No Reason To Buy High-End

Vehicle
2004 Subaru Outback H6-3.0 VDC AWD Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
Review
The functionality of the Outback is great -- hauling bikes; moving friends; loading up my band gear. It does this well while remaining a practical urban car (read: easy to park). However, the VDC has failed 5 times -- each time while in the Sierras during a snow fall! Isn't that when I would most need it? Also, McIntosh has failed twice (radio reception is horrible). The two reasons for why I bought the upgraded Outback are both failing ... why did I spend that money?
Favorite Features
Nothing is outstanding. Good, functional car, and the H6 has good power (odd transmission), but the H6 can be bought for less than you'd spend on a VDC.
Suggested Improvements
A high-end stereo that won't fail every 10 months. Vehicle dynamics that work in SNOW! A dealer service department that can correctly reattach a dashboard ... maybe I'm being picky?
