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


Get in, start up, buckle up, brake release - GO! I feel like Top Gun behind the wheel. Safety, technology, economy, features, price - winning combination. Everything but Nav, and my Android takes care of that. Retiring in January; from the Upper Midwest to FLA for the Last Shuttle launch. No interstates if I can help it. I have already driven 4500 mi. in three months, and got 28 mpg mixed driving. Winter gas has taken that down a notch or two, but who's counting. Big (unexpected) snow storm last week demonstrated the Subie's pedigree to my complete satisfaction. Remote start and heated seats - oh yeah! Great visibility, and room for this 6'5" male. Etc etc etc - loving it all.

Best Features

CVT silkiness, H-K Premium with Satellite XM (unexpected audio quality), iPod touch (Media Hub) & two cell phone connectivity with Bluetooth. Auto dual zone climate control is techno magic. Homelink, autodimming rear mirror, back up camera, and a styling sense that keeps "changing." Factory hitch.

Worst Features

Visor range hampered when swung to the driver's side window. "Oh God" bar in the way.

Congrats with the new purchase, with the retirement, and with the positive attitude to life. We need more people like you!
