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


After nearly 20 years of exclusively buying and leasing Nissans and one month into a 2012 Outback 2.5i limited, I couldn't be more pleased.
The vehicle is very comfortable and nicely appointed and fit and finish is excellent.
Granted, the pickup for the 4 cylinder engine isn't the best, but it gets you up to whatever speed at which you're comfortable and easily keeps up with the traffic flow.
Don't know what the steering "wander" fuss is about, as the R&P system results in a sure-handling sports car feel.
Moreover, overall fuel economy in the first month of driving has run from 25.5 to as much as 29.5 mpg over the course of two 600 mile NYS thruway round-trips and local driving.
