2008 Subaru Outback 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
This car has way too many rattles, ticks and squeaks. It's driving me crazy and this is unacceptable for such a new car. The rattles started one week after my purchase. I've been a big fan of Subaru for years but not sure I'd buy another one after this experience. If you're thinking of buying one, definitely rent one for a couple days first. A new car should be quiet for the first few years. The car looks good but kind of too small for a family. Black leather interior is hot hot hot in the summer months. The huge sunroof is cool. The fat leather wrapped wheel feels nice in the hands.
Huge sunroof, black leather interior looks nice and sporty but very hot in the summer.
Figure out a way to tighten things up - get rid of all the rattles. The rattles are ruining an otherwise good car.
