    Seriously considering this model as it's better on gas than an Outback,
    is certainly more saftey minded (two infants) and well, it's not
    japanese. Is there any special considerations I should take into
    account when shopping? Known troubles, things to look out for, repairs
    I'd like to know should have/will need to be done...whatever comes to
    mind would help.

    Thank you,

    Gas mileage is good on the highways. I drive in th GTA, 100KM
    rount-trip from Aurora to Scarborough , and get 5 trips on a full tank
    (48L). Pure highway is about 25% better (Aurora - Toledo.)

    If it's getting up to 135K or 140K, you're looking at the dread
    plug-change servicing -- about 300-400 dollars up here.

    Good drive (my wife now owns one as well and has decided that she's not
    going to get a SAAB or Ford when her's gets replaced.)
