Pros Cons
All wheel drive - great in snow Some of interior features, i.e. drivers seat seems low
Feeling of safety; secure solid vehicle Poor mileage - even though a 6 cylinder, it averages 14-17 city.
Engine performance - pick up & power: 6 cylinders, 257 h.p. Looks like an suv; i wanted a station wagon like old subaru
Like the last 4 subarus only bigger, with better mileage Shift lever button returns to sad design of past
Feels big & high enough off the road without being a truck / tank. No lumbar support on front passenger seat
Vehicle exterior styling - height, ease of entry / exit if tall Engine shifting at lower speeds
Acceleration of engine / excellent 4 speed manual transmission Rough ride on bumps; 4 cylinder engine underpowered for this car.
Design of engine - easy access to belts & oil change etc. Mileage efficiecy gauge is worthless. replace with a temperature gauge
Appearance: bought wheel arch moldings, love the look Engine can be very loud outside of car, particularly at startup
Fuel economy is great at 35-50 mph Fold down rear seat. would like whole seats to fold completely
