Needed a new vehicle and read tons of reviews as well as drove a lot of crossover type SUVs.
We were impressed with the Subaru's safety ratings and consumer reviews so we bought this 2013 Outback.
We love it!
Gas mileage is awesome.
34.2 on highway so far and around 24 in city and it's not broke in as yet. Only downsides: the beige cloth seats get dirty easily so get seat covers ASAP; air conditioning is a bit hard to regulate. It's roomy and comfy inside.
I have a horrid back and find that I'm not getting as stiff and achy after riding in this for long periods of time.
We're very impressed with Subaru!
Owned a Honda Accord before.
Roomy inside and comfortable seats.
Great gas mileage.
Looks and drives great.
Wish the air conditioning had better control.
Seems like I'm always cold.
The light color seats look great but seem to get dirty easily.
Bought cheap covers for front seats and am looking to buy the matching ones for the back.
It would never withstand children/dogs.
However, the black interior seemed claustrophobic to me so
didn't want those.
