2011 Subaru Outback 3.6R Limited 4dr Wagon AWD (3.6L 6cyl 5A) 3.6R Limited 4dr Wagon AWD (3.6L 6cyl 5A)
I purchased a 2011 Outback Premium new in May, 2011. It now has 52,000 mostly trouble free miles. The only problem was with a power window that would get stuck and the dealer had a difficult time finding the cause. Other than that, it's been very reliable. We live in a ski resort at 8,000 feet and the extra power from the six cylinder engine is well worth it. Even with the bigger engine, we are getting over 25 mpg with a combination of highway and town driving. Styling is subjective, but I think both the exterior and interior are attractive. We have a 100 pound golden retriever who loves riding in the back. I wish it had a little more leg room in front and rear, but it's adequate.
The Outback is a good road car. I have not had any problems with the steering wheel others have complained about. This car is great in the snow. We put on snow tires in the winter and as long as there's less than 8 inches of powder on the ground, it goes anywhere. The engine is smooth and plenty powerful, and is well suited to the 5 speed transmission. I previously had a Forrester with the 4 cylinder engine and 4 speed transmission, and it was underpowered. I don't know how the Outback with the same 4 cylinder engine would perform. I'd recommend a thorough road test first. The car handles well, especially on the highway. I personally like the styling.
This is the first car I've owned in decades that requires adding oil between routine oil changes. I have to add a quart about every 3000 miles. I understand that is normal with these boxer engines. The dealer can't explain why, just that they all use oil. It doesn't burn oil or drip oil, so I don't know where it goes. Overall, this is a great car and I'm very satisfied with it.

Love this with the 3.6 plenty of power with descent gas mileage 22 combines for 18,000 miles. My only complaint was the soft ride and poor handling. I put KYB gas shock on it and now it handles great and rides nice and firm. (watchout Cayennes) We have taking this car on the LA to Mammoth trek many times to go skiing and have needed the AWD plenty of times and it works great. We can fit 4 adults and a dog for a weekend of skiing if we put the skis and boards on the roof. Ingenious rack system.
Seat Comfort and leg room front and rear, Reclining rear seats, Great interior room for its size. Roof racks, Powerful 3.6,
Poor handling from the factory and too soft a ride. KYB gas shocks has solved my problem. USB to radio does not control my droid. 6 speed auto tranny

I bought a Forester 15 months ago when I moved to 8000 feet elevation. The Forester performed flawlessly through 55 feet of snow in a record winter. But, it's four cylinder engine and four speed transmission struggled at this elevation, especially in hilly terrain. And, it was just a bit too small. Since we were otherwise very satisfied, we traded it on an Outback with the 3.6 engine and 5 speed automatic. After 18,000 miles, we traded it for $2500 less than we paid for it and still got a good discount on the Outback. What a difference. The Outback has plenty of power and leg room. The Limited has very nice features. It's a good value compared to similar crossover vehicles.
Engine and transmission are well matched. Interior finish is better than expected for a car of this price. The AWD is great, whether you need it or not. It's got great traction and a very tight turning radius. In my opinion, it's one of the best looking crossovers. The selling dealer (Sierra in Monrovia, CA) threw in the free maintenance while under warranty which is a convenience.
The only problem we've had is a driver's window that won't go up without stopping several times. It goes up a few inches and stops. That means you have to repeatedly press the switch. Two trips to the dealership have not resulted in a repair. We're ready to go to another dealer for warranty service.
My wife and I are the proud new owners of a 2011 Outback Limited 3.6R. We got it three weeks ago because we were expecting. Baby boy was born last week. We came down to two choices: The Ford Explorer and the Outback. After several test drives in each my wife picked the one I was hoping for. The Explorer was a little to big and while the My Ford touch interface is cool all I could see was something that would break in a year. We live in a city so while you want a good size vehicle you have to be aware that it can be a problem when looking for a place to park and when you trying to get through traffic. It has significantly more room than the other crossovers. Very Happy so far.
Size, Size, Size. The all wheel drive is nice and the interior is very well done. Nice but not over the top. Good driving position and excellent power from the flat six.
Fuel economy is not the best in the world. Blue tooth mic could be a little better.
Great car except for an occasional hard down shift from the five speed automatic. Dealer and Subaru say they know about the issue, but claim it is operating as designed. Mileage is about 28 on highway and 20 in town. 3.6 6 cyl has OK pickup, but not as good at the turbo outback we traded in. If they would fix the transmission issue, the par would be perfect.
