Like it, but could be better

Vehicle2007 Subaru Outback 2.5i Basic 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewOverall, I like the car. Mileage has been just under 27 MPG mixed driving on 3 tanks. I gave up a 1990 Volvo 240 wagon for this and I do miss the Volvo. Seating position and visibility were better in the Volvo. Performance is adequate, especially for the naturally aspirated 4-cyl. Considering the all wheel drive and ground clearance, the mileage is pretty good. Hopefully it will improve with break-in. I liked the looks of the 2007 grille much better than the new '08, so I grabbed it while I could. Haven't had it long enough to really rate reliability, so it gets an 8 rating there.
Best FeaturesSwiss Army knife of a vehicle... sharp looking, attractive and easy to clean wheels, good mileage for all wheel drive, standard roof rack and rubber liner for cargo area.
Worst FeaturesInt fabric too light-colored. Wish it had framed windows; windows flex when closing doors; see track and leak issues down the road. Don't like integrated stereo/climate control. Non-intuitive wiper and cruise controls. Too soft rear springs. Dual exhaust on an inline/flat 4... why? (And why so quiet?)
