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


Just got the Limited 2.5 with sunroof, naviagtion and I’m really impressed with the fit and finish of the car.
Everything works as designed, and the quality of the paint is excellent.
I am coming from an 2008 MDX that had a terrible paint job from the factory, the paint was very thin and would mark very easily.
I got the car for the gas millage and was concerned that I would not have enough power.
That is not the car, no need for the 3.6 for me.

Best Features

My favorite features are the roof rack with bars that fold out when needed and neatly fold back when not in use also, the electronic parking brake and the remote start. The car is a great value!

Worst Features

I am disappointed at some of the usual features that the car does not have in this price category, especially being a limited. These include, power rear hatch, memory driver seat, power adjustable steering wheel, MAINTENACE REMINDER, heated steering wheel, rain sensor wipers, and rear seat heat vents.
