    Great Family Car And Dependable Transportation — Love the AWD. All the fit and finish items are 1st class. This vehicle is built to last and will be in our family a long time. The cargo capaciy and ability to tow light loads is amazing for a 4 cyl engine of this size. The quality after 1 year is outstanding and I continue to grow in admiration of the Subaru brand.

    Pros: Love the AWD and the reliability, lots of room to pack the stuff in.  I tow a small utility trailer up to the So. Cal mountains from sea level to 7,200 feet with no problems.

    Cons: A little noisy for my taste, but overall I can't complain.  I would expect a few more features on the base model for a $25K vehicle.

    Best Value On The Market Currently — The expert reviewer of the 2010 model called the 2.5 engine and CVT engine terrible. Did he even drive the car? I am getting 31 MPG on the highway and the 2.5 engine has plenty of power for 95% of driving situations. The CVT does not operate like a traditional transmission. It feels like the acceleration is slower than it really is. The speedometer doesn't lie though. The 2.5 engine has been around for years. It isn't uncharted territory for Subaru. The engine is smoother and more refined than any other 4 cylinder I have owned. Sure you can get an Outback with the 3.6 engine if you can live with the additional fuel cost. The new re-design is head and shoulders above the older Outbacks. More rear legroom, better ground clearance, better styling while still retaining some of the quirkiness that Subaru is famous for. The handling and ride quality is great for this class of vehicle.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: More interior room, better gas mileage

    Cons: Continental Tires, interior plastic can scratch easily

    Awd Makes It Great For Me. — So far it's exceeded my expectations. Gas mileage has been exceptional for such a good size SUV (it's as good or a little better than my 2005 Honda Accord 4 cylinder). The CVT has been great so far. The Outback is very quiet and very comfortable for long trips (trip to Ottawa in 12 hours was not a problem). Handling is again better than I expected for an SUV...it's actually great for any vehicle (it's as stable as my Honda Accord was unless I really push it which is still within 90% of what the Accord could do).

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: It's a Subaru

    Cons: Nothing so far
