2010 Subaru Impreza Outback Sport 4dr Hatchback AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)

Review

This is my 3rd Subaru, I had a 97 Outback and have a 2004 Forester. This new 2010 Outback Sport disappoints. The driver seat height adjuster is ill designed and it has to be pumped up almost every time car is used. It is too long and too high, so contact with it is inadvertently made, thus lowering the seat. The front headrests are raked too far forward and constant head contact is annoying and a distraction while driving. Subaru will not correct these faults. They say "thank you for bringing it to our attention". The silver outboard dash vents reflect in the outside rear view mirrors. I had to paint them flat black. The radio is mediocre.

Favorite Features

Car is peppy and gas mileage as good or better than indicated on the sticker. Big tank gives good range. Handles nicely and engine quiet in city driving.

Suggested Improvements

Address the seat height adjuster lever problem. Revise the rake on the headrests slightly. Eliminate shiny dash areas. Storage compartments needed.
