Vehicle2007 Subaru Outback 2.5i Basic 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewI previously owned a 98 Forester and a 2001 Outback so I chose to come back to Subaru mainly for the AWD system. I know gas mileage will improve over the first 5000 kilometers, and with warmer temperatures in the spring. Since buying the Outback I've added a tape/film chip guard from Ziebart to help reduce gravel rash on the hood, the arm rest extension, winter mats, and had a dark tint film added to the front part of the sunroof to reduce glare when driving. The build quality appears far better than my earlier purchases, and the fold down feature for the back seat is much more user friendly.The interior materials seem to be of a higher quality with no issues around fit or finish.
Best FeaturesVery good all around visibility. Good headlights, and a good sweep area on the front and rear wipers. The lighting on the gauges and controls makes them very visible at night. As a Subaru the AWD is a given, and the functionality of having a wagon again makes this a very practical family vehicle.
Worst FeaturesIt's bad enough that the spare is a donut, but there isn't room for your flat tire in the interior wheel well so what do you leave behind if you're fully loaded and have a flat? Also needs a change holder, height adjustable passenger seat, and why is a comfortable center armrest an extra?
