2013 Subaru Outback 2.5i 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl 6M)


We recently passed 10,000 miles on our 2.5 Outback Limited.
I'll state right up front that so far we love this car.
We have not had any realibility concerns and it has performed very well.
The new engine and 2nd gen CVT work well together, and we find the drivetrain to be very responsive.
We have been averaging 26/27 mpgs in mixed driving.
Driveability and traction in bad weather has been great!
On the downside, the mpgs have gone down since winter has arrived, although we have been using the remote start a lot. The premium radio is good but not on par with offerings from other mfrs, and the SAT radio seems to cut out a lot.
Overall though it is proving out to be a good purchase.
