We researched numerous cars and had focused on the Honda CR-V or Toyota RAV-4. We then hear about the Subaru Forester and test drove that great vehicle. But the Outback jumped into our possibilities and offered the best overall vehicle flexibility. The expressway ride and cool features/appearance sold us. The HK sound system is great and our iPod came to life like never before. After we brought this home, we discovered how many friends have owned Outbacks for years and will never switch to another vehicle. We are now part of the family of happy Outback owners. It is the perfect vehicle for us.
Heated seats, rear view mirrors, windshield wipers. Love the huge sun roof and ease of operation. The front cockpit is intuitive and very functional, while extremely comfortable. The rear seats will be adequate for our grandkids. The cargo room with the rear seats down is great.
It is too early to tell, but right now it is perfect for us. This vehicle has everything we need/want and the controls are easy to reach and operate. All that is missing is the trailer hitch to tow my Harley. That's coming next week.
