First time Subaru owner and have driven about 15,000 miles since January purchase. Getting excellent 28 MPG which is about 40% freeway - 40% mountain - 20% in town. This Outback was rock solid when driving over 250 miles in a bad Calif. coastal storm last winter. Previous car would have been all over the road, especially in the mountains. We have hauled a lot of stuff in the spacious trunk. We've owned a lot of cars but so far this is the best overall vehicle.
Excellent MPG for all wheel drive. Solid handling AWD, comfortable, heated seats, great visibility, smooth quiet ride, large storage space with back seats down, iPod connection in center console, dash board layout, lights under doors, easy to get in and out of car
This model has a poor standard audio system, fog lights do not provide sufficient lighting on dark mountain roads, needs driver seat memory, more options for passenger seat
