After buying Toyotas, Hondas and Nissans since 1980 we decided to give Subaru a try. Sure glad we did.
Fit and finish are excellent.
Gas mileage is good at 28 mpg average.
Heated cloth seats and HK stereo are fantastic.
Parking brake is a joke (someone really is trying to out think themselves).
OEM Bridgestone tires we're terrible in the first snow storm encountered so replaced them with Michelin MXV4.
Now it's hard to get the tires to slip.
This is an overall great car for Colorado or northern climates and would highly recommend to anyone.
Plus it is assembled in the US.
