2015 Subaru Outback 3.6R Limited 4dr SUV AWD (3.6L 6cyl CVT)


Review

Love the car, it was a choice between an Audi all road at over $60 or it’s closest competition the 3.6 limited outback. The great quality for such a low price (our price new was below msrp @ $34k) is amazing. Drives easily, good handling, comfort and roominess. The mpg is not the best but relative to the size and power of this vehicle. Now for the negatives,,,the road line sensor warnings nonstop beeping is annoying plus there isn’t an obvious way to turn it off. The factory battery is weak and small. The battery needs to be replaced long before it fails and upgraded to a unit with more reserve capacity due to the self diagnosis the car does every night. This self diagnosing uses up too much power and drains down the battery also if you put a front window shade in you can accidentally hit the map light during daylight hours and kill your battery that way too. Lastly I don’t know if it’s low quality factory tires or the Subi AWD system but the tires were completely wore out and not safe after only 45k miles of regular mixed city/freeway driving. Our other AWD cars factory tires last 65-70k miles so we were amazed. Over all this is a great, dependable and comfortable car especially after the tire and battery upgrades we did. Also love the free lifetime oil changes our dealer gave us.

Review

small reoccurring problems that I feel should have been covered but weren't, the gas cap opener failed, repaired $400 and happened again, should have been covered, I felt the leather on drivers seat was breaking down and splitting, no real sign yet but I could feel it. the transmission slipped more and longer than it should have as with I often backed out on to a main road and had to wait as it slipped dangerously long before drive would work.

Review

Very comfortable car for long trips. Added Michelin Premiers at 40K for added safety - quieter than the OEM tires.

Only complaint is the radio should remember what station I had on. Love all the safety features and at 65 mph I average 34 mpg! Great in upstate NY snow. This is our 8th,very good resale\trade in value.
