Traded '99 Volvo XC. Too many
problems/way too expensive to repair.
Waited on the '05 Subarus. Worth the
wait. Great design and ergonomics,
dramatically upgraded safety. Bought
VDC for complete safety package.
Smooth, quiet, fast. IMO, best value
by far in this class, with the
upgrades (AWD - Volvo, Audi, Passat).
Looking forward to 150,000-200,000
miles (at least!) of safe, fun and
quiet driving in all kinds of New
Stability control (VDC). Sportshift.
Steering wheel audio controls. Side
curtains. Handling. Quiet ride.
Clean lines/very sleek look.
Satellite radio option. Tape player
for books-on tape crowd. Include side
cargo nets as standard feature,
especially on top of line models.
Memory seats a must on cars at this
price. Slightly wider seat bottoms.
