I purchased this after owning a Acura, Honda & Toyota - comparatively, the performance responsiveness is lacking in the Outback & it guzzles premium gas. Brakes and AC had to be replaced already & the much-vaunted AWD doesnt seem to make much difference on the snow covered roads of Canada - still slip & slide all over. I would definitely not buy another... back to Honda or Toyota for me.
Very comfortable driver seat, good trunk space
Engine responsiveness sluggish, too expensive to operate & maintain, visibility of radio/CD poor in sunlight
