I was looking at the Outback before I bought my Santa Fe. It appealed to me because of it's luxury features and the gas mileage of a wagon.
However, it was quite expensive and I would have had to purchase a used one as opposed to buying a new Santa Fe.
For the money you can't beat the Santa Fe! It is a luxury SUV at a bargain price IMHO.

The only big drawback to a Hyundi or Kia is the re-sale value, it just isn't there.
I porchased an 06 Spectra5 loaded out with everything including the Cherry on top.
The Car was excellent but was depriciating in value so fast I had to get rid of it.
In 2 years the Car went from a value of $18k to $9k.
I've never had a Car depriciate that bad.
Food for thought if you're the kind of person who trades Cars allot or are buying a Car on credit.
At that kind of depreciation you'll be so upside down you'll never get out from under it.
This is one area Subaru's shine.
They keep their re-sale value very well.

I own a 2003 OB manual 4cyl and really like this wagon. I regularly council friends and other referrals on car purchases. I have been most impressed lately with KIA and especially Hyundai. Build quality and "bang for the buck" (especially low mileage used units) are outstanding. As far as the radio issue is concerned, have the dealer (if you're buying new) remove the factory stereo and give you a reasonable credit then go to an aftermarket shop and select the system that you find best suited.
