Great AWD Hatch
By Extremistno9 on


2008 Subaru Impreza Outback Sport 4dr Hatchback AWD w/VDC (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


So far the car has been great. Drove it in a bad snow storm (10-14") and it handled great. I had to push really hard in order for the stability control to kick in. When did, the car straighened out beautifuily. The Outback sport has a slightly raised suspension over the stnd impreza allow it to be taken light offroading plus that allows the snow to not build up as much when driving. The radio is ok, but comes alive when using the aux for a MP3 player. Cargo space is great, seats are comfortable and heated. Dash and conrols are layed out very nice. Gas mileage is decent for a new AWD car. Avg 24 w/mainly city driving. Love the MPG gauge too! Makes you more aware of how you dirve.

Best Features

The silver two tone is nice looking along with the 17" rims. AWD (handling), heat seats, side mirros and wipers, all weather floor mats, overall feel of the car! The use of regular gas rather than premium which is what a lot of cars seem to be doing these days.

Worst Features

More horse power on non-turbo. Adequate 2.5L but more would be nice. Lighen the car up even more to up gas mileage. Other than that, the car is great and would highly recommend. This is our 3rd Subaru, still have the 2nd one and the 1st was traded in running stong at 13yrs old!
