2008 Outback Is Frustrating
By Bill R on


2008 Subaru Outback 2.5 XT Limited 4dr Wagon AWD w/Nav, VDC (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 5A)


We traded in a 2004 Outback for a 2008,and have been disappointed by poor mileage, need for premium gas, and the worst nav system logic ever invented (partly designed by lawyers, I assume!). The nav system won't even let the passenger set a new destination while underway, it has such inane logic. The seat heater controls require you to look down at the aft end of the center console, a major distraction.

Best Features

Handling and front seats, body style

Worst Features

Scrape the factory nav system, use a Garmin! Eliminate the need for premium gas and improve the mileage. Move the seat heater controls to the forward field of view
