Great car traded in my sport car, BMW which was in the shop frequently.
Having said that I am done with "German" Engineering.
I got the Outback for obvious outdoor activities as well as daily driver.
The car handles well around sharp curves, their are to minor quirks with the car.
1) audio system to blue tooth, sometimes fades in and out.
2) Ignition keys, this I find more annoying I have not had ignition keys on a car for over 6 yrs but if you can go "retro" then it should not bother you.
Overall great car, fun to drive. Impressive off road not only for its handling but the fact that it handles those bumps flawlessly.
Works well on potholes also.
Comfortable seats, lots of leg room.
Easy to use roof rack.
Get rid of ignition keys, go with the push button start.
