2009 Subaru Outback 3.0R Limited 4dr Wagon AWD (3.0L 6cyl 5A)

Review

Initially we loved it. Two radio replacements later along with faulty a/c controls, expensive x-mission repair, leaking sun roof (all covered by warranty) have left us questioning keeping this vehicle for 10+ years like we planned. So far $5k worth repairs on a 1.5 yr. Old vehicle does not bode well for Post warranty ownership. Will trade for a Ford fusion. We expected much more from a $30k vehicle. Will have a bad taste in my mouth for Subaru for a while. Gillman San Antonio could have done better also.

Favorite Features

Nice solid feel, high ground clearance, feels "stout". Extremely good ad campaign. On the stuff that matters like "the car" not so many favorite features.

Suggested Improvements

fix radio problems, fix mechanical problems, train technicians at Gillman San Antonio better, improve their customer service skills
