I previously owned a '97 Outback, so when I got a deal on the '07 I was excited at first.
I liked the high ground clearance, more horsepower, larger fuel tank, and roomy interior.
Then I noticed the still weak fuel efficiency, cheap knobs, cheap and hard to clean interior fabric, and door windows that catch (like my '97).
This was nothing when my head gasket went at 97.5 k miles, like my '97 head gasket that went at 105 k.
Subaru said they fixed this, but too many others have had the same problem.
I think Subaru have lost their quality, and owe all of us the cost of the repair for their poor design.
Next time I'm looking for another brand of car.
The all-wheel drive in a small sized vehicle, which can be found in other vehicles.

Use quality materials for the interior - you charge enough for the cars to afford it!
