This is our first Subaru, and we've only had it for 3 days now (so take the Reliability rating with a grain of salt - but we hope it stays a 10). Other than a few minor interior fit & finish items that our dealer is taking care of, the 2011 Outback really seems to be a wonderful vehicle. Well thought-out and very comfortable. Great power to MPG compromise on the 4-cyl. We thought we were going out to get a small SUV (CR-V, Rav4, CX7, Sorento, etc.) and instead came home with an Outback. Only negatives so far are placement of A/C vent right by your right hand and very distinct top cutoff of low-beams. That's really not a lot to complain about though. Great features/comfort for the price.
Comfort, legroom, Cargo space, MPG, power for a 4-cyl, interior design, visibility, back-up camera.
Fix the headlight top cutoff on low beams, tone down the brightness of the AC LEDs (very bright at night), provide more adjustment to the A/C vent right by the steering wheel (right hand), add A/C vents to back seat area.
