Very good wagon

ReviewFuel mileage varies depending on whether I'm driving (31 mpg) or my wife (24 mpg). No problems after 10 months of ownership. RPM at highway speeds seems high (approx. 3000 rpm at 65). This results in noticeable noise at higher speeds and lower fuel economy. Protenza RE92 tires receive poor ratings by consumers on tirerack.com. Especially for winter conditions. People who live where it snows should consider buying better tires for winter. Save the Protenzas for the summer. Stability control should be offered as an option. Although I feel the 168hp motor is adequate, Subaru should offer a 180-200hp motor in addition to the 168 and 250. Shifter is stiff in cold weather. Great car in general.
Best FeaturesFuel mileage, space, safety, looks, dependability, all wheel drive.
Worst Features200 hp motor option (something between 168 hp and 250 motor) 2) Subaru needs to offer stability control 3) possibly higher gearing for highway driving. 4) better standard tires. 5) offer a towing package. -- not much else.