Space, smooth ride, seats and the way it drives.
Fix the shifting problem. After slowing down to about 15 mph, it feels like someone has hit you from the rear when you gently press on the gas. If Subaru can fix this problem (they say all outback 3.6 cars do this) I would never buy anything else. If this can't be corrected, I will most likely purchase something else as I am getting tired of passengers asking me "what is wrong with this car?". This is our 5th Subaru, but may be the last if the problem is uncorrectable.
If you are reading this, you are probably doing research. I have already put 1,000+ miles on my 2011 Outback and I can honestly say that it has been nothing but a pleasure. I used to own a 2000 Accord, but needed to upgrade for my growing family. We recently took it for a road trip from NYC to Lake George Village and the ride was firm and comfortable and the cargo space was sufficient. The only downside is the mp3 connection, which does not allow you to change songs. One other thing, I notice that the driver's side of the car rides lower than the passenger side. After analyzing the problem, I discovered it was all the cash in my pocket that I saved. Ha! Unbelieveable bargain!
Quiet interior (from those gheto blasting low riders), comfortable leather seats, easy to navigate dashboard, class leading 2nd row space (cavernous for a toddler), deep and wide cargo area (lost a set of clubs somewhere inside), AWD (can't wait for winer), Harmon Kardon speakers (blasting podcasts/music/stereo), solid leather wrapped steering wheel, cargo nooks galore, roof rack (not yet used but will), handling/suspension (absorbs nasty NYC potholes with ease), power (can easily get up to speed), visibility (I see everything-even unmarked police cruisers!) and reliability (of course time will be the judge).
Allow the steering wheel dials the ability to change songs from a connected mp3 player. Also, make space for a 17" wheel in the spare tire nook. Seriously, I looked at all the competition, drove tons of them over a one-year period, and am 100% happy with my purchase.
I purchased a 2010 Forester in June, 2010 when a job changed forced a move to the Eastern Sierras and an elevation of 8000 feet. The Forester was a great car that handled the snow without any problems. But, it was underpowered at this elevation and too small for someone who's 6'3" and 260 pounds. So, we traded it in on a 2011 Outback 3.6 Limited. No regrets at all. The 6 cylinder is both smooth and powerful, and the 5 speed transmission is much better than the 4 speed in the Forester. It's got plenty of room, front and back. The only car I've owned that's as comfortable was an Infiniti M35. This is a great road car. If it's as reliable as the Forester was in 18,000 miles, I'm happy.
Smooth and powerful engine nicely matched tot he 5 speed automatic transmission. Fit and finish are very good for a car in this price range. I don't generally like the appearance of SUV's and in the past have not thought much of Subaru's styling, but I find this to be a very attractive car. When we bought our first Subaru a year ago the salesman said the brand has tremendous customer loyalty and a high rate of replacing a Subaru with another one. After owning two, I can understand why. And, they hold their value. I owned the Forester one year, and put on 18,000 miles. I got $1500 less than I paid for it on a trade in.
None so far.
Finally found guts to get rid of my "Thirsty Elephant on hormones" - 2006 Jeep Commander. Both me and my wife love everythng about Outback and the 3.6 really moves it. Leather quality comparable only to Infinity. Everything is where it is expected to be. My only couple of little gripes are: (1) Can't raise the back glass (need to pop the entire door) which I find pretty irritating especially if you need to bring a few 10 ft 2x4's from Home Depot. (2) Also, it is strange that only driver's side mirror has one-touch up feature and you need to hold the button full time to close the passenger windor. But otherwise, it is a blast to drive. No regrets whatsoever. Get a 3.6R for sure!
Loads and loads of great features. 8" GPS is amazing and very functional. Awesome sound system. Leather quality is top notch. Mileage is within limits stated in specs.
1. Improve availability of black leather with exterior paint combinations. Somehow more exterior colors are available with "light brown" (which I call white for all practical purposes) leather. Who needs white leather? 2. Would be real nice if back lift gate window would pop up without opening the whole back door. 3. Strange that one-touch window up is only available on driver's but not on passenger side. 4. Subaru decided not to go with the crowd and that "on-off" button. Old-fashion ignition switch is just fine by me.
