Having owned this car for over 10 years I can honestly say it has never left me stranded or put in in danger. Rain, Snow, Sleet or whatever else mother nature can throw at it, it does an amazing job of keeping on the road and getting you there safely. It does give up a bit on fuel economy because of the all wheel drive all the time but the safety is worth it IMHO.
The car has an amazing upgraded Alpine stereo with handsfree bluetooth. That was really the only thing this car needed to have it all. Iphone connects nicely and all calls are clear and easy. After loving this Subaru for over 10 years it is no surprise that I bought another one. Great experience and such a smooth comfortable ride even for a bigger person.
