Everything has worked well so far. In over 40 years of driving, this is the best powertrain setup I ever owned (5 other manual transmission cars and 3 automatics, all except 2 were 4-cylinder engines like this one, but this is the first turbo, and this is my 5th AWD car). The 1.8L turbo can lug, and it is perfectly matched to the 6 speed manual - excellent choice of ratios. Ride is tight and handling is precise. Controls are convenient and well integrated. I am already crying that this model has been discontinued, leaving the US market completely devoid of anything like it. They had no competition among manual transmission AWD small wagons and they discontinued it! Now the quirks. Who in the world would make it nearly impossible to unplug something from the USB socket? What were they thinking? Does everyone except me have super-thin, super-long, super-strong fingers? The CD player is in the glove box. You either need to pull over to the side of the road or else hire a minion to ride along with you to change CDs. The driver probably can¿t do it safely with the car in motion. The front doors swing so wide that it takes unbelievable care and coordination to avoid bashing an adjacent car, wall or pylon in almost every place I have ever parked the car. Seriously, if you want the door to open wide enough to allow super-large people to get into the car, can¿t you at least provide some mild detente that keeps the door from swinging all the way to the widest position unless you really need to do that? These points are not major, but they really are annoyances. I¿m getting decent mileage (27 mpg so far in mixed driving) and the driving experience is even better than I had with the Subaru Outbacks it replaced. (Ratios on the Subaru manual transmissions were so low that the engines spun incredibly fast - about 50% faster than the automatic transmission versions! I never quite understood that. They ran fine, but They were noisy and I expect they could have achieved better economy with better-chosen ratios.) This is the closest thing to the two 2003 Outbacks I got rid of last year and the 1996 Outback I had before those, but with a much nicer drivetrain.Read more reviews at Cars.com
