Grandma's new ride
By bruceb on


2011 Subaru Outback 3.6R Limited 4dr SUV AWD (3.6L 6cyl 5A)


Traded old Vo XC-70 for this top of line Outback. Safety, value and fun ride were criteria, not to mention high Consumer Rating (thanks CR and Edmunds). Read all 200+ reviews before deciding on 3.6R Limited (thank you all, especially 3.6R people who were right on the mark). The 3.6R has great get up and go. Looking forward to driving in New England this winter. Care drives like a luxury SUV, nimble and elegant, that is when grandma lets her old man (not yet 60) take "Stormy" for a ride (took delivery day Hurricane Earl hit Cape Cod).

Best Features

Harmon-Kardon 6 CD sound system is best we've ever had (to quote from a Who song) and Blue Tooth is cool feature for states strict about cell use. 25 MPG after 5,000 miles. Night panel lights well done, Great ergometrics this model. Considered Forrester Touring but needed more room for wife/kid stuf

Worst Features

Horn sound is lame
