Bought my first Subaru after trading in my '01 GTI 1.8T. Still getting use to sitting up high, but happy to be in a car with AWD and some very nice features like Bluetooth and the rear view camera. While I miss the sporty VW, the Outback handles much better than a Grand Cherokee. Paddle shifters great for snowy conditions. Upgraded to the HK stereo but the $400 media hub can not access IPOD play lists and requires you to scroll through artists in alpha. order. The exterior/interior look great but wish there wasn't such a gap between the body and the wheels. The while good interior Subaru over looked some very easy upgrades, like automatic locks and four one-touch window buttons.
Auto Lights, Puddle Door Lights, CVT, Plenty of Room, Plenty of storage for driver, Rear Camera built into Rear View Mirror, BlueTooth, Steering Wheel Controls, Paddle Shifter on Steering Wheel, Reclining Back Seat, Extra Cargo Room under the Trunk Floor Mat.
Media Hub is nearly worthless, Automatic Locks should be standard, Remove the MPG Gage, One-Touch for all Windows, Needs a folding key or key-less option, No light in the glove box, Wish the BlueTooth recognized multiple phones at once.
