2011 Subaru Outback 3.6R Limited 4dr Wagon AWD (3.6L 6cyl 5A)
Review
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!
Favorite Features
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.
Suggested Improvements
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.

Oh, I forgot to mention one little gripe. The horn sounds real anemic, like a young goat bleeating. Not something that would attract anyone attention. I wish they put a better soun into that thing.
