2008 Subaru Outback 2.5I 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)
Review
We purchased an '08 Outback 2.5i. The car feels solid, drives well, and is adequate in interior comfort. The car's engine power is adequate, but not impressive. We enjoy the handling of the car the most, but haven't tested it in snow/ice conditions yet. We've been averaging around 26-27 mpg hwy, which is impressive considering the full time AWD. A knock against the car is that we've had an issue with the passenger side airbag sensor. It turns on and off intermittently. We were told it's a safety design issue for small children. My wife is approx 5'4" 110 pounds and doesn't always set off the sensor. We find this odd, and are researching the issue further.
Favorite Features
Our favorite features are the AWD, gas mileage, auxiliary radio input, and the handling.
Suggested Improvements
The taupe interior is impractical for an all purpose wagon. The lack of steering wheel radio controls for lower models is a real let down. The two shelved glove compartment and ash tray need to be redone/removed because they waste space. Make the ash tray convert to an optional storage compartment.
