The car had alot of new buttons I had to fig out. But the more I drive it the more I like it. It stable nimble,just big enough . I have the 4 cyl and its fast enough for me..I love the sound of the boxer engine. My only complaint is the radio kinda weak..for a Harmon kardon...oh if you get one get rid of the tires that come on it mine were goodyear they road rough and noisy..I put cooper tires on it ran smoother handled. Better. I was there when they took the goodyear tire off the wheel I picked it up with one hand and picked up the cooper in the other the cooper was heavier more solid tire..

I have recently upgraded my home cars to get accident prevention and driver assist features. Ended up buying 2018 Subaru legacy and now a 2020 Toyota sienna. The driving assist ease/comfort of the Subaru is way ahead of the Toyota. It works at low speeds and eases my commute in the crowded Washington area highways. I love it
