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

Review

We needed a safer car for long distance touring with lots of cargo space, capable of towing our pop-up camper. The Outback fills the bill, and after 1100 miles we are impressed with the ride quality, handling, and gas mileage. On our first trip we averaged 28.2 MPG, which is just as good as our smaller 2.3 litre Ford Focus, but we had much more luggage space and comfort.

Favorite Features

AWD, Sport shift, cargo space, top safety ratings by NHTSA and IIHS. Decent highway mileage for an AWD automatic vehicle. Great looks. Standard trip calculator (mileage, temp, range, etc). Horizontal engine for lower center of gravity. 2700 lb tow rating.

Suggested Improvements

Needs a useful center armrest in front. Front cup holders are small and awkward to use.
