Stability Control Requires Leather Seats
By ruddyduck67 on


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


Best midsize value on the market. I wanted stability control as an extra safety measure but was kind of annoyed that this requires a whole host of non-safety oriented upgrades like leather seats and a moonroof (which is actually very nice). The other wagons in the lineup require premium fuel!? Yeah, I wanna spend an extra 20 cents per gallon for the life of the car. Anyway, it is a very nice driving car, very tight for a wagon, and can carry anything when considering the interior and the roofrack. One more thing about the roofrack, take off your crossbars when not in use. That little effort will take 5 minutes and can save you on mileage.

Best Features

Driving position, dual moonroof, corering stability.

Worst Features

Storage kind of stinks. Glove box doesn't fit much. Silly little ashtray is all but useless. No practical change holder. And as a running theme, work on better mpg. I am averaging 20 mpg. Talk to Toyota about dropping a hybrid under the hood.
