Pros Lots of room in back
Cons Poor ride, lack of power
Purchased as Not Purchased
I read all the reviews, and watched all the Youtube videos for the Outback. I was severely disappointed when I test drove one. The seats are absolutely flat with no thigh support. The ride was stiff, maybe from the all wheel drive. On the test drive, I pulled out in traffic and was surprised at the lack of speed; the car takes off when it hits 5K rpm due to the CVT, but it takes way too long to get to 5K. I guess Subaru drivers like to rough it, even in their cars....MoreHide
Pros It looks nice, seats fold flat in back
Cons Uncomfortable seats and ride
Purchased as Not Purchased
I did a ton of research on this car and was severely disappointed in my test drive. Friends own Outbacks,and love them, but I thought the seats were flat and unsupportive, and the ride was very rough. The CVT only shifts in the power band, which is 5K rpm. It just takes the car awhile to get to 5K! My wife kept saying "Will you get moving? The traffic going to run us over!" when I pulled onto the highway. I know a lot of folks love their Subaru's, but they must like to rough it. I finally bought a '14 Chevy Equinox 2LT, which rides great, has incredible seats, and moves when I hit the gas. Very impressed with the 4 cylinder engine....MoreHide
Pros comfort, handling, reliability, durability
Cons having found any yet
Purchased as New
I've purchased 35+ new automobiles in my life going all the way back to a '72 Chevelle with a $3250 window sticker. Additionally, I have owned, ball park, 200 used cars. In all this time I have never purchased what I feel is a better combination of quality, reliability and value. For years mechanics have told me that while Honda's and Toyota's are great cars, subaru is on an entirely different, higher level. I finally listened. I bought the 2.5 Limited with the ISight package, and so far I can truly say the package was worth every penny of what it cost. My wife has fallen in love with the car, and she does not do this easily. I am seriously thinking about buying a second one so I can drive it....MoreHide