I purchased a 2011 Outback Limited with the 3.6R engine for my wife. (Everything except Nav) After driving it from Maine to Oklahoma (home), I had to have my own Outback so I sold my 2010 Maxima and purchased another 2011 Outback Limited with the 3.6R engine except this time with nav. I frequently refer to my outbacks as Honda Accords with AWD, however much more practical. You can haul and carry a lot of stuff home from Lowe's. I have several suggestions for improvement (explained later) and have actually conveyed them to Subaru. (Probably will fall on deaf ears though, however I did receive a nice response.) Great vehicle and you can't go wrong.
Looks, practical, economical, smooth, reliable. As a whole and considering all factors, it is an outstanding vehicle that is very hard to beat.
OK, now for my big bitch. Do not waste your money on the Outback's navigation system. It is a three disc system that is definitely second class and would be better suited for a Yugo. I love having to change disc's between Illinois/Indiana and Oklahoma/New Mexico and remembering in the state you are traveling in prior to selecting any locations. . If you have not used/owned Acura's or Infinity's Navigation system with traffic & weather, you may not find it as bad as I do. Outside drivers side mirror needs to be tinted, and electric lift gate option would be very nice as well as programable seats. However: that navigation system has to go!!!!
Starting a new family, I had to give up my compact and this was the best choice for us. Great power, spacious interior (key for car seats), cargo room, AWD, and reasonable fuel economy. Primarily looked at a Murano which was more luxurious, but a bit smaller cargo-wise and you need to run it on premium so went with the Subaru. After about 3k miles I'm glad we did. It's extremely comfortable on the roads and was a lifesaver in the recent snowstorms. It doesn't handle as well as the cars I'm used to, but I didn't expect super crisp handling going into a larger vehicle. I wish some of the tech was more up to date, but it's good enough for our needs and should serve us well.
VTD AWD, Boxer 6, reclining rear seatback, tonneau cover storage, ride height, rearview camera in the rearview mirror
Head unit needs to be better, the HK system is ok, but could be improved, and a power liftgate would be a nice convenience. Can't think of anything else!
I have driven my OB 1200 miles. The build date was 10/10 and it came with Conti ProContact tires. In mixed city/highway driving, I've been averaging 22 mph. I previously drove a Lexus GS300. I am very happy with the ride, handling, and features of the OB. When I took my first test drive of an OB last summer, I didn't like it and took it off my list, but I kept coming back to it and liked it better after each test drive. After my fourth test drive, I was sold. After buying the OB and getting to know it even better, I can say that the OB has exceeded my expectations and is an awesome car for its class.
Overall engineering, good ride and handling, driver seat comfort, paddle shifters, puddle lights, interior/cargo space, quiet interior, plenty of headroom, and good rear visibility (with and without backup camera).
Things I would like to see added or changed to make the OB even more appealing to me would be a more modern navigation system (shouldn't need to use multiple discs nowadays for complete coverage of the US), power lift gate, memory seats, a subwoofer with the HK audio system, and a large, center mounted speedometer. And, get rid of the styling creases in the hood.
Engine started to chug or mis-fire during a recent winter trip across the northern states (2,000 miles round trip). The problem appears to be related to snow intake as the problem only surfaces when driving during a snow storm or in blowing snow. I've taken it to two dealers and they have not resolved. Problem is that the car "chugged" abruptly about 30 times during four separate snow events, so the "cause and effect" seems very obvious to me. Not gasoline related. Dealer ruled out transmission. Serious enough "chugging" to make the kids think we were about to break down. There is something going on with a sensor or the engine that has yet to manifest as a code, but it's coming.
Interior comfort; snow handling (with Blizzaks); remote engine start; ride comfort; luggage space for smaller SUV; paddle shifting the transmission in the mountains.
The display screen and functions for the radio, navigation, and media are not intuitive and seem like 10 year old technology. Navigation system isn't fully functional while moving, so even a passenger can't input a new destination. Have to change navigation DVD disks as you go across the country. The screen display on the radio is dated. The cross bars on the roof rack need to be more adjustable with regard to spacing (It's the first vehicle for which I had to drill new holes in my Thule to get it to fit because the roof rack won't adjust very much). Low headlights don't illuminate well on hilly roads.
owned '97, '05 outbacks. 2011 version much improved in interior space, comfort seating and ergonomics. 3.6 engine is needed for highway; gas mileage much better than listed. Can't throw the new car around like the older models, miss the weather band radio and engine block heater. Back-up video takes time to get used to but worth it;
ohc cam six is a gem, quiet, responsive, predictable and smooth. 6 speed would be trick but alas not offered. Subie goes mainstream with this model.
