This is our first Subaru and my Husband
and I are very pleased with it. We are
skiers and the car is great for our ski
tirps up to Vermont. We now have a
baby boy and feel that the car is more
than adequate for our growing family. I
do however, wish there was more room
between the back and front seats. It
is a bit tight for the driver with a
rear facing infant seat in the back
seat. We like the racks on top due to
the fact that our skis will now have to
ride on the roof to make room for our
son. Being a 4 cyl, it does lack a
little power on uphill excelleration
but this is something we can live with.
Excellent gas mileage makes this
vehicle a great alternative to the
SUV's on the market. I also like the
sporty styling. This is not your
parents station wagon!
Ergonomics on the interior could be
better. It seems that all of the
controls could be much more centrally
located. Also, the seat heater
switches are in a bad place, they are
constantly being turned on by accident.
