2009 Subaru Outback 2.5i Special Edition 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)


I had done the usual research of the reviews here and want to provide some additional info for potential buyers. The build quality and tightness of assembly is very good. Materials & design are competitive with more upmarket brands. Overall the Subie is a great vehicle for those who are looking for versatility, durability and resale value. Gas mileage is around 21-22 mixed & 27 mpg hwy. Overall good value vs. Audi, VW, Mazda et al.

Best Features

Heated seats, 4WD, handling, headlights, ride quality, looks.

Worst Features

Harman & Kardon system is not what its cranked up to be ( My old SAAB 95 HK is far superior); Why is the center armrest height extension an option? It should be standard! Steering wheel audio should be standard as well.