Rear suspension needs improving-rear wheels spend alot of time in the air; Replaced water temp with a gauge, big plastic pan over the engine; gas flow meter too low on dash; wiperstalk hidden by steering wheel; audio control overkill.
Just bought new 3.6r limited, very impressed. Wife has an '07 rav4 6 cylinderlimited, but I chose ob as need to climb our snow/ice mountain to home in north central pa. Slid down backwards in rav4 3 times last year. Computer shuts down power when wheels spin. Ob leather seats are the most comfortable I've ever had, ride is unbelievable (a ride on a cloud) for a crossover. Toyota much stiffer and much louder inside- cannot talk front to rear on a trip. Mileage pretty good, acceleration great. Fit and finish good. Exterior lines cool, interior plush and techie. No steering shimmy and my dealership has never seen any. I am very happy with ob indeed.
Great suspension (fantastic ride for the class), seats, handling, power, tech (e.g. back up camera in rear view mirror, trip calculators, HK stereo, etc)
Would cvt give a fer mpg more (averaging 20 hwy and city with only 500 miles on vehicle)
Traded old Vo XC-70 for this top of line Outback. Safety, value and fun ride were criteria, not to mention high Consumer Rating (thanks CR and Edmunds). Read all 200+ reviews before deciding on 3.6R Limited (thank you all, especially 3.6R people who were right on the mark). The 3.6R has great get up and go. Looking forward to driving in New England this winter. Care drives like a luxury SUV, nimble and elegant, that is when grandma lets her old man (not yet 60) take "Stormy" for a ride (took delivery day Hurricane Earl hit Cape Cod).
Harmon-Kardon 6 CD sound system is best we've ever had (to quote from a Who song) and Blue Tooth is cool feature for states strict about cell use. 25 MPG after 5,000 miles. Night panel lights well done, Great ergometrics this model. Considered Forrester Touring but needed more room for wife/kid stuf
Horn sound is lame
My wife and I used to hate Outbacks. (We have driven in one on several occasions for approximately 400 miles on at least 5 occasions). In fact, we refused to test drive this one for a while until I convinced her to give it a try. Instead, we were looking at the 2010 Passat Wagon and liked how that one handled and felt the engine had enough power. I also disagree with Edmunds; the ride is not "doughy" at all. I have never been in a wagon at this price point that has performed this well on the road. The V6 is quite zippy and I routinely dodge around "sportier" vehicles downtown with just myself in tow. The interior is much improved over the last generation and is far more comfortable.
1) Great value for price point 2) zippy V6 3) excellent handling and agility 4) good torque at mid-speed 5) more usable back area compared to prior generations (can fit 150 pounds of dog more comfortably now) 6) good amount of interior space for both storage and head space 7) power- assisted brakes
1) MPG gauge is useless 2) HVAC vents in back area 3) better low-speed torque (it's awesome above 20 mph)
I've only had it a short time. I'm looking forward to taking a trip with it. I had an Impala before and had it for 8 years. I really liked it. But not as much as I like my outback. I compared and test drove a lot of other cars before I bought our outback. I read al lot of reviews and none compared. I always came back to this one.
I love driving it. It is easy to see out of and park.
It needs to have lumbar support for the passenger. The only other things that would be great would be heads up display and cooled seats.
At the time I bought my outback there weren't any real good reviews for the 3.6, most were for the 2.5 so I was hesitant. However after 4500 miles I am really glad I got the bigger engine! The extra power is awesome and really performs quite well! I also disagree with the review stating that the ride is "doughy" and lacks response. Its a wagon, not a rally car! So far I have gotten between 22 and 24 miles per gallon and on the highway actually get around 26! The upgraded stereo system is nice, and for the most part my bluetooth has worked really well. This is a great trip car! Have been on several road trips already and have put 4500 miles on the car in three months!
Engine, All wheel drive, Stereo system w/ipod plug in, the auto dimming mirror is really nice, never had one of those, and the puddle lights look cool and are also really functional. Reclining back seats are nice for rear passengers as well. I actually like the MPG gauge.
