Waited until I had my car a couple of months to post a review. Looked around at every midsize crossover, from BMW X1, X3, Infiniti, Acura, Honda, Toyota and Volvo for months to find something that met the needs of city driving and parking while also comfortable enough for a road trip. After 4 BMW's this was quite a change, I've been so impressed with my Outback!
It does everything well, and the 3.6R has plenty of get up and go when needed.
The Limited has all the creature comforts, excellent visibility and the car has that safe, solid feel to it in all kinds of driving conditions, including the rare snowstorm in Atlanta!
Excellent visibility and super comfortable driving position.
Special Appearance Package, like the fact it doesn't look like every other car out there, and saddle brown interior is very rich looking. Enjoy the backup camera, and was so impressed when the time changed that the car automatically updated to Daylight Savings Time. That saved me getting the book out and figuring out how to do this on the new car!
AWD is great to have, really held the road during our couple of winter snowstorms while other vehicles were struggling.
Stereo is probably best stated as just OK.
Not the best, but I'm not a real audiophile so it does the job for me just fine.
Only other thing would be a little more interior lighting in the back.
Otherwise it's an all around great car!
