Recently purchased, 7/25/09. First Subaru and AWD vehicle. Wanted an Outback due to New England weathers and having cargo room for my 2 Labs. Really grips the road. No snow yet obviously but it does great in heavy rain. Stereo is supposedly premium: speakers seem to rattle a little if you really turn it up.
Feels very stable, great handling. 4 cyl is enough power for me! Huge cargo space, 6 CD changer and AUX jack, huge sunroof. I'm sure I will love the heated seats come winter.
Stereo to handle bass better. IPOD integration / Bluetooth would have been nice.
