This VDC is an amazing car to drive but has had lots of "little" things go wrong with it; also had to replace tires at 30,000 miles - not cheap. AC did not work first several months I had the car; local service could not find anything wrong with it. Seat was broken but was worst after service department "fixed" it. Windshield broke/cracked with one small rock hitting it on way to work. It was out of alignment, local service said no; had warped rotors already. Subaru needs to communicate with service departments. It's been a lot of little things but many of those are service department errors...thinking of trading for a Honda - more reliable and service better.
Love the way the VDC handles; lots of power for getting onto interstates/passing etc.; feels safe in car; good safety features; great stereo system. Lots of storage with seats down; 4 temp heated front seats...great in winter; quiet engine. AWD is great; double sunroof...like having a convertible.
Better tires for the new cars; better communication with service departments; better gas mileage; more soda cup holders; heat controls for back seat passengers; outside keyless entry pads; auto lock on doors when you put car in gear.
