2008 Subaru Outback 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Overall, very nice car. Leather seats are luxurious and comfortable. Decent MPG for AWD system. Accurate Navigation system. Nice cargo room. Back seats are a little too cramped. I've owned 4.9L V8, 4.5L V8, 3.5L V6. Maybe this is why this Outback seems so so so so so slowwwwwwwwwwww. I make sure engine revs at around 6000 rpm and this car doesn't pick up speed quite well. I should've got XT or H6 version. If you don't care about acceleration, then this car may be the perfect car.

Best Features

Non stopping rabbit-like AWD system, versatility, and history of good reliability.

Worst Features

One of the lowest quality Navigation screens I've ever seen. Such a low resolution screen. POI is useless.
