My Mistake for Assuming! Caveat Emptor!
By Justin on
Vehicle
2011 Subaru Outback 2.5i Limited 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl CVT)
Review
Took delivery of a new 2011 2.5i Limited Outback today. I am stunned that it didn't come with high definition radio. Their touted upgraded stereo system lacks this basic feature that I've been enjoying in my old Honda Civic for years! It's the equivalent of buying a higher-end model to discover that it comes with crank windows. I can't believe that there is no HD radio! Small things like the lack of a change holder are also annoying. The optional remote engine starter is programed to shut off the engine when the door is opened, so using the remote engine starter requires two separate engine starts to get underway. If I'd understood all of the wear and tear, I'd have passed on it.
Favorite Features
None yet.
Suggested Improvements
Subaru should check the calendar, realize that it's 2010, and add HD radio in the upgraded systems. Add a change holder for tolls and drive-throughs. Having the engine cut off when the door is opened is security overkill.

Man! Do you even know what you're talking about? HD radio? Subarus have Sirius radio, which is your HD satellite radio. Also, Subarus are not about HD radios, they're about high end engineering, just like Porsches (sorry for the comparison, my dear...)

@ss1980 - LOL...there is a huge difference between HD radio and satellite radio. "Sirius" and "XM" are merely vendors of satellite radio.
