2013 Subaru Outback 2.5i Premium PZEV 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl CVT)


Had my Outback for 3 days now and really nice to drive, well laid out on the interior, handles fantastic on wet roads.

Now, for the take to heart before you buy issues. Steering not as tight as it should be, mushy brakes, noisy tranny, seriously over rated gas milage, and extremely fussy blue tooth.

I bought this with my wife in mind as she loves Subaru. Had I to do it all over again, would have bought the Hyundai Sonata 2.0 turbo, now thats a car!

If you are considering the Outback, test drive it twice, even three times before you commit. Make sure it is exactly what you are looking for.

Best Features

Interior room, wet weather handling, cargo space.

Worst Features

Rate the gas milage accurately, too many models don't live up to anywhere near their inflated claims. Tighten up the steering and brakes, better blu tooth program, too many steps to phone out.
