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


I remember reading that the Subaru Outback is good at everything but great at nothing before I bought one a year ago. This is very accurate except in terms of reliability and mud handling. Being from northern California I do not experience snow but I can attest to its mud ability, which is excellent (be sure to turn traction control off). I have pulled Sea Doo boats and Yamaha Jet Skis with ease, surprising for a 4 cylinder, but it was competent as long as the load wasn't over 2500lbs. Ride and comfort could not be better (it beats my 2000 BMW 328i by a long shot). I could not wish for a better car, only thing are a few rattles and squeaks which I hate and its exterior looks suck.

Best Features

AWD, Gas Milage, Comfort, Heated mirrors, windshield de-icers, Harmon Kardon sound system, towing, roof rack system, interior storage, heated seats, interior space, head/ fog lights.

Worst Features

Exterior looks, a few squeaks and rattles could be fixed.
