Purchased a 2.5 Limited w/Special Appearance Package. Black car w/brown interior and Nav/Sunroof. I also ordere a trailer hitch and 110v outlet. Very good looking car and interior. But the car sold itself, very good price and buying experience from Rich at Morristown Subaru in NJ. I come from stick shifts and was hesitant going with CVT, but I am amazed at the effortless, 'gliding' driving experience. The boxer engine torque is always captured by the CVT, a trip upstate NY in rolling hilly terrain was absolutely no issues. Highway driving so far gives me 26-27 mpg, I will keep chasing the 30 mpg target.
I love this car! A fantastic purchase! I looked at Santa Fe and new Pathfinder also
Simple and functional interior with nice touch of luxury, dashboard lighting, drivetrain & engine, build quality (solid and tight), seats and seat color (brown), height over ground, sound system (HK system sounds great to me, Enja on full blast fills the car with great music), headlights/fog lights - strong lighting even without HID, great space in trunk, push button start and keyless access, blinkers in mirrors (finally!)
I do not think the doors auto-lock once you drive, the NAV system/screen is a little 'yesterday' (but everything functions excellent and as prescribed), no dust/dirt cover under engine (I foresee a dirty engine over time unless I can find an aftermarket piece). But no major complaints
