First Subaru and really like it

I have only had this Outback 2 weeks so cannot really speak to reliability, just going on what Consumers Reports and Edmunds reviews. I really like this vehicle. I traded out of a Honda Pilot I have had for 10 years and really liked the ride, storage, seating, comfort, and style, but gas mileage was poor, and my Children are adults so we do not need that big of a SUV. That said we backpack, fish, camp, kayak, ski, etc. so needed a vehicle that could tow light trailer, do forest service and gravel road, snow and mountain passes. Went of the 3.6 engine for towing, lost some gas mileage, but like the extra acceleration when needed. Does as well as my pilot. The ride with the 18" wheels, and suspension is delightful, smooth and handed the rough spots well. Comfortable seats, love the eye sight features. The mirrors that adjust at night keep me from being blinded in the sideview mirrors. The navigation is really nice and the satellite radio has been a surprise I did not expect to enjoy as much as I do. It handles well, steering give me a feel of the road without being annoying. The braking is fantastic, so smooth and even. I look forward to many adventures with this vehicle and hope it lives up to its safety and reliability ratings. Buying the vehicle was no hassle. Did it through Edmunds, the dealer beat their suggested market price by over a $1000. Up front pricing, relaxed, no pressure, got the color, features, and better price. That was amazing. Dealer and Subaru corp. seem very interested in customer satisfaction unlike some other make I have had in the past and have never bought again. Go Subaru
