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


This car is designed for driving in Maine. It handles superbly in winter conditions. The low roof makes it perfect for hauling kayaks. My avg gas mileage was always 25+ in mixed driving. Last week we were in an accident in which the car rolled 1 1/4 times. My wife and I walked away with scrapes, bruises and a stiff neck. Of course we were wearing our seatbelts. The car was totaled. I'm looking for another Outback to replace it.

Best Features

Those heated seats are fast! AWD is great in snow and ice.

Worst Features

Wish the tailgate was designed to open more fully when there's something like kayaks or lumber on the roof. Better cup holder would be nice.
