I am a potential Subaru buyer, I always do an extensive amount of research before making a large purchase
I'm a bit nerdy. But it has come to a stand still, So I figured why not ask OB owners....
I have always driven Hondas, and I have never owned anything with AWD. I am looking into the OB for a few reasons. 1) I have 2 Siberian Huskies that I would love to be able to take to the snow and on camping trips, 2) Kids are coming into the picture in the next 2 years, 3) General life changes, tired of driving a coupe and not being able to accomplish simple tasks like buying mulch in large quantities, etc
After driving the OB, I admit I like it ALOT
. The ride is excellent and the room is incredible. I'm not sure how I feel about CVT because I have always driven manual transmission vehicles
In real world situations:
What are the advantages to CVT VS Manual?
How does the leather OR cloth hold up with pets?
How do the interior materials hold up to high levels of heat during the summer, and lowers temps in winter/fall?
Are the crash tests ratings available online? (haven't been able to find them)
Are repairs fairly decently priced?
I've heard that the advertised MPG isn't entirely accurate?
I am sure there is more I can not think of. I would like to say thank you in advance for any advice
