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


Made my decision to purchase after getting my BMW out of winter storage, became exhausted from the pounding of those run flat tires, just terrible. The ride is smooth, vehicle is sure footed, I now enjoy a relaxed commute. Purchased the 2.5 with manual transmission, just could not become convinced on the CVT. About 1,000 miles into it and has been enjoyable thus far.

Best Features

AWD for winter and nice ground clearance. What good is AWD without clearance, too easy to get hung up. Ride comfort a good basic car without all that electronic crap that to me is useless.

Worst Features

The engine needs more grunt the 2.5 is weak, but mileage is nice for a AWD. That efficiency gauge is worthless, put in a temp gauge or something. Air control is poor at every setting you get air through the defroster vent, have not figured out the purpose of that.
