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


Coming from a Nissan Xterra to the Subaru was exceptionally easy. The 2010 Outback offers the greatest value, safety, fuel economy, and quality for a discriminating buyer. The 6spd is clean and crisp with close ratios for easy shifting. The AWD system performs exemplary with the only problem being slight cases of over confidence (a few trips around an empty parking lot to get used to the car is a smart move!). Subaru hit the mark with this car. The appeal of the vehicle is with a wide range of buyers with styling that is simple yet great for a family. Some have had issues with recalls on the vehicle but that shows a company willing to listen and improve their products.

Best Features

AWD system with traction control. 6spd transmission option (very rare on SUVs), excellent safety ratings, 31+ MPG on the highway and 27-28 in the city, cool and efficient folding roof rack cross members, plenty of space for a family and two big dogs!

Worst Features

Folding side view mirrors (2011 solved that), memory seat for driver, full size spare tire, 4 cylinder needs some more low end grunt, back end likes to float a bit just prior to traction control kicking in.
