2013 Subaru Outback 2.5i 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl CVT)

Review

Wish I could love my Subaru like the commercials all tout but they didn't have the lemon I have. I drive a lot and was happy with all aspects of the Outback until my transmission failed at 83,000 miles. Since the power train warranty covers only 60,000 miles (they must know something) the dealership said it would cost me $8500 to fix. Subaru of America said they would give me $1,000 towards the repair as a good will gesture (it took them a week to come up with that). No thanks! Now I have to buy a used one online and hope that's not a lemon either. Needless to say "I don't love my Subaru"!

Favorite Features

Gas mileage.

Suggested Improvements

Better warranty. At least 100,000 miles.
