2008 Subaru Outback 2.5I Limited 4dr Wagon AWD w/VDC (2.5L 4cyl 4A)
Review
Was replacing 2000 Explorer with 141K miles, and tired of the poor gas mileage. Looked at every crossover and small truck SUV available, and found the Outback to be the best combination of sensible size/mileage and cargo capacity. We ski and have a place in Durango, CO so we needed AWD. Very satisfied with the Outback - fit and finish are excellent, ride is superb, decent handling, 170 HP flat four is definitely adequate for us, mileage has consistently been 25 MPG. Interior is nice looking and functional - not the weird and techno-ugly stuff we've seen in other vehicles. Great driver's seat (the 2000 Explorer had the worst!), sound system is excellent.
Favorite Features
Ride, handling, full time AWD, looks great, nice interior, good gas mileage, like the underfloor storage and storage bins in rear side panels, VDC and traction control.
Suggested Improvements
Larger glove box, needs auto-locking doors when car is in motion, XM satellite radio display needs smaller characters so more text is displayed, power passenger seat with adjustable lumbar needed in Limited model (comes with LL Bean and XT).
