2012 Subaru Outback 2.5i Premium 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl CVT)


Ok, me being a newbie to the Subies, I wanted to give my initial impression as it only has 1k miles. So far so good. I went for the Premium model only because of the Bluetooth Audio (must-have if you own an iPhone). Other features such as Heated seats, power drivers seat, and the add-on rubber mats make this wagon pretty cool. I was a bit hesitant at first when trading in my almost new 2011 5.0 Mustang in for something more family-friendly, but the smooth CVT transmisison and great gas mileage are nice. Looking forward to some vacations and many miles in my new car. Only thing a bit odd was how the 3.6 wasnt really offered outside of the Limited model in my area.

Best Features

Bluetooth Audio, CVT Transmission, Gas Mileage, AWD, Interior Space, Rugged

Worst Features

change the marketing on the 3.6 so dealerships actually have the non-limited models too!
