Pros

Plenty of room, great gas mileage, very comfortable ride, great interior that is easy to keep clean.

Cons

It's such a good ride with great gas mileage that you'll rack up the miles before you know it.  It's always the car we wanted to take wherever we were going!

Perfect Commuter Car That Is Great For Those Off-road Weekends. — Loved the comfort, roominess, great gas mileage, rugged upholstery and dash, great sound. Performs great in snow, off-road, freeway, commuting. Amazing what you can fit when you lay down the backseats. Split backseats allow for extra room with a seat for a rider in the back. Comfortably fit a 6'5" man in back or front, plenty of legroom.

2014 Motor Trend Safety Winner;  Nice heavy reliable car

Cons

Touring may not be worth the xtra $$ go to premium instead

Fantastic — Love the car. We now have two 1 Touring, 1 premium. with the 2014 safety pick, and the 2008 Subaru as a trade in (stopped running...... shop could never figure out what was wrong with the car), it was a no brainer to get the new model

Pros

I like most everything about the car but oil consumption is making me sell it.

Cons

The engines are trash!!!!!  Oil consumption issues, class action suit!!! DO NOT BUY A SUBARU!!!!!

Crap — I like everything about the car but the engine and it's oil consumption problem. It is crap!!!! Subaru is ignoring its customers oil consumption problems. DO NOT BUY A SUBARU!!! I don't know how to say it any better. The car would be awesome if it were not for a completely terrible engine oil consumption problem. Not trustworthy for the long haul. I'm selling it FAST!

Pros

Simple, reliable, great visibility, surprisingly powerful, trust it on trails and snow.

Cons

A bit numb, just horrible visually

Best Practical Car I've Experienced — I was so unexcited to purchase this car, I did it for practical reasons. After 1 year I can see why people get attached to Subarus - the car simply does most everything well. My main complaint is that it is simply a visual disaster to look at - the engineers rule the roost at Subaru, designers clearly have a muted voice. If this balance shifts, I'd be a long time customer.
