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


I bought my first Subaru after a long search. Chose it over a CR-V, primarily for handling - the Subaru is very solid. I love the AWD - it saved my life this winter during a very difficult snowstorm. In my previous car (a Toyota Camry) I would have been off the road. I love the spaciousness of the interior - a big factor in my purchase decision. The rear seats fold down in a second, and leave lots of flat room, unlike the CR-V. The gas mileage has been fantastic - at worst 28, at best 32 mpg. The recalls are a big issue - my dealership is an hour away - that adds up to many added miles on my new, not-exactly inexpensive car! Wait for the 2011 - let them fix the recall issues.

Best Features

Solid handling. AWD. Great Gas mileage. Sunglass holder.

Worst Features

Less silver in the interior. More support in the driver seat. Better rear vision. Fix the recalls!
