2013 Subaru Outback 3.6R Limited 4dr SUV AWD (3.6L 6cyl 5A)


I've hqd my 2013 Outback 2.t Limited for over a year. I wanted a 6 cylinder. The choise was between an Acura RDX and Outback. While I like the Outback, for the amount of money I think the RDX would have been a better deal. The price was about the same except the Outback
does not have drivers seat memory, a LOUSY almost unusable navigation system, no auto assist parking, no power tailgate. In addtion the OUtback is noisy as all get out. The heat/AC fan is so loud you can't hear the radio. Road noise is loud as well. Gas mileage is 5-7 MPG below what is advertised. Not exactly the best choice in the $35K-$40K price range.

Best Features

The handling and accelaration make it fun to drive. It is designed for AWD not as an AWD add-on. I like the Eyesight, the 10 position power seat

Worst Features

Add a drivers seat memory with powr seats. Make the navigation system more useer friendly. Do something about the interior and road noise. It' cannot be that hard to find a quieter fan.
