2008 Subaru Outback 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)

Review

Don't plan on the Subaru folks going out of their way to provide amenities. I have never seen a car with so few compartments for storage. No open area exists to put down your house keys, so I stick mine in the very small ashtray. There is a useless added-cost armrest which makes one lose more storage space. The lighting is red for night driving, so I feel like I'm on the late shift at a nuclear power plant. There are no night lights for the glove compartment or to find the "Door Unlock" lever. The cupholders cannot be taken out for cleaning and are not too versatile. The wind noise is better than in my last car, a Forester, which was very noisy. Outside visibility good.

Favorite Features

Black lower body "cladding" to protect from stones, and cladding on rear bumper. Heated seats. The best visibility for backing than any similar car.

Suggested Improvements

Needs much, much more storage space. Needs less wind noise and motor noise when idling. Needs upper tinting (for sunlight) on front windshield.
