2008 Subaru Impreza Outback Sport 4dr Hatchback AWD w/VDC (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


This car handles better than my last car (1999 Passat). It holds the road well and has good power across the RPM range. I would like more cargo space, but knew I was making a compromise for reasons of cost. Car looks sharp in the Outback trim and is well equipped. I wish the driver's seat had adjustable lumbar support and the ability to angle the headrest back. Could also benefit from a telescoping wheel. Overall happy with my purchase 1000 miles into ownership.

Best Features

Styling, road handling (grips like crazy in corners), very good low-end power for a relatively small engine, AWD for the snow, available manual transmission, price is good for the features.

Worst Features

Lumbar support for driver seat, fore/aft adjustment for roof rack rails, leather seat availability, telescoping steering wheel, full-size spare, remote functions in key head instead of fob, six speed manual, larger center arm rest, auto up on both front windows.
