Had my 2009 Subaru for 5 years and I really enjoyed it.
It drove more like a sedan with the horizontally opposed engine which is one of the reasons I bought this car over the Lexus or highlander.
Great in snow, and fun to drive.
Peppy off the start.
Technology was way behind (nav useless).
In fact all the tech in the car was below average, but if you don't care about that kind of stuff it's not a deal breaker.
Never had any problems with the car.
Gas mileage was low.
13 around city.
Long trips I'd average 21mpg.
Small tank hurt its range.
Couldn't get 300 miles without worrying about where the next gas station was.
engine, steering, cornering, acceleration. awd is awesome on this car.
Tech is way behind.
Gas mileage and range is poor. No bluetooth. Nav is not functional.
