additionally the CVT is bothersome, the infotainment is awful and the car is just incredibly sluggish.
it's not a BAD vehicle by any stretch, but not one i can see myself driving into the ground either.
that said, let's talk finances. i was lucky enough to have a trade in gifted to me to purchase this vehicle (my first new car purchase ever).
i got ~$4K for my trade and left the dealership paying $27K out the door, not including the trade in that i used as a downpayment.
i financed the balance for 72 months at 0% and currently owe ~$15K.
the vehicle is in great shape and has 22K miles. the "Subaru Guaranteed Trade In Program" says they will give me ~$21K today if i trade in on a new Subaru.
The two vehicles I am currently contemplating:
- Subaru Outback 3.6R
i await your feedback
