I absolutely love my "new car" to me! I recently took it on a short adventure (but only 2 hours) and it handled perfectly and I felt very comfortable going out of town with it. This car is perfect for me and my job. It has just enough 'class' but also some 'roughage.' It has much better gas mileage than my previous large SUV.
I LOVE MY "NEW" SUBARU!" It is beautiful and it is wonderful. I feel very safe driving it.
