I have to totally agree with your review GAS MILEAGE SUCKS. I've got really upset last Sunday when I read an add from my local Subaru dealer advertising 34 MPG. I am not an agresive driver but for the first 500 miles on my Outback (all of them done on the city), I had less than 17 miles a gallong on average. So last Tuesday I took the car to the dealership and they agreed that this behavior is not normal. However, they have not been able to find a root cause or anything wrong with the car that could cause this poor performance. The service department mentioned that it will take few thousand miles until the car displays its best fuel economy and argue that the winter time can be worst for fuel consumption. Since I like the car I cool down and decided to keep track on my fuel consumption until spring and then the car will be evaluated once again. I certainly hope that things change dramatically at that pointReport it
It should improve. My 2010 Outback Limited 2.5l gets around 23-25 city and on trips has gotten from 31 to 35, but usually around 32. I am impressed with the mileage for the size of the car.Report it
I had a 2006 Outback (2.5i)and the mileage was disappointing until I hit about 20,000 miles then magically it improved dramatically so that I was meeting and sometimes exceeding the EPA sticker. I can't explain it, maybe the engine needed that much breaking in. My mileage did improve with age. I just traded that car in for a brand new OB 3.6R so we'll see what happens with that. I've only put about 50 miles on it so far, I will post details soon. So far I'm loving the extra space.Report it
