Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects the Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value for all trim levels, but not necessarily all available options.
The Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value represents the amount an auto dealer might ask for a specific vehicle; the actual sale price will vary. A vehicle's popularity, condition, warranty, color and local market conditions are factors involved in determining a final price. The retail value is not a trade-in or private party value.
The Suggested Retail value assumes that the vehicle has been fully reconditioned and has a clean title history. The Suggested Retail value also allows for advertising, sales commissions, insurance and other costs of doing business as a dealer. Most vehicles offered at this price have passed an inspection, and some may carry a warranty. Vehicle mileage is assumed to be normal or below normal.

by RS2.5 from Milwaukee, WI | December 21, 2010
My second Subaru bought specifically to get around during wonderful midwest winters. Driving in several inches today and no slipping during stops or starts. Feels extermely secure in less than perfect conditions. The ground clearance and cabin space is greater than my RS 2.5 2 door. The headroom is a little tight because of the retracting moonroof. The leather seats are very comfortable and the dual front-rear consoles are a plus.
Since it is a 2.5 Turbo model with sport shift, performance is race car like. Had all the fluids changed soon after purchase. Have fixed a couple minor interior-exterior broke trim items. Have also added deep grove floor mats available from Subaru.
Multi-CD changer is a little picky about what it will play and no MP3s. Added a cigar lighter iPod FM adapter to add MP3 playback capability.
Warmer weather will allow greater use of the pick-up bed for bikes and hauling.
