Disappointing
By 13outback on
Vehicle
2013 Subaru Outback 2.5i Limited 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl CVT)
Review
4000 miles on new 2013 limited model. First new car purchase I've disliked. I bought largely based on positive reviews but car has been disappointing. 1. 2.5 engine is inadequate. Granted we live around some hills but this car feels that it is actively protesting every time it goes up hill. 2. Fuel mileage is nowhere near EPA estimates. 3. Auto climate control works poorly 4. Build quality issues. For example there's a nut lock fluid that's obviously been used that is all over the alloy wheels. 5. Cheap materials. Seat leather is very cheap and at 4000 miles is already puckering. I'd look really hard before buying one of these. It's not the quality of a $30K car.
Favorite Features
Utility. Size.
Suggested Improvements
Better fuel economy. Better radio. Better leather. Fix the climate control. Put in a turbo 4 or a diesel.
