Fast but quiet Turbo Wagon

ReviewVery happy with the turbo compared to the 2005. Also, this car is much quieter than the 2005 and has much better acceleration. Very comfortable seats for long distances. Harmon Kardon stereo is an improvement but there are rattles from the front doors probably from things in the storage areas. Prefer the multifunction display to be under the storage area instead of under the speedometer/tach. Also like the feature to adjust the throttle response and turbo to either sport for stronger acceleration or intelligent for better gas mileage. I just leave it on intelligent unless I want to pass and it really "shoots" around when you punch the gas.
Best Featuresacceleration and quietness of the turbo, front seats, versatility of awd and ground clearance. Easy to load bikes on top. SI drive.
Worst FeaturesMake the turbo to run on 87 like Saab. Leave multifunction display like on lower end models.
