ReviewSince we need to haul our 3 large dogs, we need a wagon or SUV. Of all the ones out there this is probably the most cost efficient while still having such a great look and feel. It's interesting to see today the article where it's more fuel efficient than the Toyota Highlander Hybrid. We get 27.5 in town and 30 on the highway (review said that hybrid did 23). She wanted manual, so that's what we have, and its drawback is the slight jerkiness and heavy clutch, but you learn to ease it and we're getting better at it (after 5000 miles). Overall I don't think there's anything close for this price. It's a truly great car/wagon/suv/what-have-you.
Best FeaturesThat subtle Subaru, Japanese styling. It's sport car feel and nimbleness under most conditions.
Worst FeaturesFor the manual transmission, Subaru should work to reduce the jerkiness when the clutch is engaged or when using cruise control downhill.