Rear AC vents, Nav system is very picky (please upgrade subaru!), need to allow passengers to input destination as well. I like the push-button emergency brake for hills when parking and such but not sure how it would be if my brakes went out.
Seats are comfortable and its easy to find a great seating position. Leather seems of good, but not great, quality. Cabin reasonably quiet. The ride is very busy, harsh even, really jiggly on uneven pavement. Lots of road feel transmitted back into the steering wheel, and increasing over time so that I now have the oscillation problem. Front end makes a decent clunking sound anytime I'm turning into a driveway at anything other than a crawl. The real downside on mine is the 5-spd AT. a shuddering, engine lugging abomination at low rpm. Operation of all the above described as normal. The engine is about the best feature of the car smooth, quiet and great acceleration.
The engine. The seating in terms of finding a comfortable driving position. Power lumbar adjustment is great. Climate control works well. Stereo is adequate.
More initial problems than any new car purchased in last 32 years. Should be an embarrassment to Subaru. Get rid of the steering wheel oscillation. There must be some fundamental design flaw with this vehicle given the number of people reporting issues, myself included.
My realistic, not wide eyed or wishful rating, at 3000 mile overall grade is an A-. If it had more gauges, an intermittently working blue tooth, and did not require me to agree to terms to see the map every time I start to drive the car, it would have been the best car I have ever had in 45 years, and rated an A+. At an out the door price of $37,988 for the limited 3.6R, you cannot beat it. Subaru has the opportunity to be the best practical and cost effective crossover ever made with a few changes. Subaru, get with it and prosper! Before this, I never even considered a Subaru, I did not even know where it was made.
Handling, comfort,power, gas mileage (21.3), turning radius, head and leg room, backup camera. Out the door price $37,988. Have not had opportunity to drive in snow yet.
Needs gauges for engine temperature, battery voltage, tire pressure. Get rid of useless mpg meter. Problem with bluetooth. Only works when it wants to. Nuisance to have to agree to terms every time you start car. I have an electronic manufacturing business myself, so I know they can do it.
Up-date to my 7/28 review. Subaru came out with a TSB for the steering wheel shake finally which included new front and rear bushings, new steering wheel with dampener, new mount for the trans and a bunch of other parts. Car was at dealer for 2 days for the repair. It drives a lot better now without the shake however the steering wheel vibrates above 70 mph., kind of like operating a power tool. Called dealer and told him the problem and was told nothing more they can do. Car rides well, plenty of power, comfortable, and fun to drive as long as you stay below 70. Envy those of you without the shake or vibration. For me, my first and last Subaru.
Power, comfort, decent mpg avg. 24 mpg for first 1,000 miles.
Subaru should get their heads out of their butts and get this problem fixed and quit selling known faulty cars until it is.
I was looking for a smaller SUV with better gas mileage than our current Honda Pilot (which we loved), but wanted plenty of cargo space. Narrowed down to the Chevy Equinox and Subaru Outback. Both were good, but the OB had better reputation for quality. I wanted the 4 cylinder for the gas mileage, but my wife convinced me to get the 6 cylinder for better performance. I'm glad I did. The 6 cylinder has a lot of zip for the freeway, is a lot quieter than the 4 cylinder and, frankly, is a lot of fun to drive (after 7 years with the Pilot). Gas mileage is good. I commute from the suburbs and average slightly over 23 mpg. Plenty of cargo space. Good lucking. Really well designed.
Cargo space. Upgraded speakers and XM radio. Bluetooth. Remote start. (Really like this for hot or cold days.) Homelink (Should be standard.) Zippiness with 6 cylinder engine. Overall quality.
There's no a/c vents in the back seat. This was almost a deal-killer for us in Georgia, but the climate control system is pretty good and the remote start helps cool the car before we get in. It would be nice to have a few more storage compartments and better cup holders for the back seat door,
Did a lot or research and test driving, and found the Outback met all my needs as far as comfort, performance,style and supposedly build quality. Shortly after delivery noticed a vibration/shake in the steering wheel at various speeds. Took back to the dealer and they road forced balanced the tires and said that would take care of the problem. It didn't and made it worse at highway speed. Back to the dealer, told them that problem was still there and even worse, car left with them for more testing. Did some research and found numerous complaints about this on NHTSA and on a Subaru Outback forum. I called Subaru and was told that they were aware of problem but as yet had no fix.
