"Plenty of power and excellent handling - stiffer than the larger volvos, but more precise - more like a sports car. Handles extremely well in snow and ice. Interior is super nice for driver and passenger, good controls and great sound system. Rear is suitable for smaller adults or children. A bit pricey compared to a subie, but less than an audi."

"I own this car and drive most of my miles in the winter! The manual 6 speed transmition with the T5 AWD is a dream to drive. Active driving experience in the sport wagon class! I am active young and single, anyone looking for an amazing driving experience with wagon abilities, "you WANT this car" Reliable, smooth, FUN!"

"Owned for 3+ years (early production model), bulletproof reliability, excellent performance. Mileage in the high 20's/low 30's on typical city/hwy commute. Small enough to get around city congestion, big enough to be practical and comfortable for family w/drivers over 6 ft. Only complaint was OEM tires - swapped for Bridgestones @ 30K which improved road noise and wet handling. Uses 89/91 octane fuel."

"We love this car--it has been such a wonderful ride for us, especially when our children were smaller. We are looking now for a minivan-type vehicle because as our boys get older is it getting a little cramped. It has great pickup, and the interior styling can't be beat. Great soundsystem, as well."
