Wanted AWD or 4WD with fuel economy, didn't leave many options. Looked at CR-V, RAV4, Escape, Crosstour, Venza, Highlander, Forester, and Outback. Settled on 2011 Outback with CVT and all-weather package. Enjoying the Colorado summer, but now I'll be ready for winter!
Getting close to 30 MPG on my commute to work! Can't beat the styling, AWD, MPG, Outback is the total package.
An auto-dimming mirror as a standard feature. Can't think of anything else (yet)!
