2009 Subaru Outback 2.5i 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

So far I would say that this car is good but not great. The boxer engine lacks torque. Going up hills requires lots of down shifting. My other cars have way more power and they have similar or smaller engines. The AWD is excellent and is the main reason I bought it. The OEM tires are not that good. They lasted about 18,000 miles before needing replacement. The gas mileage is not good. I get around 23 mph and for an engine that lacks power it adds injury to insult. The build quality is very good. No problems so far and seems tight. I like the way it handles. Very responsive and the steering feels tight. I think many of my issues have been addressed by the 2010 model.


Best Features

AWD, handling, reliability.


Worst Features

Better gas mileage and more powerful engine (yes there are better engines out there and get better mileage).
