Worst Subaru I've Ever Owned...

Vehicle2005 Subaru Outback 2.5i AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewThis is our 5th Subaru, 2 Legacy's, 1 Justy and 2 Outbacks & this car has been the worst of the bunch. On the positive side, the gas mileage is good, it runs well and the problems have not been anything serious. BUT, we've had trim pop off repeatedly, carpet come loose & handles break. In 4 years/77,000 miles, we've put in 5 headlight bulbs, all front & rear brake pads (my '88 Chevy truck had the original pads and bulbs in it when I sold it in 2004 w/130,000 miles), replaced the interior bulbs 2x, both rear wheel bearings (under warranty at least), put 3 O2 sensors in and now the car has a new whine in the rear. The nearest Subaru dealer is 50 miles away and difficult to deal with.
Best FeaturesGood mileage, peppy, headlights that turn off w/the ignition.
Worst FeaturesIt would be nice to be able to lower the windows in "Acc" mode. Who needs their windshield wipers sitting w/the engine off? DRL's are too bright and are easy to confuse for headlights at night. Maybe automatic headlight's/DRL's to prevent DRL's at night?
