Have 2500 miles on the Outback, had a GL w/200k before. This is a great improvement, the car is significantly quieter, and the torque acceleration is much much improved. The entrance/exit is tough, and could be improved by memory settings so it would slide the seat back and forward when you exit and enter. Non multi-port FI leaves the occasional accelerate/decelerate bounce in slow traffic. Overall I really like the car.
Quality of interior, exterior
Good engine compartment layout
Love the all-weather features (too bad for those who live in warm areas!)
Cruise set well-not too loose (Honda) or too tight (Ford)
Tilt wheel travel-more up/down, should have in/out
More leg clearance on exit or entrance of the vehicle
Lose the center headrest in the back-it limits vision, and I feel obligated to keep it
