Had the same problem with the dashboard warning lights lit up like a Christmas tree, As one observer suggested, disconnected negative terminal battery, waited 10 minutes, reconnected battery, lights gone and problem apparently solved. I like simple. Always better.

Interior is nice but I’ve had it less than a week and the brake light came on. Thank he transmission fluid temp light came on as well as the check engine light. It doesn’t shift to the next gear without a huge jerk. I was sold a lemon.

Dynamic All-weather Near-luxury Powerful Performer. — Bought as an in-betweener car - I needed a car to commute in alone and occasionally serve as family (5 of us) hauler. I wanted style, reliability and amenities. Plus wanted all-weather capability and preferred to stay under $20k (impossible) but did find this w/ only 18 mos and 12k of use for under $30k. Loving the sunroof, heated leather, and Bluetooth. Running highway mostly gets me 21-24mpg. City driving 16-19mpg. Happy with purchase so far.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Spacious and good looking. Well thought-out interior.

Cons: MPG not great and on-par with some 3rd row SUVs with more room.

The Outback is exactly what we are looking for and are not disappointed with our choice. Although it is a mid-size SUV, it doesnt feel and ride like one. Very smooth on the road and handles great. Pl... Read More

I love the Outback but it has been my Alaskan dream car for quite a while. It helps me drive safer than the traded-in sports car and it has much higher clearance for the snow. Gobs of safety features,... Read More
