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


Going from the 2007 2.5 turbo to the 2011 3.6R was a great deal. The turbo was fun and got good mileage (avg 22 mpg). Nice to go from Super unleaded to regular, saves $.30 a gallon. At just over 800 miles avg mpg for the 3.6R is just over 23. Great for regular gas. Don't be fooled the 3.6R (256 hp) has guts equal to the turbo (243 hp). Also no timing belt in the 3.6R to replace at 105,000, as it is chain driven cam. Subaru has done amazing changes in 4 years time with everything - styling, trim, materials - everything. We plan on keeping this Subaru for probably, at least 6-7 years. Look at Subaru they are fantastic vehicles.

Best Features

Ours is the 3.6R Outback Limited w/nav and moonroof. We can't just list features as it the whole car that makes this version so great. This is one car even the salesman can love and it shows.

Worst Features

Not much - memory seat adjustments, FULL SIZE spare, weather band radio in main radio, 2.5 engine with chain driven cam instead of timing belt. Belt change at 105,000 miles costs from $600 to over $1,200 depending on version of 4 cylinder engine and dealer location. Still a fantastic car for the $.
