This car does not have as much storage as I would like. In addition, I had a remote start installed when I purchased it, and it has never worked properly. I have had it repaired 3 times - an issue with the hood switch. The third time was just this last week, and they replaced, rather than adjusted the switch. So far, it appears to be working. Other than this, I think the car is good looking, has some outstanding safety features and gets decent gas mileage.
I love my car! The only thing I would change is the trim level. The radio options as well as console displays could be better if I had chosen a better trim level. I would also prefer to have buttons to adjust the seats, but that would have been achieved from a higher trim level as well. It gets great gas mileage, is quiet and has more than enough space for me while also not being a large car.
I have had the car since February 2017 and haven't had any mechanical problems with it at all, it drives smoothly and gets about 25 mpg on roads and around 30 on highways. Only issue I have ever had with it is it is noticeably pushed by the wind at high speeds, whereas my old 2001 forester would not have been impacted at all. You have to adjust to the wind or it can push you out of the lane.
