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

Review

We bought our car new 3 years ago. Although not a head turner, it looked sturdy and had better gas mileage than a SUV. Some standard features a plus. Steady on the road and safe in snow/rain. Poor built quality... Cheap cabin materials. The engine went out at 38000 miles and it took 2 weeks to repair shorted cable in the engine block... I was very disappointed with it this week - took it to the dealer to have the heat shield repaired - not covered by warranty, although the dealer said every Outback gets this problem at our mileage (49000). Door handle broke - not covered. The handle actually fell out...

Favorite Features

All wheel drive, roomy.

Suggested Improvements

Better built quality. A bit more power would be a plus. I would not buy another subaru... As soon as my extended warranty is over, will trade it in.
