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


After 4,500 miles I am truly impressed. Unlike my 2002 CR-V our Limited is a full-sized, luxury car which is smooth and quiet on the road. While the CVT took some getting used to, the great mpg (25.5 city & 33 highway) is a wonderful surprise! It feels more like a wagon than an SUV. So far none of the problems reported by 2010 owners. Can't wait to go to Mammoth soon and try out the awd!

Best Features

MPG, CVT, comfort, cargo room, sound system with USB input & satellite radio, dual trip meters with MPG, and the security of awd! Despite the equipment limitations noted, the fold-away cargo rack is practical.

Worst Features

While handling is generally good it leaned too much in sharp, fast turns so I installed the rear STI 19mm sway bar. Very easy to diy in 30 minutes without jacking the car. Detailed instructions online. This mod really helps! The navi & audio are a pain because you have to be stopped to make changes
