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

Review

We rented this car in Oregon for a week and drove it over 700 miles. A lot of mountains and curves, muddy back roads. I found it to be a little too underpowered on hills, very "shifty". Liked the "Sport" mode in the auto tranny. Base engine doesn't hack it. Useless arm rest just like my '97 Outback.

Favorite Features

AWD is nice, Sport mode on transmission. Numerous safety features.

Suggested Improvements

Come on Subaru - make a car with an armrest. I'm an American I like my comfort!
