I have driven full size American 4x4 pick-ups for the last 25 years.
Divorce and gas prices caused me to down size.
I love this car, it gets great gas mileage and can still get me to my hunting cabin in Maine.
I must say that 30 MPG is not quite accurate.
I am averaging 25.5 with mixed driving.
I can get 28 on highway at 70 mph.
The car is comfortable, nice riding and capable.
I would buy another Subaru without question and I recommend one to anyone who needs a fun car thats good in snow and a little off roading.
I love the heated leather seats.
I have cronic back pain and drive a lot and the heated seats make my day better.
