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


We bought a 2011 Outback Limited last month.
The seating and cabin room are very comfortable for long trips (two so far), and there is plenty of space for dogs, kids and gear. Our gas mileage has averaged 30/21.

We test drove several vehicles including the Kia Sportage and Sorrento, the Ford Escape and Edge, and the Subaru Forester before deciding on this one.
The Outback Ltd was the most comfortable, the perfect size and nicely appointed.
I love the back up camera.
And given the AWD it's a pretty smooth ride.

My only complaint is the radio, which can hardly be called a sterero system.
There is not a lot of robustness to it.
Everything else about the car is wonderful.

Best Features

The style and interior are less rugged-looking (more elegant) than the Forester. The seating is very comfortable, the interior has plenty of room - even in the back seat area - and storage space. I appreciate the back up camera although it takes some getting used to. The Bluetooth is nice. One feature that will come in handy is the luggage rack which can be adjusted to accommodate any kind of roof storage unit (going from two bars that run from front to back to two bars that run across the roof).

Worst Features

The stereo system - I use the term loosely - is not great, despite having 6 speakers.
