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


I bought this 2010 in Dec 2009 and ready to trade it in for something other than Subaru. 1st, the old OB had a car chassis (great ) and now an SUV/Truck chassis (awful). 3 recalls, stalling with A/C on full, squeaky seats, under powered engine, can't find door unlock button at night, rocky and jolting ride (Truck chassis). This car is much bigger than the real station wagon Outback. I wish I knew at the time Subaru made these major, value destroying changes, to the Outback. We are very disappointed with this car and I wish I knew they made these

Best Features

Higher ride is nicer

Worst Features

Bigger lock/unlock buttons. Go back to car chassis, more HP for engine. Go back to to what the Outback was!
