Not a Station Wagon Anymore!

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


The requirements for a new car to replace our 1997 Outback was not to have an SUV nor CUV, but a wagon with 5* safety and AWD. Well, we ended up with the 2010 Outback, which is a combo of all three. Little did we know after we brought car home and seeing it in our garage, this is a large CUV/smaller SUV, not the usual Outback wagon. It is huge and if you are against SUV/CUV's, this is not your vehicle. Not sure how we will deal with driving an SUV, as it seems OK, but, it feels like I am driving a tank. I am also shocked to read neg comments on roof rack.

Best Features

Sound System is good. You can play a soccer game in the back seat as it is cavernous.

Worst Features

Hazards always being turned on when I shift gears. Side mirrors block view and non-folding.
