After months of reading the reviews on Edmunds my parents had enough and bought the Outback without my knowledge. I was mad for all of a second. I truly loved this car. Purchased at 135,000 I took it to 180,000 without a single problem be for it was murdered in a hit and run accident. Gas milage averaged 23 mpg's consistently. I had the joy of taking it to the snow ALOT, and not a single problem. If this car didn't get hit I would be giving it to my kids (I'm 21). A great first car the roof racks are great for surfboards, the seats lay flat for the snowboards, Mt. Bikes, Skimboards, dogs, and naps if you lay diagonally. If you have the chance this is a great first car!
Gas milage, Versatility, AWD, Reliability, Price, Ability to go anywhere, Hood scoop (that does nothing).
A little more speed would be great for fun and getting on the freeways in L.A. Other than that absolutely nothing.
Bought used with 37,000 miles, left rear wheel bearings have been replaced twice. The Subaru dealer did not change belts as specified in the user's manual. Nonetheless, the car has done well in Minnesota winter driving. Some rust left rear. Intermittent warning light Airbags
My third Subaru. The all wheel drive is a
dream. If you mess up and go around a
corner too fast in the rain, this car holds on to
the ground like it has CLAWS. Short of
recklessness, it just does not skid. We bought
it used with 30K miles and have put 15K more
on it. It has only had routine maintainance
(includidng new belts) and it has never
faltered. With it's styling my friends thought it
was new, not six years old! I guess that's
good, because I'll be driving it for many more
years. A little too much road noise is it's only

petrified to drive in the snow! What

ALL WHEEL DRIVE!!!!!!! And a very

The wheel covers are a disaster.
After replacing them twice, i bought a
