Purchased As New
Could not be happier, Bought this in May 2010 and I am averaging 32 MPG - the majority freeway. In 8 months I have put on 25,000 miles and only had one issue. The steering wheel shook at 65-70 mph but Subaru came out and fixed it to my satisfaction. I also did not like the understeer in a turn; most manufacturers do this to allow for inexperienced drivers as it can be eaasier to correct. Changed the rear sway bar from a 15mm to a 19mm (the one found on the Subaru STI) and notice a handling difference in the turn and stickiness to the road. Excellent clearance and I have pushed this through some large snow storms. It seems to work well, not the big 4x4 I am use to driving but at least I do not have to stop every day and fill up. The acceleration on the highway is great, the 4 whines a little if you punch it but I would expect it to. The CV transmission (no gears) is a first for me and to date seems to be working well. The option to mannual shift (in automatic or mannual) is fun but I have not really used it yet. The remote start is a nice feature. I wished the XM satellite antenna was outside versus on the inside front windshield (I heard they changed this on 2011s). I had to go to an aftermarket 2" receiver hitch; the only option they offered was a 1 1/2" which for me is a waste of a hitch. The 2" mounted below rather than through the rear bumper which I prefer because the factory hitch stuck out too far (a good shin banger).
Overall good fuel economy, good body feel, interior well thought out.
