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


My Wife and I just purchased this car, so we're waiting to speak to reliability, however so far we have been very, very impressed. The 4-cylinder 2.5L engine coupled with the new CVT is both amazingly smooth and will also give you all the power you'll ever need for acceleration or uphill climbing. Our test drive was very hilly and not having the roar of a downshift going up a steep grade was my favorite thing about it. The Interior is brilliant, simple, utilitarian but still nice to look at. Don't be afraid of the CVT, learn a little about it, and you'll love it! Other mini-SUV's just don't compare when you look at the AWD, CVT, and ground clearance.

Best Features

CVT is awesome. At 40 MPH on a flat road the engine is still giving power to the wheels, but only pushing a tick above 1000RPM - at 80MPH on a flat it's a tick above 2KRPM, and if you need more, just give it some gas and you'll have instant power! The MP3 player tray under the armrest is brilliant.

Worst Features

So far we haven't found any downsides to this car. It's great for every day driving, great for off-road or hilly driving, it's great for kids and great for hauling stuff. It's just a well-thought out, well designed and engineered car all the way around.
