2011 Subaru Outback 2.5i Limited 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl CVT)

Review

After my sister test drove the Legacy, i was impressed and had to have one. Needed the space of the Outback, so traded my '10 Altima. Great Seats, backup camera. Gas mileage from MD to FL was 29 MPG at 70+ mph. I don't drive a true city, but getting 23-24 in and around, good for a car that weights 3500 lbs. I have about 2500 miles on it now. Got the Black, yea, i know, FL, hot, humid hard water, but it looks sharp. Car floats into turns, guess due to the weight and the tires. Wonder if a set of Mich. will resolve this?

Best Features

Seats, stereo, auto climate control, backup camera

Worst Features

Reduce the weight a few 100 pounds; the radio RDS can not show the full artist or song title. It is only software and an easy mod to the radio [Altima has this]; drive; seat needs storage netting on back; finally an Intelli key would be great [like the Altima and the RAV4 limited and BMWs].

Nice choice of colour. As to the issue of floating into turns, it's not only the tires you need to blame. The extended length of the car + floaty suspension make the rear of the car prone to get out of control in some situations. That's why Forester is a true real contender to Outback.
