2012 Subaru Outback 2.5i PZEV 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl CVT)

Review

For starters it's the first import I've ever owned. We traded in a 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee with a 4.7 V8 that averaged 16.9 mpg no matter how easy you were on the gas pedal. It NEVER got stuck, but the mileage was backbreaking. The Jeep weighs 4700 lbs, and the Outback 3400 lbs, yet the ground clearance is nearly the same and acceleration with the 2.5 feels just as quick if not faster. Over 3 days of mixed driving we're averaging 29 mpg with better handling and tangible money saved at the pump. Interior quality is good, sound insulation very good, with TLC this vehicle will last many years. Looking forward to the first blizzard of 2013!

Favorite Features

Heated seats, mirrors and wiper wells. Legendary AWD.

Suggested Improvements

Dump the 3.6, offer a turbo version.
