I had my Outback for five months.
On the 28th of February I left Chicago, the day before the snow hit, for San Diego, so I missed the big snow.
With our 100 lb Golden Retriever on a 6000 mile trip, the Outback not only gave us 29 to 30 miles per gallon at high speeds, it did it comfortably,
This car handled the steep mountain roads with ease.
It could use more power, but at no time did I feel compromised.
You do forgett that it is a four cylinder, the cvt is great.
The economy, cvt trans, all wheel drive, comfort
cargo space, fit and finish, Subaru's abillity to respond to customer complaints and correct them.
The radio needs an upgrade, it could use more power without harming the economy, the blower motor is too loud at high speed, maybe include rear heater vents.
