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


This replaced a 98 Legacy wagon and is an incredible improvement especially the interior. I have the PZEV version and had read that people were having engine problems in cold weather but the recent few subzero spells have been no problem at all. The 4 cylinder 2.5 is more than adequate but if you want real umph get the turbo or 6cyl. This has more power than my 98 Legacy yet it still gets better mileage!

Best Features

ergonomics, seats are great, great ride, decent mileage, great traction in inclement weather, safety- IIHS best pick

Worst Features

Homelink power should be kept on even when no key in ignition. Put cupholders back on dash. More interior colors, light colored carpets are not practical. Bring the Legacy wagon back!
