I am very happy about my recent Subaru purchase. The car rides great and has good power for a 4 cylinder. I'm transitioning from a GMC Yukon and I love the maneuverability of this car. Good ground clearance and AWD means I won't have to chain up often when I head up to the mountains.
AWD, cold weather features like heated seats and rear view mirrors, the sunroof is huge and it isn't noisy thanks to the pop up fairing, good road view and the eats are comfy and the leather makes this car feel a lot more expensive that it was.
More foot room on the driver side. It feels a bit cramped for my size 12's. Suby should ditch the all in one stereo and climate controls. It doesn't allow aftermarket upgrades nor does it have an auxiliary mp3 player input jack.
