Very nice car-- get the 5 spd XT!
By georg on
Vehicle
2008 Subaru Outback 2.5 XT Limited 4dr Wagon AWD w/VDC (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
Review
This is our second Outback 2.5 5spd. Our first qas a 2006 Limited 2.5 5 spd that had a persistent air conditioner interior leak that we rolled over in at 45 mph and walked away fine. We replaced it with our current vehicle because it has the VDC. This Outback is great; the fit and finish is perfect. The XT should be purchased with the 5spd; the power of the engine in Sport# and the delayed shifting is a great experience.
Favorite Features
XT with the 5spd. The comfortable seats; the large sunroof. Sure-footed in dirt, rain and snow. fuel economy.
Suggested Improvements
LATCH in the middle back seat; the car seat cannot be placed in the middle according the owner's manual. With a car seat in the rear, the pass seat is very forward position. Synchronized Reverse: sometimes getting into R can be hard, it could just be the short shifter. The lack of Bluetooth.
