Love This Car For Its Ability And Cargo Space. — Hands down one of the best vehicles I've ever driven. Easy to see out all windows for backing and switching lanes. Lots of cargo space with back seats folding down flat. Sleep in it and view the stars while car camping. Tie cargo to the top or put a Yakima rack on it. Hauled a kayak on it frequently. Never used the tow but it looks like a nice package with the wiring inside the spare wheel space.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great cross country or camping car! Handles extremely well.

Cons: Not much, although Outbacks were notorious for head gasket issues. I had mine redone in 2009. Wish it got better mpg. ~19

Subaru Outbacks Are Rock Solid Cars For The Outdoor Enthusiast. — Fun car to drive, good acceleration and braking. Not as sporty as the smaller sport version, but definitely more reliable. Roof rack very nice for strapping gear down. The fold down flat back seats make packing very easy and spare tire easy access.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great handling on all road conditions. Nice solid feel compared to most cars. Lots of storage for hauling your gear. Sleep in it and view the stars.

Cons: Head gaskets were a problem in many Subaru outbacks, and fairly spendy to fix. shop around for a good mechanic to keep up on maintenance.

I Will Own One For The Rest Of My Life! — If you live in the mountains, in lots of snow or just need a super reliable vehicle, own a Subaru!!! It's commonly known that they last well over 300,000 miles and while the repairs can be expensive they are worth the investment for the future. They are not only super safe, really reliable, sporty and fun to drive, they are cars you can trust your teenager in as well as drive your newborn home knowing they may some day learn to drive that same vehicle.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: I will always love a Subaru! The economy, the value, the longevity and most important, the safety!

Cons: The few repairs that will need to happen can be expensive and require a specialist.

Don't Hesitate To Buy! — Performance is peppy for a heavy car. Brake response is strong and stopping power is great. Handling is good, turn radius is what you'd expect from a car that size. Build quality is good. Materials are nice, hold up well. I think the styling is very nice. Cost of ownership is a little high. Parts aren't cheap and there are some chronic parts of subaru's that aren't a matter of if but when they will fail. Gas mileage isn't great but it is a heavy car with a 4 cylinder. Fun factor is great. I enjoy that I can take the car almost anywhere. Im not afraid to pull off the road anywhere or drive through a snow storm.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Space and all wheel drive

Cons: not great mpg

Practical Wagon With Heaps Of Room For Tools/bike/family, — NOTE 1998 2gen model Not very fast, but nice engine noise from inside cabin (boxer) nice brake feel even though assisted with plenty of stopping power nice softish suspension and power steering, tends into understeer when pushed a bit of an exhaust rattle but only when push at low revs in the gear petrol consumption about rated 12.5l/100km should be 8-10 as a subie, maintainance will be expensive (boxer) can be fun as it's alright for a bit of off-roading and doesn't mind being pushed a bit on tarmac

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: great all-round car, but practicallity over enjoyment

Cons: not much grunt for the sound, only 115kw

A Good Car For A Young Family. — Good for snow country. Lots of space inside. Gas mileage is good, but could be better for a 4 cylinder. Maintenance is tricky sometimes - find a Subaru qualified mechanic. Keep an eye and ear on the front axles, the hubs and bearings.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Good in 6" of snow.

Cons: Drive train problems. Timing belt work = $1.200.

Alright. — Bought this car used in 2004. Guy i bought it from claimed that the motor was no good, but it ran and drove so i guessed it was fine. Purchased it for $300 and drove it home the same day. Then, once i drove it to work the next morning i noticed that it got slightly overheated. Drove it home, and checked Coolant level, checked Radiator Hose, but they were both fine. Took it to the dealer and they said it needed new Head Gaskets and new Water Pump. Paid $800 to get it fixed and i think it was worth it. Although the AWD Doesn't get used beacause i live in San Diego, it is still a nice car to own.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Nice Cruise Control.

Cons: Twin Cam motor is junk.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: if you live in a snowy area

Cons: if you can't stand the sound of cargo shifting
