2018 Subaru Outback 3.6R Limited Review
midwest_guy says:
I drove this vehicle before I purchased another car. I really disliked driving the Outback: (1) lousy brakes, (2) lots of body sway in corners, and (2) a touchy accelerator pedal. It reminded me very much of a bookmobile that I drove for the local library when I was in school. I wanted to like the car and it was at the top of my list but a fifteen minute drive really turned me off.

2018 Subaru Outback 3.6R Limited Review
GuruYQQ1D says:
Handles very well and feels very capable on our terrible dirt road with little side-to-side movement. Handles and performs equally well on pavement during my long commute. It has features I find enjoyable during my long commute as well. Comfortable, quiet, and not exactly like everything else on the road with plenty of pep for Dallas traffic.

Handling Ranked 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo worse.
"On both dirt road and pavement, the Outback was smoother and I felt more in control. "
Family Car Ranked 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo worse.
"A little more room for legs of all sizes, and the seats are comfortable and durable."
