Love my "Roo"
By James on


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


Had this car for a year now, it is my 3rd Subie and second Outback. Put 200,000 miles on my 1998 and loved it, almost broke down when I sold it. We bought this one in California; and after two road trips to SF and Tahoe, shipped it to Germany and have driven to Prague, Berlin, and Amsterdam. She slides along nicely on the Autobahn at 100 mph with ease, the 2.5i at under 4K rpm! Very comfortable with me and mom in the front and the two kids in the back.

Best Features

Heated leather seats are very nice in the winter. Stereo is great, and really appreciate the iPod jack. Love the HUGE sunroof, and visibility is very good for a wagon. I like the exterior/interior styling much better than the 2010 version as well.

Worst Features

It's minor, but the rear cup holder has been used as a foot rest by my kids and has quickly broken. The rear "PZEV" tag is silly and should be replaced by "Limited" as in previous years. Very minor suggestions.
