Great Car needed better Shocks
By bwein on


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


Love this with the 3.6 plenty of power with descent gas mileage 22 combines for 18,000 miles.
My only complaint was the soft ride and poor handling.
I put KYB gas shock on it and now it handles great and rides nice and firm. (watchout Cayennes) We have taking this car on the LA to Mammoth trek many times to go skiing and have needed the AWD plenty of times and it works great.
We can fit 4 adults and a dog for a weekend of skiing if we put the skis and boards on the roof.
Ingenious rack system.

Best Features

Seat Comfort and leg room front and rear, Reclining rear seats, Great interior room for its size. Roof racks, Powerful 3.6,

Worst Features

Poor handling from the factory and too soft a ride. KYB gas shocks has solved my problem. USB to radio does not control my droid. 6 speed auto tranny
