Our family has had at least one Subaru in our fleet for more than a decade. The 2007 basic Outback features a nice combination of performance, comfort,and versatility. The fact that Subarus feature AWD, solid reliability, and good resale value keep us coming back. Subaru also partners with Chase Bank to bring you a Subaru credit card that makes purchasing and maintaining your Subaru less financially burdensome. Subaru continues to move forward with quality and design improvements. I wouldn't say the 07 Outback deserves to be called "luxurious", but it is not far deserving that moniker. Price of this car goes up quickly with the addition of creature comforts.

OEM tires (Potenzas) are not great, especially in ice and snow. Disappointing tire choice for a company that sells primarily in snow belt areas. Standard shift gearing ratio makes fifth gear feel much like you need a sixth gear, especially at expressway speeds. "Howling" wind noise in heavy winds.
