When we lived in Boston, we had only
Subarus for over a decade. Moving to
California we had access to a fleet of
used company cars and bought those.
Eventually we had two Mazdas and
intended to replace those. However, the
Outback won me over. The other
replacement vehicle was a Lexus IS300
and in terms of interior comfort and
handling, it is not far off. The power
is much different but the Outback is
quiet and comfortable while providing a
practical alternative to the Lexus. All
of the things I like about Subaru are
still there--and improved.
The front seats are very comfortable
and the carrying area is spacious and
versatile. It handles well and is
adaptable to a great many tasks.
A bit more power would be nice.
Otherwise, it does just what I want it
to do, and does it well and with style.
