Solid Station Wagon. — This car is fun to drive and handles well for a large station wagon. The Flat 4 engine is mounted low in the engine bay to give it a better center of gravity for handling turns. This car has plenty of power with the continuously variable transmission and has no problem climbing hills. It automatically finds the best gear ratio to match the engine speed and deliver optimal fuel economy.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Very efficient Four cylinder engine mated to CVT transmission.  Very comfortable seats and easy to drive,  excellent visibility,  excellent handling,  and smooth ride with 30 mpg on highway.

Cons: None.

It Works. — As the wife's car and primary family vehicle, it gets the job done well. We upgraded the rear sway bar to an STi bar when upgraded the other and it bolted straight up cleaning up some of the sloppiness from the factory.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Plenty of room for a small family.

Cons: Could get better fuel economy for what it is.

Great Car For A Small Family — This car is by far the best car we owned. Great handling in the winter (snow and rain) and ample space in the second row for kids. Super reliable and great re-sale value. If you are looking for a first time family car - search no more.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Handling in the winter, Back seats space, great family car, re-sale value

Cons: no 3rd row

Great Commuter/utility Vehicle — Love it! Getting 30-32 mpg, has great pick up for a 4 cylinder, handles great, very smooth ride, can't feel it "shifting" through gear because of CVT, comfy seats, plenty of space inside, easy to clean leather seats, great sound system...

Primary Use: Commuting to work

This Is Probable The Best "bang For The Buck" That I Have Had In 40 Years. — I bought a black 2010 Outback Limited-no navigation but just about everything else.So far I am getting about 27-28 mpg in town and about 31-32 on the road.The 172 horsepower engine is more than adequate but it is not a "burner".Great amount of space.excellent 2nd row seats and a very well appointed interior.My wife has a 2009 Lexus and this car rides just as well as the Lexus.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: styling,comofort,space,gas mileage

Cons: not a speed burner but more than adequate.

If I Were To Do This Over I Would Buy The 6 Cyl. — The car drives well. It is well put together.I have the black leather interior and marks very easy. I had to put a leather protectant on the interior. I do believe the car is underpowered. The preformance is poor changing lanes in traffic. If I were to do this again I would have a six cyl.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: The car drives very well. Very well put together. The build quality is supurb. No excess noise or squeaks.

Cons: Performance at best would be three and one half stars. There is not enough acceleration in an emergency like moving into traffic lanes. I have not driven it enough to report on gas milage.

Not As Handsome As An Audi, But I'll Keep The $15k. — Very solid and effecient. An excellent four season performer. Aside from the speed, it does not feel much different than Audis I have driven. It is not nearly as beautiful as an Audi, but it cost far less. It was also built in a Zero Land Fill Factory, is most recyclable, and a PZEV (partial zero emmission vehicle, which I do not understand because zero has no parts?) making it a greener choice than any hybrid.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Excellent drivability and four season performance.

Cons: Not the prettiest, but a great personality!
