The closest they could find what I wanted was at a dealer 100 miles away so I waited a day for delivery. I'm still waiting for the fog lights to be installed. Biggest negatives so far is the floor mats were recalled. They are red mottled so as to match the exterior color. Very nice looking, but after registering with Subaru I got an email explaining why they were recalled. Seems the adhesive used during manufacturing was defective and under intense heat conditions they may curl up on the edges. They thought that was a hazard. They'll let me know when replacement mats are available. Out of an excess of caution the dealer took them out before delivery so I had to go buy a cheap set to protect the carpeting.
This is my first new car since a 2000 Solara so after driving 300 miles around town and to the beach so far the biggest pluses are auto dimming side view mirrors and the AM/FM Stereo HD Radio w/CD player system. The sound is fantastic through my Flash Drive plugged into the USB port. I also love the moon/sun roof, the CVT and how it drives. A real solid feel on the road.
