2008 Subaru Outback 2.5I Limited 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)


I like the combination of great looks (dark gray), good economy (23.5 mpg 70% city while driving briskly) and the comfort of the interior. Absolutely zero problems in 19,725 miles. Love the extra large moonroof and the AC copes easily with Phoenix summers. The car is everything I was expecting and more.

Best Features

Comfort, ease of entry (not too high), reliability, responsive and surefooted handling, good visibility and all round practicality. At this price point the sound system is a pleasant surprise.

Worst Features

Very much needs at least one more gear in the A/T to assist the engine to stay in its power band, especially when climbing long grades. Car bottoms at the rear with five adults and luggage on board much more than it should. A proper coin holder would be a nice plus. A bit more leg room in back.
