YIKES....that's a pretty harsh rebuke! I'm on my 2nd Subaru, and in another 1.5-2 yrs, I'll trade her in for my 3rd. Yes the sh*t paint is FREAKING ANNOYING AS HELL! (I don't understand your interior issues. I throw my mountain bikes, dogs, etc in there all of the time. No bigger/worse issues than the other vehicles we own.)Yep, what everybody else has said, DGM here and it sucks. That and interior gets permanent marks so freakin' easily it is ridiculous. I traded in a 2006 CRV that was in better shape with 137K than the XV with 25K. I have an 07 Avalanche with 100K and it is in better shape, too. My first and last Subaru.
What's GREAT about a Subaru far outweighs its negatives. It's absolutely one of the most versatile vehicles out there. We also have a 2015 Escalade, and a 2014 Nissan Frontier. Both of these are no where near as good in bad Winter weather. You would think the Caddy Escalade would have been fine. Nope. Kept getting stuck in snow and mud. When I would take out one of our Subarus? NEVER got stuck. As a matter of fact I look for roads and hills that look non-passable for fun.
So if you solely bought your Subaru based on looks alone, then you're right. This should be your last Subaru. But there so many better things to a Subaru than just its appearance!
Listen, I'm a HUGELY critical/judgemental person. I call people and products out for their sh*t all of the time. But give your Subaru a chance!! You may be pleasantly surprised! Good luck!
