Knowing we would be moving from the South to a snowbelt state, we bought a new OB in 2016 (Limited w/Eyesight). At this point we have 30K on it and I am about 90% satisfied with it. Keep in mind I’m pretty critical and picky when it comes to vehicles - they are more than an appliance to me. We have had only one nagging issue, and that may have been remedied in the newer models: Starting from a stoplight there can be a noticeable flat spot in the acceleration, and no dealer has been able to permanently fix that. Have been told it is the lock-up torque converter, but I don’t buy that as I have been driving long enough to tell the difference. Interestingly, I’ve found that if I re-set the computer by disconnecting the battery for 15-20 minutes, the flat spot disappears for a few weeks.
Other than that, we have been happy. Very comfy ride, the Eyesight is great (mostly) and the quality of construction seems pretty good for current times. Gas mileage was outstanding at a steady 28.4 in mixed driving until I put on Michelin X-Ice snow tires and lost about 4 MPG! Will go back to lower rolling-resistance tires when the weather improves, of course. Incidentally, this car is unstoppable in snow.
One worrisome thing is that we received an unsolicited 100,000-mile warranty this year on the transmission. Evidentially there have been some problems. . . We will probably get rid of it before we run out the warranty, as repair is currently around $8K if we had to do it out of pocket.
One of the main things I like about the Subaru line is that they are engineered from the get-go to be AWD, not a converted 2WD vehicle. The boxer engine design has a low center of gravity and it placed in the vehicle to allow the best F-R balance. I think you will be very pleased, enjoy.
