I like the simpleness of the basic Outback. The ergonomics and sound could be improved, but it is the work horse I imagined.

Great Times — This is my second Subaru and enjoy all it does. It is quiet and refined enough for long distances. Also has the room I need and gets good gas mileage to boot. Average 27 highway. Installed a K&N filter and can see the better averages. Safe and good all round car.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Quiet and roomy.

Cons: none

Good Transportation, Especially Long-haul. — I have had the car since late 2006, now have 71K miles (of that, some long-haul trips: Washington, DC area to Maine & back; SC and back; to California). I am now experiencing some slippage or sluggishness when kicking down a gear (NOT fun when getting onto the freeway!); will have that looked at during the next service. Other than that, the car handles very well, and is a pleasure to drive on long-haul trips. Ah, one last comment: I heartily recommend the heated seats! NB: I rated "Back Seats" and "Family Car" but don't have a family and use the back seats for groceries. I guess it'd be OK, though.

Pros: AMAZING carrying capacity!  I moved from east coast to west, (over-) loaded down tools, tables, computers, vacuum cleaners, dumbbells, and all other sorts of "stuff."  It was a pleasure to drive, coast-to-coast.

Cons: It has been very pricey to maintain--then I stopped taking it to the Subaru dealer, who seem to want to rebuild the car every time I walk through the door.  I now go to a local mechanic recommended by my boss, who is extremely reliable, and honest.

I Will Never Buy A Subaru Again. —

Performance: Poor acceleration from stop; Subaru reps told me that a hesitation was built-in to protect the AT, that I should have bought a MT. Quality: Poor engineering; the slowest computer processing in a car I've encountered in over ten years (ie, the car is extremely slow to respond to its environment, such as when to shift, etc). Premature seat wear. Headrests throw head forward enough to cause neck problems; I've turned the headrests around backwards. ABS self-tests, causing a noise that Subaru claims is "normal," but Subaru reps blamed second gear solenoids even though it activated in first through third gears. Burning odor for the first three years resulted in a rear wheel bearing at my expense; dealers conveniently refused to acknowledge problem. Keyless entry fails most of the time; dealer acknowledged, but did not have a fix. Front disc brakes vibrate occasionally (for four years now); recently dealer acknowledge faulty caliper pin bushings, but refused to repair except at my expense. The only car I've owned that got lower fuel mileage than the sticker stated, and yet is one of the worst performing cars I've ever had. Several other problems. Poorly thought- out engineering, or the lack of it (eg, power outlets without power; built-in hesitation; absolutely pitiful AT shifting - I can shift a MT smoother, and still hold my Starbucks coffee; etc). I wonder if their engineers have ever driven reputable cars, so they can have some idea of what it should be like. They should drive a German car, especially.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: it's green (color ONLY)

Cons: poor value; Toyota, Nissan, others, better car and costs less

Subaru Outback - Around Town, On A Trip, Or Outback, It Is A Great Car —

Having previously owned a Subaru Impreza WRX I already had a love affair with Subaru. This car was an upgrade for my family to have some of the Luxury items, and the bigger car we needed with growing kids. In the XT trim, the car carries the turbo we loved so much in the WRX, and at the same time the car is a bit of a sleeper. It looks sproty, but still sort of sublime. It is a good running car, and the only thing I really could have wanted more was the same care in Legacy suspension. They did not sell a manual, with my trim package in 07, so to get the goodies I wanted I had to go with the higher clearance Outback, but I have not been unhappy with this car. The car is very fast, very safe, and comfortable to drive. If you live where this is snow, there is no replacement for a Subaru to keep you moving. We had a storm here last year and the road was impassible to most vehicles. I accidentally got on a road that should not have been open, and although it was white knuckle driving, I was able to keep moving safely to my destination. Yeah - good car.

Pros: Solid build, powerful small engine with the turbo, worth the money

Cons: Air conditioning can be weak

The Best Car When You Consider Cost And Performance! — The best car for off-road & snow country. Great suspension and comfortable handling. Subaru has packed this outback with loads of power for off-road conditions. No repairs required. Great looking car. Awesome. Cost of ownership- of course fuel economy will be compromised by the 4WD but it's a trade off. No complaints. Fun to drive. Fun to stretch, fun to play.

Pros: great suspension & handling.

Cons: nothing that i can think off at the moment.

Speedy Outback — It took $2k to get it how it should have come from the factory, but it's a fast, stealthy (wagon), great handling car.
