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


This vehicle is a great value.
Extremely comfortable, balanced ride on the highway, and for the amount of space, extremely fuel efficient.
Left my home in Louisville for Monroe, LA with less than 500 miles on odometer.
Driving at 75mph with the AC on, we got 28.9 mpg for the 1,400 miles roundtrip.
That came to about 50 gallons of reg. gas; compared to 69 gallons of premium used by our '08 Mazda CX7 on our last trip.

Best Features

The drivetrain is very smooth; no shifting noted on the CVT, and the engine never lost momentum, even on steep grades. The front seats are particularly comfortable; my wife really liked the reclining features of the shotgun seat. You can virtually recline fully. Trunk configuration. I prefer the wagon type trunk, (larger footprint), over the SUV type shape of most crossovers, (less sq feet of footprint, with a taller space). You can put more cargo in without obstructing rearward view.

Worst Features

Anything I would change would only be nitpicking.
