We had a steering shimmy at 60+mph, but was fixed with dealer changing wheels/tires upon pick-up. Great all around car, but for a "Premium" trim that costs about $28000, missing too many little details. My Scion($18000) has one-touch auto up/down windows at ALL windows, the Subaru only has the driver's side. For an "outdoors" car, the door cup holders should hold a Nalgene Bottle. Throttle response in Reverse is horrible. Great off road, great seats, awesome amount of space in second row and rear cargo area. Folding cross-members are an excellent idea. the front seats are comfortable and seat heaters are quick to heat. Driving for MPG, I can get around 30-33 highway/city mix!

One-touch up/down on ALL windows, turn radio on/off with steering wheel controls, door cup holders for a Nalgene bottle, more responsive reverse gear, fuel economy gauge(there's already a MPG/Range computer), stock stereo, cheap feeling shifter(also clunks into gear), Subaru thunk when accelerating.
