Standard Awd , Good Fuel Economy And Low Maintenance Costs — The handing is more than acceptable. The 2.5i Is visually appealing. It has a sporty look yet makes a great family car without having the "minivan look". There is ample cargo space and a spacious area for back seat passengers

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: AWD & handling

Cons: Odd cup holder and arm rest layout

Not A Porche, But With The 3.6l It Might As Well Be... — Overall - worth EVERY single penny. They wish me to say more about the car before I can save. There's not a whole lot more to say. Exceedingly dependable, fairly sleek, huge cargo room (even with rear seats up), incredibly safe and reliable - and FAST.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: It's a Subaru. If you own, you know. If you buy, you will.

Cons: Traction Control: excellent when encountering black ice/unknown traction changes. Awkward when driving on known poor-friction surface. (FIX: Just turn Trac Control OFF).

TRANSMISSION OPTIONS: No manual. The "paddle-shift" attempt at "Manual" is disappointing. Also, the shifters are on the wheel, not the column which makes downshifting say in a corner ridiculous. One of the VERY few design flaws I can find. But if I wanted a rocket with total control I'd have bought a WRX STi (and I did).

Good. Just Reduce The Wind And Heater Fan Noise. — Comfortable ride, lots of room inside. Probably excellent reliability for 200,ooo + miles. Good economy. Highly recommended. It is my wife's 4th Subaru, she must get to work in northern snowy area, from gravel and rural roads, she will not drive any other brand. It may need 20" of fresh snow to stop it ??? We know it does 15" for twenty miles, unplowed. We love our Subaru's and don't understand why we don't see more on the roads. Traction tests on the likes of Honda CRV is a joke in deep snow. Not many come even close to Subaru symmetrical AWD traction.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Deep snow traction like no other vehicle out there.  15" of heavy slush won't even stop it.  
YouTube "Subaru Traction Test" to see absolute proof.  Economy is much improved now with CVT transmission, we get a lot of 29 to 31 even 32 mpg's with the all time AWD always there, which could've been a drain.

Cons: Wind noise and heater fan noise.  Could user a wee bit more power, but if one uses flipper paddle to keep engine rpm's up around 4000 +, it is snappier.  That only seems needed up in a large metro area.

Very Positive — I like how it handles in the snow. I also like the reliability of this car. This is my second Subaru Outback and this one was better than my 2007. I would buy this car again and would recommend to anyone who like reliability, cargo space and needs a utility car.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: comfort

Cons: common car

Overall Great Family Car. — Definitively a good family car for those who don't want the typical family car stigma. Safety is obviously one the primary concerns in a family vehicle and this meets or exceeds it. Looks should be last, but its not bad considering its a family car. Better than driving a mini-van, and that says a lot.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Safety, reliability, resale value. Well designed vehicle.

Cons: Poor gas mileage, maintenance is expensive.

Love It. — I really like everything about it except for the soft suspension. It could be a little firmer. The car has great acceleration. It is a great highway cruiser. Set the cruise to 75 and you just go. It gets 26 mpg on the highway

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great power with the 3.6R. Very comfortable for highway travel. Good gas mileage for a car this size. Reliable. Fantastic in bad weather/snow. Good cargo capacity.

Cons: Soft suspension

Great Car. I Love It. — This is a very practical car. Perfect for hauling friends, family, pets, groceries, gear and whatever you got without all the cumbersome features of a van or giant SUV. Its comfortable, fun, cute, sporty and gets good mileage. Its easy to drive, park and can turn on a dime. The Outback handles really well. Its acceleration is smooth and steady but definitely responsive. The brakes are fast and efficient with out compromising the cars stability. The (CVT) transmission is easy to use and perfect for ski trips or off the beaten path adventures. The Bluetooth and other gadget features included in the stereo system add another dimension of practicality.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: The Subaru Outback is a great car. Its versatile, practical comfortable and Lots of fun. I understand why its the most popular car in the Northwest.
....And I love the seat heaters.

Cons: There is a little blind spot on both sides and a little to the rear. Just need to do a quick head check before changing lanes.

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.
