I had a high expectations in this car,
coming from a SUV having driven before
a 325ix wagon which was just too small.
I have considered teh A4 wagon, but the
value of the Bean Outback was just not
to beat. Car is within 5,000 miles the
second time in for repair for some
minor electronics problems. Love the
4x4 handling, the build quality and the
versatility for everyday use. The car
does not feel like 212 horses, more
like 150 below 4,000rpm, Subaru has to
work on that. Fuel economy does not
reach factory promises and stays around
20-22mpg. Otherwise I would feel
comfortable to recommend this car as
everyday 4x4 around-town-zipper.
build quality, 4x4 handling, outside
styling, extremely comfortable ride
which does not reach BMW or Audi
levels, but at a price range of about
a little bit more room, the slow
transmission, more torque and
performance adequate for 212hp. Would
be great if the dealers would realize
they are selling a almost luxury
midsize car - the dealers here in teh
area sell the car through inappropriate
sales staff and crummy sales rooms.
