I just purchased my OB last week and I was a former owner of a Honda CR-V. I started having problems with the CRV Air Condenser. Last year I had to have my air conditioner replaced to the tune of $700 plus, because there was a hole in the condenser they said. Less than 6 months later, my air conditioner went out again. I refused to get it fixed. I instead endured driving during those hot, hot summer days. All I could think about was trading it in for a more reliable car that didn't have a condenser exposed to the outside elements. Needless to say I did my research and decided on the Outback. I couldn't be happier.
My favorite features are the rear-view camera, bluetooth for the phone, I just love; and the ipod connection in the arm-rest.
I would suggest making the arm rest a little longer, wider, and deeper to put my purse in when I don't want to carry it.
