I like my Outback, but I wish it had
more power for the price. Gas
mileage is only average - maybe 23
mpg, and that's not lead footing it
either. Mine developed several
interior rattles after just 10,000
gentle highway and around town
miles. It's a decent car, hauls a lot
of gear, but I won't buy another until
they boost the power of the 4 cylinder
because there's no way I'll pay $28K -
$30K for the H6! (Might as well get a
used XC70 or a nicer new Passat
4motion for that price...)
Hauls a lot of gear. Good handling.
Optional turbo 4 cylinder - why not a
WRX performance version of the
Outback? Needs at least 200hp. Mono-
tone paint would be nice - the current
two tone paint jobs look soooo 1970's.
Split fold down rear seatbacks are
nice, but they don't fold flat.
