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.
Subaru Outback Ratings, Reviews and Analysis
Ratings & Reviews
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.
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!
Like the styling, wished it and other cars didn't cost so much to own and operate.
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.
