2012 Subaru Outback 2.5i 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl 6M)


This is my first subaru and I cannot be more pleased.
I was looking at some higher mileage rated vehicles - but the Outback was so quiet and comfortable, I decided to sacrifice the 5 mpg.
As it turns out, I'm getting 25 mpg around the city and 32 mpg on the highway.
First time I've actually beat the listed mpg.
Great car!

Best Features

Great gas mileage and comfort.

Worst Features

Make XM/Sirius part of the Premium package. $700 add on is too much.

I just bought a 2.5i Premium CVT this week and I was able to upgrade to an XM radio for $395. They will replacing the stock radio this week.
