Inquiring minds want to know...

The most loaded Outlander with AWD actually has the worst 0-60 time of any car for sale in the country at a snail-pace 11.2 seconds

Being part of GM may actually help here. I think Subaru is now lagging behind in electonic management systems and powertrain research.
Some of the newly developed cars out there may have a generation's advance. How much has the transmission system changed from 10 years ago?

Times have changed and with the poor quality and reliability ratings from Consumer's Reports, JD Powers and the like, as well as this board's experiences, competition will no doubt get more intense.
I love my 'ru but am glad there are alternatives that may yield better reliability and value. I don't need a headgasket or other expensive repair in a new car.
Subaru needs to redesign thier line and return to the days of high quality and cuttting edge inovation.
I don't think all the blame can go to GM.

Yeah, subaru needs to make their 6 speed "tiptronic" style, with paddles on the steering column
