    Great Car That Is Fun To Drive And Easy To Drive — Love just about everything. The only thing that I think could be changed is the center computer. It's next to the speedometer and it gives no important information and doesn't need to be there. It also doesn't have electronic MPH indicator which can get annoying. However that's the only thing I dislike.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Reliable and great handling

    Cons: Long car to drive

    Good Solid Family Car With Luxury Appeal — I upgraded my Outback with EyeSight for safety and love it! I'm convinced it's saved me from a few fender benders already. I like the roominess. But I buy Subarus (this is my fourth) for their overall quality, reliability, safety, power/performance and 4wd capability. Compared with the rest of the lineup the 3.6L Outback Limited is loaded with luxury features like the moon roof, leather/power/heated seats, bluetooth connectivity, navigation, rear backup camera, etc. For a mere $1200 extra you can get the EyeSight system too! I love this car and am pretty sure it will keep me happy for the next 10 years of ownership before I'm likely to upgrade again.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Comfort, reliability, features/options, safety, finally looks "cool"

    Cons: Relative to my prior 2.5L Forester Turbo, the bigger 3.6L normally aspirated Outback feels heavier and takes a bit more time to get to 60mph. It's got a lot of power and towing capacity but isn't peppy and zippy like a smaller performance car would be.

    Perfect Car For My Situation — Hard to belive a Subaru could carry a $35,000 window sticker, but they have come a long way. Fit and finish are flawless, interior comfort is top of the line. Nav system is outstanding and very easy to use. Harmon Kardon audio and bluetooth are perfect.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: So far this had been a great vehicle.  Love the keyless entry and start.  The leather is perfect, the AWD provides great handling.   Great vehicle, excellent dealer experience at Singh Subaru in Riverside, CA.  Shout out to my sdalesman Gordon Lai, he knows how to treat a customer, no pressure, most of the deal was done by e-mail and the phone.

    Cons: Nothing so far,

    Handy And Functional, Nice Dash — I like station wagons. This car can go most places and the all-wheel drive makes it safe and handy for driving in fields and off road. I like to drive through our family farm fields with my father to look over the cattle. To me it beats riding in a truck. It is very dependable and sits up nice and high. Power is more than adequate but I wish it had more. But his is just me. Overall fuel use (over 30 K miles) is 26 MPG+. It is great for hauling things. Good driver seat adjustments. Hidden storage in the trunk floor is nice. I find the dash controls easy to use and the interface with my phone works without a hitch. The electronic parking brake holds the car very securely on hills.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Dependable and functional
    pretty good ride

    Cons: Personally I want more horsepower-but this flat six is not at all weak

    Fun To Drive, Packed With Luxury Features At An Affordable Price — This car, like every other Subaru I've owned is fun to drive. H6 Boxer engine has some pickup, allowing you to pass others easily on the highway and makes going up Mountain passes a breeze. The handling is spot on, turns on a dime and the tires really grip the ground. Lots of cargo room, the cabin doesn't feel cramped like in prior generations. Special Appearance Package also includes push button start, side view mirror blinkers, and drivers seat memory, all huge bonuses to a already solid car. The interior styling in the front cabin is kinda an eye sore, especially the horrible looking buttons in the Navigation System. The Nav is hard to use. It shouldn't take a 200 page book to show me how to use it. Fuel economy also suffers in the H6, but so far is spot on from the EPA rating.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: 6 cyl. 256hp engine, leather seats, moonroof, dual air, 440 watt sound system, 17" alloy wheels, low maintenance (timing chain, 7500 mile oil changes).

    Cons: Styling, fuel economy (6 cyl, 4cyl gets 30mpg), Navigation System / Audio Screen is ugly and hard to use.
