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


I am a student that has to travel 425 miles round trip per week from home to school.
I previously had a full size pick up truck and I can not be happier with the switch to the Subaru.
I live in Northern NH and the outback is great in the snow/ice and handles well on the highway.
I have been averaging 25-27mpg highway but I suspect it mostly has to do with the terrain.
I am 6'3" and am not skinny by any means.
17,000 miles in 5 months and have been very happy so far

Best Features

Heated cloth seats, CVT makes the transmission shifts almost unnoticeable unless going up hill, tan interior is nice (hate black).

Worst Features

Bluetooth system work but will not sync with my iPhone 5 automatically no matter what i try, cup holders are very close together and are small which makes putting large drink in them a pain, tires that came on the car stock might be called all season but are not good for snow, more 12v outlets would be nice, and a better warranty because I will go through my warranty in under 12 months due to mileage.