Comfortable seats, good stereo, good performance.
Should have corrected steering problem for the 2010 models before releasing the 2011's with the same problem. First and last Subaru unless they can correct steering. Will update if and when car gets fixed. 500 miles on the car and 2 trips to the shop. Suggest you wait for a fix before buying.
Replaced wife's 2000 Toyota 4Runner. New 4Runner is too big for her & too expensive for me. Outback is a big improvement over 4Runner: much more stable, much faster, gets better MPG, and has a great interior with all the gadgets (Limited). Granted, we didn't use full capabilities of truck- based 4Runner's 4WD. We are really impressed with the Outback not like the 1987 wagon I had! Very quiet & stable at highway speed. 6 cyl is fast, getting ~20 mpg overall after 600 miles of mixed driving. No evidence of front end "shimmy" some 2010 Outback owners reported. Really impressed so far.
6 cyl; expected reliability; AWD; overall size & capacity; decent MPG; loaded interior
Diesel engine; hire an Audi designer for exterior--not the best-looking Subaru or wagon on the market; use a real manual emergency brake--it's actually useful for emergencies (and donuts in snow)
Got one for my wife and she is extremely happy. We opted for the Limited with pretty much everything but NAV. I test drove both engines and went with the 3.6R without hesitation. I cant wait to try out this winter at our mountain house.
AWD, interior size, rear view LCD, leather, bluetooth, remote start, audio speakers
Read 195 reviews for 2020 model before baying. Just got 2011 3.6R limited a few days ago. During test drive on freeway, had to slam on brakes. Stopped great, no swerving. Did not notice problem with passenger seat, or difficulty of closing hatchback as others reported in '10 model. V6 engine only way to go. No special financing or rebates-too new. Will write more after winter and drive in snow.
Comfort, space, looks, price, quiet ride, powerful, good visibility, adequate turning radius. Have not had chance to see how navigation works yet. Swing in side mirrors now on '11 model. MSRP of $36,090 (loaded), out the door $37,977.82. Only two V6 Limited on lot. Wait for one.
Still have useless miles per gallon gauge. Needs meaningful info such as engine temperature, tire pressure readings, and battery voltage. Could not get homelink to work on Liftmaster garage door opener. But could not do it with wife's Mercedes either, both times even had dealer come and try.
Going from the 2007 2.5 turbo to the 2011 3.6R was a great deal. The turbo was fun and got good mileage (avg 22 mpg). Nice to go from Super unleaded to regular, saves $.30 a gallon. At just over 800 miles avg mpg for the 3.6R is just over 23. Great for regular gas. Don't be fooled the 3.6R (256 hp) has guts equal to the turbo (243 hp). Also no timing belt in the 3.6R to replace at 105,000, as it is chain driven cam. Subaru has done amazing changes in 4 years time with everything - styling, trim, materials - everything. We plan on keeping this Subaru for probably, at least 6-7 years. Look at Subaru they are fantastic vehicles.
Ours is the 3.6R Outback Limited w/nav and moonroof. We can't just list features as it the whole car that makes this version so great. This is one car even the salesman can love and it shows.
Not much - memory seat adjustments, FULL SIZE spare, weather band radio in main radio, 2.5 engine with chain driven cam instead of timing belt. Belt change at 105,000 miles costs from $600 to over $1,200 depending on version of 4 cylinder engine and dealer location. Still a fantastic car for the $.
We were looking for an AWD/4WD vehicle to replace our rear wheel drive sedan. We have driven several Hondas over the years and were considering the Crosstour. We really wanted to like it but just didn't. It was comfortable, but didn't handle well and didn't have a lot of power even though it had a V6. Hey, if I'm going to give up the gas mileage for the bigger engine, I want some guts in return! We also tried the Venza but were unimpressed. Then we drove the OB. Wow, it was great. Handled well, plenty of zip, nice fit and finish, comfortable, and roomy. Great visibility. High reliability by consumer groups. I can see why Subie owners are so loyal now that I own one! Consider it.
Engine response, handling, overall comfort. Bluetooth is easy and works great. Man, there's a lot of room. Great utility.
Trade the fuel economy gauge for one that is more engine critical. Make the Homelink/compass rear-view mirror standard on the Limited. I prefer a normal emergency brake over the button on the dash. How about importing the diesel.
