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


I bought this after driving a 1999 Forester for 10 years. We also have a 2005 Outback in the family. I initially like that this Outback is bigger, but quickly found that it is clunkier to shift and does not have the pick-up or power I could feel in my old Forester. Also, the trunk/hatch door is unnecessarily heavy and a pain to open and close. There have been two recalls necessitating trips back to the dealer for fixes. Now, after having the engine just cut off during turns several times, I have learned from my dealership that they've seen this with 2010 Outbacks. Engines can just shut off while driving! Seriously dangerous and the recall for this has not yet been written.

Best Features

Interior room and ground clearance

Worst Features

Need better quality, fewer need for recalls, and engines that don't cut out while turning. Go back to feel of shifting in older models.
