Purchased Subaru for my wife. Just moved to Vermont so her corolla would'nt make the winters there. I drive an Audi. After taking the outback for a 3rd test drive. We could not see spending the additional money for the Audi Q5. The Subaru is truly priced well from the get go, and is an excellent value. The steering is not numb and my wife feels it is "FUN" to drive. Now i know why it seems to be the Vermont state car. A.J.E.

Leather should be a stand alone option and as such would be less money to add on.
