2008 Subaru Outback 2.5I Limited 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)
Review
2008 outback we bought new when our 1998 outback head gaskets failed at 135000 miles. We were unsure if another Subaru was in our future but after driving other alternatives we returned to this manufacturer. Very stable sure footed in even the worst conditions and very easy to drive. We are impressed with the design and body integrety.
Favorite Features
under carrage and seams coated for a long life and easy care. Very stable and great in snow and ice. Good visability and noise control adequate storage for items. good brake life, tire life, acceptable bulb life, reasonable Maintenance times although expensive.
Suggested Improvements
Luggage rack rails could be a option ( never use or slightly use rack. Imposes a wind resistence head gaskets failed at 60000 (oil leakage) nearly 1800 to correct on a carefully maintained Subie. Wire to rear hatch broke at the pivot point requiring repair bends too close for wire strand count to forgive the motion quirky remote start. Heat sheild and catalytic noice when cold (one replaced under recall but still some noise) as exhaust routing is tight.
