2007 Subaru Outback 2.5i Basic 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Subaru, like all other cars are mechanical beings. Some sweet some sour characteristics. Four wheel drive for the price they charge is unbeatable but steering is hard at low speeds. Overall it is a fine piece of transportation. The seats are uncomfortable after 15 minutes. The transmission is annoying because of lag when under hard acceleration and then rockets off when it catches up. Center console is useless because it does not act as an arm rest and you have to park the car to find anything in it and it's small. Not enough storage space for personal items. Subaru needs to control their dealers so they don't try to fix your car when it isn't broke. That is the worst thing about it!!

Best Features

Four wheel drive, quality of construction, reliability, handling on curves and bad weather conditions and high ground clearance.

Worst Features

Put in a maintenance free battery. Raise the height from the floor to the roof by at least 6". Make the seats wider, flatter and longer. Do away with hood prop stick. Increase inside storage. Make CVT standard on all models. Improve MPG. Make Diesel Engines available in US. Improve Dealerships.
