Pros: ground clearance
Cons: Poor Gas Mileage!!!I got very poor MPG! Usually avg. 17-19 city, actually rural area where I live. I was told I would get a lot more when buying it.
Pros: heated seats
Cons: color of interiorI have driven this car through deep snow, wet roads, & it handles beautifully. I love it. Great travel car, smooth ride!
Worst Dealership Ever
Pros: all wheel drive
Cons: style, lack of ac in backDo not like a car that you cannot find parts except for dealership. This includes windshield wipers - wanted to charge me $80 but said they had none. Mechanic I went to got wiper from same dealer. I paid $44.00! This is only 1 of many issues I've had with dealership. Too expensive to maintain.
best vehicle ever for me.

Pros: heated seats
Cons: gas milagethis car is utterly dependable, not particularly peppy but reliable and has plenty of space for dogs, gear and people.
good value, safe, comfortable car
Pros: Traction control/6cyl engine/AWD/better lumbar support
Cons: I don't like where the computer control button as been repositioned versus previous modelsI have had several Subarus, so I know what the other rater means about the loudness. Subarus tend to be a little on the loud side and you do hear the road, but this has advantages. Dealerships are individually owned/operated, so this shouldn't reflect on the car. Both dealerships I've used have been as nice and honest as car dealerships get...
