Our Candian edition model of 3.0 H6 Outback is close to the L.L. Bean model, but doesn't have two-tone leather, it just has the monotone leather and no L.L. Bean logos. Love the cold weather package features. Don't have the Mcintosh stereo, but the upgraded weather band stereo is still pretty decent. Quality throughout and love the power and smoothness from the 6 cylinder engine. This is our second Outback. Our previous one was the 2.5 litre 1998 4- cyl.
Quality, interior, momo steering wheel with real mahogany, smoothness, power and refinement of engine, all-wheel drive, good auto climate control system. Decent gas mileage.
Needs a bit more room for driver and also in the back seat. Tall people beware, headroom is tight. My wife is 5'0", so she has no problem. Get rid of gated shifter, I notice that someone else mentioned that. Not fond of auto door locks when you take the car out of Park.
