I drove this car 170 miles through the blizzard of Dec 26th, 2010 in Upstate NY.
The car performed flawlessly.
It never slipped or got squirrly.
This is my first Subaru after driving Toyota and Honda for 16 years. I am a believer in the symmetrical AWD and low center of gravity thanks to the boxer engine.
AWD, Blue tooth, interior space,
The seat cushion is too hard (after driving 4.5 hours through a blizzard, that is my only complaint).
Subaru should create a luxury brand to compete with Lexus and Infiniti.
This is a solid car.
Add an 8 cylinder or put a turbo on the 6 cyl, add a few nice options and upgrade the interior and you can compete with the luxury brands.
