Just got back from my first road trip in my new car. Enjoyed the performance and the feel of the car. There are a few things about the interior that I do not like (see below). I considered this purchase for a very long time and did a lot of research. I think it will meet my needs for a long tome to come. I am a first time Subaru owner, but based on how many people drive them here in Central Oregon I don't think I will be disappointed.
Lots of fun to drive. Hugs the road well. I can't wait for snow season to see how it performs on snow and ice. Cargo area holds a lot more than you would think by looking at it.
I don't like the material that is on the front armrest and on the back window sills because it left permanent marks where my dog put his paws. Not durable enough in my opinion.
