I've driven my 2011 Subaru Outback about 1000 miles so far.
Bought it used with 37K miles.
I was at first hesitant to jump in for this crossover, but decided to give it a shot.
I'd say that CVT transmission and some Subaru quirks are something that I needed to get used to, but once I was acclimated, driving any other car is not fun any more.
I love the spaciousness of the interior, and the performance of the AWD and boxer engine.
You get respectable gas mileage at around 25 miles combined.
Everything the Edmonds / CR experts talk about is spot-on, but nothing that you'd want to worry about. I love driving this thing around my town and can't wait for next road trip!
