Good town car, but not for long road trip.

Reliable, well laid out, and quiet, but I never enjoyed a long trip. I am of average height, but the driver seat is short and puts pressure on the back of my legs. Typically got 27 - 28 mpg all-around driving.

Japanese Jeep

Like the reliability of the engine and drive train. The roof rack is nice to tie things down. The windshield spray pump quit working a few years ago. the factory radio has the national wx service channels built into the system.

Caveat Emptor!

Memory seat is a joke! Interior so noisy the big bucks radio is a waste as you can't hear it at normal volume levels. Transmission lags and stalls randomly in low gear at critical merging times. Factory say this is normal, dealer says engineering defect, I say a serious safety hazard, wife says she won't ride in it for fear of being T-Boned!

Very good value for all the important fundamental needs I have for a car.

Like the styling, wished it and other cars didn't cost so much to own and operate.

Small and good quality

The Subaru Outback is a great car that gets good gas mileage, rides smooth, and provides reliable transportation. It virtually never breaks down. If only the seat wasn't concave.

Recall Notices

2014 Subaru Outback (4/11/2019)

Campaign Number: 19V297000
Component Name: ELECTRICAL SYSTEM:IGNITION:SWITCH
Manufacturer: Subaru of America, Inc.
Description: Subaru of America, Inc. (Subaru) is recalling certain 2009-2013 Forester vehicles, 2008-2011 Impreza vehicles, 2008-2014 WRX vehicles, 2005-2014 Legacy vehicles, 2005-2014 Outback vehicles and 2006-2008 Tribeca vehicles equipped with a mechanical key ignition switch installed as a replacement part.

Defect: The engine turning off unexpectedly can increase the risk of a crash. If a crash occurs under this condition, the air bag may not deploy, increasing the risk of injury.
Corrective Action: Subaru will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the ignition switch, replacing the ignition switch, if necessary, free of charge. The recall began May 10, 2019. Owners may contact Subaru customer service at 1-844-373-6614. Subaru's number for this recall is WUF-91.
