I just bought my outback limited w/VDC about 3 weeks ago. At first, my vehicle was hesitating very badly and I took it back to the dealership where they said it was a loose #3 spark plug wire. I was not happy at this, to say the least. However, since the spark plug has been adjusted 2 weeks ago, my vehicle has been performing very well. My ride is much smoother than most vehicles I've been in; I don't feel bumps in the road as much as other vehicles. The AWD is wonderful in handling a lot of turns as I live in West Virginia.
The panoramic moonroof opens beautifuly with a view of the southern sky. Drives very smoothly at a high rate of speed. Very well insulated such that there is no outside noise with the windows shut. Takes turns very smoothly. The stereo system is awesome!
Acceleration could be improved in going from 0 to 60. Windshield likes to fog up when there is only slight humidity in the air (have to use the defrost too much).
