I was in need of a vehicle and test drove several this past weekend. I was driving a small GMC SUV and looked across the street at a Subaru dealership. I decided to walk across the street and look at the vehicles. I know absolutely nothing about Subaru, but decided to be open minded. Long story short, I drove off that lot later that day with a new Crosstrek. So far I love the car, and I think I'll be happy with this one in the long term. I was glad to come across this forum as I'm the type to customize my ride a little, and I love seeing what others have done to theirs, and learning more about my car. So far, I have to learn how to use the audio system. I realized I need to read up about it because there's lot there to learn. Anyway, glad to come across this great resource.
