2011 Subaru Outback 3.6R Limited 4dr Wagon AWD (3.6L 6cyl 5A)


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.

Best Features

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.

Worst Features

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.
