Mechancially sound. Electronics are terrible
mechanically sound but the electronics stink. Radio won't play. Screen insensitive at times. Not at all pleased with electronic connection with car. Wish I had my old 11 outback . Also brakes will engage without pressing to brake pedal. Get rid of the safe driving message.
Great bang for the buck!!!!
Very smooth and comfortable ride. Gas mileage is above other comparable SUVs. Dash controls are a little confusing but should improve with time using. Would definitely recommend this vehicle to others.
Think before you buy!
I really don't feel safe in this vehicle. The 'A' pillar is slightly too wide and on two occasions has blocked my vision of walking pedestrians coming from the left as I approach a stop sign. Both times I narrowly missed hitting somebody and that is the last thing I would ever want to do. I know that the car is rated 'safe' for its occupants, but it is not safe for pedestrians! I also hate their technology. Do they really need us to agree to a statement that we will drive 'safe' every time we turn the car on? Why did they not have a sign a paper when we first bought the car? Or maybe they could give us a choice if we want to drive safe or not? Then they have the motor shutoff for when we stop at stop signs - we can only disable it right after we start the car every time. I want to disable it permanently - it saves very little fuel and will cost me more in repairs than it saves. The lights that see where I am going are nice, but they turn away from dark objects approaching from the opposite direction. I also presume they will be very expensive to replace. I have also heard that lane control fights you if you want to move over for an emergency vehicle. But I have not engaged it to find out. I just wished that these companies built what we want and not what they want to sell us!
