2010 Subaru Outback 2.5i 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl 6M)


Best features for the money, seriously considered a VW Jetta Sportwagon TDI, however felt too small inside. If the Subaru had a diesel available it would have been much easier. In our first 3,300 miles averaging 27/28 mpg everyday driving and 31/32 mpg on the highway at 70 mph. These are actual numbers, not those on the dash computer which seems to run 1 1/2 mpg high. The more I drive it the more value for the money I feel we bought. Replaced an Audi A6 Quartto with 197k miles. AWD is the only way to go, not only for winter driving but also in heavy rain and even on dry surfaces. The CVT trans is super quiet, only at hard acceleration is it noticed. The paddle shifters are great.

Best Features

Fuel mileage, CVT, space for cargo, interior features, driving position, definitely buy the Limited model. Only item to change is the MPG gauge one the dash, should be a temp gauge.

Worst Features

Drop the mpg gauge, replace with temp gauge, longer bottom seat cushions. Great value for the cost. Purchased the car $500 below invoice without any problems and received delivery on order in 5 weeks.
