This is my first Subaru; my last lease was a Toyota Highlander. When I turned it in, the new ones were huge and very expensive. So far, I've liked this car; it's comfortable and has been reliable, except that I've had some issues with the tires...one a nail picked up and another tire had a rim that was coming away..Very strange. The big downsides for me are: the gas mileage, no automatic hatch opener and it's very hard for a short person to close the hatch. Overall, though, I would consider leasing another one, particularly if some of these flaws were corrected.
A very good-looking car, fairly comfortable power seats, roomy interior and a very secure feeling in the snow. I have a killer driveway, so this is important.
Better gas mileage, automatic hatch opener and closer (which would take care of the problems a short person has closing the tailgate.
