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


Drove it down the interstate and it handled well. I was impressed with the 4 cylinder engine, once you get moving it seems effortless (Driving in Florida, so most of the driving on flat area. Somethings I would recommend: 1. Automatic Door locks should be included. 2. 2 AC vents near the radio should be placed in a different location. 3. Mud flaps should be included on limited model. 4. It would help to improve flexibility of seating if back seat could be adjusted back or forward a few inches (similar to GMC Terrain's back seat). 5. Warranty on drive train should be more competitive with other car manufacturers (many are 100,000 while Subaru is 60,000).

I concur with all your suggestions but for the first one. Automatic door locks? What are you talking about? They are automatic all right. Are they some sort of manual in your vehicle? They're auto on all Subarus throughout the lineup...

The door locks are not automatic, they are power locks just like power windows and power brakes. The reviewer is referencing the lack of automatic locking doors. Most newer cars have this feature where the doors lock when the speed is above 5 MPH. A nice feature when you have to routinely drive through carjacking territory.
