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


I have over 3000 miles on my 2011 Outback and have been very happy. It has a smooth quite ride with plenty of power for hills and passing other cars. The front seats are firm and comfortable for long trips and the rear seat room is the best on the market. I have taken it to the Sierra, in California, twice and it was very impressive. Driving up the steep grades was no problem and it handled the trails around Crowley Lake like a champ. The AC works well and keeps the inside cool and comfortable even when it’s well over 100 outside. There is enough space for a full size spare, which I added. I tried the hill assist mode on a steep hill and it worked as intended with no backward motion

Best Features

1 Smooth quite ride 2 Good gas mileage for a six cylinder, averaged 27 MPG on a trip to Mammoth Lakes, CA from the LA area 3 Plenty of power on steep hills in the Sierra Mountains 4 Off road capability for a crossover 5 Folding cross bars on the roof rack 6 Puddle lights are great while camping

Worst Features

1) Engine temperature gauge instead MPG gauge 2) Auto locking doors 3) Light on Homelink buttons
