unfortunately, its premium only. we get about 17mpg. get the 7 passenger, same price as the 5 passenger, and when we bought ours, they were giving a $1000 allowance on trade in for a 7 passenger.agentorange said:Nope no more younger siblings :lol: i guess he just wants the 5 pass ltd and yeah i will try to convince him on getting the NAV system. it will be just for him & my mom. How's gas mileage though? does it run on premium or regular unleaded? Power wise? it looks heavy to me. i was gonna test drive one today while waiting for my oil change on my FXT at the dealer but cousin was off (btw cousin works for subaru dealer) so we might get some discount
anyway thanks for the reply
I forgot about the 5 passenger thing to a degree. In fact, I may start an open debate in another thread on this. But just as a preview, I believe the 5-passenger is a waste of time due to the point Ed just made on pricing, but also because of the lack of flexibility. If you want 5 passengers only and need the cargo room, fold the third row down! I only bring out the third row when it is needed, it only takes a second (almost literally) to fold it flat into the floor, but at least its there when you need it. Considering it is the same price and you can get more options on it (5 passenger is base only with no upgrades allowed), it is a much wiser decision. I personally think Subru should discontinue the 5 passenger as their is no need for it.[email protected] said:unfortunately, its premium only. we get about 17mpg. get the 7 passenger, same price as the 5 passenger, and when we bought ours, they were giving a $1000 allowance on trade in for a 7 passenger.
