2009 Subaru Outback 2.5i Special Edition 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)
Review
I bought the 2009 Outback SE recently and took my wife on a road trip during some very heavy rain. The car handled extremely well on Interstate "heavy rain," rough roads with heavy rain, and incomplete roads. Never had any traction problems. Interior is very comfortable, easy to use (no extra stuff to figure out - simple and straight forward), and the cargo area is very useful. We are expecting our first child soon, and the child seat latch system seems very straight forward.
Favorite Features
Excellent traction in inclement weather, good power for city driving (Houston driving), interior fit/finish, easy-to-use, excellent utility use.
Suggested Improvements
Back seat middle passenger seat belt stretches to the roof - not ideal; would prefer a spare tire that was same as other 4 - it isn't a donut, but it is narrow version on base wheel; fuel economy isn't bad, but it's also not really good - I have averaged 22mpg thus far for a mix of city/hwy
