ReviewI dislike this Subaru more than any car I have ever owned. I avoid driving this car rather than deal with the car's quirky and dangerous characteristics. Examples: Climbing a hill at highway speeds the car shifts between 4th & 5th gears every 4 seconds on average. The car responds to quick acceleration maneuvers with a 2-3 second delay before accelerating; not a good thing on busy Southern California freeways. The car has only 8K miles. After nine months as a Subaru owner I am ready to visit my Toyota dealer and eat the trade-in costs. I hate this car!
Best FeaturesNice looking car, excellent fit and finish, comes very nicely equipped, comfortable front seats, and with VCD handles very nimbly.
Worst FeaturesHate the drivetrain/powertrain/gearing and the acceleration characteristics. All the pluses of this car - and there are many - are canceled out by the quirkiness of the powertrain.
