2008 Subaru Outback 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)

Review

Traded in a Ridgeline for this vehicle. Couldn't pass up the price. It came certified bumper to bumper for 100K and only had 4K miles on it. Didn't really desire a 5 spd but I do like making the 4 cyl shift when I want it to shift. It has plenty of power. I average 25-26 mpg on about 60/40 highway/city driving. Had to purchase 4 tires because it wouldn't go in the snow. Unusual for a subaru. Why would they put high performance tires on a base wagon sold in the Northeast? Car is nothing special, but it does what it is meant to do. Good second vehicle for going back and forth to work

Favorite Features

Mpg decent. Warranty. Paid for satellite receiver..Seems dependable. Just got a recall though on a "reprogram for the catylic converter".

Suggested Improvements

I notice condensation in the windows during humid weather. Do not put high performance tires on an AWD vehicle sold in the northeast. Clutch pedal needs moved to the left
