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


After over 25 faithful years to UAW built car, that was it. GM left me hang again. I first bought a 97' Corolla, too small, and bad on the northern Michigan snow. I spotted my 09' Outback, blue with silver on the bottom online, and went for a test drive. I admit,,I had pudding face. It's now late 2011, my used 09' with 24K mi drives better than my Trailblazer did new. I have owned this car all summer, and love driving it. MPG is 28-29 hwy, and I am ready for another road trip. I will buy a brand new Outback as soon as Subaru improves the look over the 2012. Thats one ugly stepchild to the 05-09. Never fear leaving the UAW behind.

Best Features

I love the styling, and the layout of the car. I love the reliability, and sure footed nature of the AWD.

Worst Features

The 2012 model is one ugly step child. Restyle the car more to 05-09, add heated wipers, and better tires than Bridgestone....they suck. I will buy a new one right away, keeping my beloved 09' of course.
