We traded in our '02 Envoy for an '06 Outback Limited and are very pleased so far. Living in Chicago, the 4 cylinder (manual) has more than enough power (this coming from someone who went from 275hp to 168hp). And while our Outback can't handle the same "load" quantity as the Envoy, it's more than enough for a family of 3 who packs "heavy" (I got an aerator in the back the other day). Looked at other "cross-over" vehicles, and Outback is the best (especially when you factor in price). So far gas mileage good, but not "rating" - more like 20 city, 26 highway (all around avg on Envoy about 15). A great car for someone looking for a replacement to their traditional SUV.
Sunroof (huge), styling, interior design, heated seats, numerous storage compartments, manual transmission fun to drive.
"One-touch" full down front-passenger window. Another power outlet up front. Front interior light that "automatically" lights up upon entry (car kinda dark at night). "Folding key" (like VW Passat).
