Wins the competition but I'd like better
By dusanmal on
2008 Subaru Outback 2.5I 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)
As the title implies we got the car simply because no one does better in this category. Not because we are completely happy with it. We have had long and good experience with 2002 model. Quality apparently still holds. Gas mileage is somewhat better than sticker EPA estimate. Performance is appropriate for the purpose. Comfort is good and slightly better vs. 2002. Design is clean and appropriate for the CAR Wagon, what it should be (Subaru, please remove it from the SUV ranks). Minor ergonomic design errors (location of handbrake and pedals). Major utility design errors (wheels, cargo space).
Favorite Features
Fun to drive AND comfortable. Amazing bad weather performance, thanks for the AWD and handling.
Suggested Improvements
No wheels/tires option for normal people. Should offer 16" alloy wheel option ideal for the purpose of this car. Handling gain from 17" is irrelevant in normal driving. Utility and comfort gains from 16" are huge. Already reduced cargo space is further diminished by too deep under-cargo floor bin.
