The Worst Phone System
By Thomas on


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


I still can't believe how many steps I have to take to make a simple call. Even after that the computer usually says it doesn't recognize that name anyway and quits. Its dreadful and its clear to me now whey the salesman didn't demonstrate it. 3 different buttons for the phone on the wheel and not 1 to turn the stereo on. Still got to go the old fashioned way. The doors don't auto lock after the car is in drive. Even the Yaris does that. The lift gate does not open automatically. A low end Camry its standard. The so called 8 cup holders are a joke, 4 are on the doors so you can't put cups in them and the others are so big that even large water bottles tip over. Tiny sun roof.

Best Features

Its roomy, exterior design. Not enough to make me love my car.

Worst Features

Save the money on the useless MPG computer and fix the phone and security features like auto locking.
