2011 Subaru Outback 2.5i Limited 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl CVT)


Here's an honest review- this car is not a 9.2 out of 10. Negatives: It handles like an SUV (slow, top heavy, and no where near nimble). The fit and finish are a little off (hard plastic dash, some spacing is a little off on dash parts, etc.), and the only desirable option (the v6) is WAY overpriced compared to other manufacturers. Positives: Comfort, ergonomics, storage, all wheel drive, safety. and gas mileage. Arguably styling as well, from my point of view the less "wagony" looking the better. Overall: you are not getting a BMW ride/performance, or Mercedes plush, what you are getting is a safe, dependable, sure footed, practical car for the modern family.

Best Features

Symmetrical all wheel drive, h k sound, back up camera, cvt.

Worst Features

soft dash, radio display (no scroll on text and hard to see in sunlight). Add tie down to side rails.

Thank you for the comprehensive review. I actually found yours to be the most useful. And you nailed it right "what you are getting is a safe, dependable, sure footed, practical car for the modern family."
