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


This is the most cost effective car on the market today. It is a luxury universal in the city, fully capable SUV in rural areas, yet fuel efficient and affordable. Was shopping for a crossover for at least 4 month. Test drove Venza, Rav4, HR-V, Sportage2011, Forester, InfinityEX35. Almost bought the Infinity for the driving impressions and design. But ended up with Outback. No regrets. Did 2700 miles so far in the Salt Lake City area. Mileage as advertised 24 to 32. Climbed the hill where Ford Explorer has to backed up, and crossed the deep river where only serious SUV has courage to go. Accelerate to 100mls/hr and had no vibrations with avg noise. Roomy, comfortable, well thought vehicle.

Best Features

CVT with paddle shifters, back-up camera, HK sound with satellite radio (a must outside the city), AWD, wood- like interior, reclined rear seat, paddle lights, interior design and cargo room. Gas Mileage!

Worst Features

Only minor: A/C vents for the rear passengers. Replace mpg gauge on the main dash with something more useful, like engine temperature gauge.
