2011 Outback - from a high mileage driver
By sallad75 on


2011 Subaru Outback 2.5i 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl 6M)


I have owned an '07 and '09 Outback prior to this 2011.
I put on ~25k miles a year in all weather types (ND).
The 2011 Outback rides great, has more room and does get better mileage than the previous 2 models.
With just over 9k on the new car I am gettting 28-30 MPG on the interstate (77 MPH) and 33 MPG on the 2 lane roads (67 MPH) and in town 24-26 MPG.
The car has great room, handles well and is a pleasure to drive.
I have the premium model which adds some nice touches without going over the top.
The clearence is great, especially in the snow we get up here.
I also test drove a CX-9 when looking but found this a much better fit for our family.

Best Features

-Improved interior room, better ride and quiter while driving than '09.

Worst Features

little things like larger knobs on the radio, the trunk lid shuts a bit harder than necessary and tires feel a bit soft compared to the other Subarus I have driven.
