Great car

Pros - "High-end interior Powerful optional turbocharged engine Roomy seating and large cargo hold"

Cons - "Slight infotainment learning curve So-so standard engine"

Luxury in so less price I love the luxury feeling, space inside, safety features, front dashboard, heating ease, radio applications, warmth beside mine palms, brakes abd accerleration, I enjoy how it stops at halt lights and starts right up again. The staff was really supportive. Thanks to all you accomplished, Robert! With my new automobile, I'm incredibly delighted! On my auto purchasing experience, Brian was incredibly helpful! Everyone was incredibly kind and comfortable in the dealership. I absolutely would go back to buy a different car!

Family SUV

Pros - Comfortable, practical, AWD

Cons - No window tint, no leather, small screen

Perfect family hauler If power is not your priority and you don’t want those flashy and somewhat unsafe SUVs then Outback is just for you. It is designed to be a daily commuter. Everything about it screams “Family vehicle”. Be it the design or interior, safety or reliability, and even the power. Everything is designed keeping the needs of a family in mind. Excellent, the dealership has been nothing but nice and helpful to me and my family.

Fit and finish

Pros - AWD, smooth CVT, features

Cons - Bad quality interior, noisy motor

Fit and finish are what it lacks Let’s start with the things I don’t like because they are few. For one- the legroom in the second row is very bad. Two, road noise is very annoying, especially at high speeds. Three, the touch screen is confusing to use. And these are the only things I don’t like about my new Outback. Other than these few, I love it! All things considered, this has been one of the best deal of my life. The experience could not have been any better too.

Subaru Outback- checks every boxes

Pros - "spacious, silent cabin, reclinable rear seats"

Cons - Center screen glare

Made for practicality. I really liked the silent cabin and responsive engine of the outback and finalised it on the same day. I enjoy the reclinable seats in the second row and spacious cabin, also the hands-free tailgate operation is very useful, but I do have one complaint that subaru should do something about the sunroof destroying the user experience of the infotainment screen Harvey provided the best customer service and quality care that every sales person should. Though the car we spoke about on call wasn't available when we visited the dealership, Harvey explained everything about our new Subaru and showed quite some patience throughout the process.

Spacious Outback for your family

Pros - "comfortable interiors, plenty of space, great ride quality"

Cons - Hard plastic touch points

Hard plastic matched with decent ride quality of our brand new outback My subaru outback provides very comfortable ride quality and enjoyable drive. The handling is good and the good amount of ground clearance is useful. The spacious cabin further adds to the taste of the suv. Hard plastic touch points however aren't something I wished to see in my brand new car We didn't get the car on the day they had promised however they apologized and did give us a free car wash. Also, we might not have opted for the one with awd, had it not been for Frank.

A good family car

Pros - Comfortable, smooth, easy to drive

Cons - Road noise, Auto start/stop

A car worth buying in every aspect. Outback really has some get up and go! It accelerates quickly and without any lag, great family hauler! And all this without compromising on the comfort. I have a lot of features in this vehicle that I love! Adaptive cruise control being one of them. Outward visibility is good, it is roomy and airy and not claustrophobic at all. The cabin is a little noisy though. The design of the 2021 Subaru Outback is great! It is better looking than older generations. I have never felt safer than before. Everything is sturdy and well built. Outward visibility is good too. Subaru have always been Outback is a good value for money reliable

Love my Subaru

Pros - Good gas mileage, airy, safe

Cons - Nothing

A great purchase honestly it drives great and is super reliable and I don pay much on gas. The Outback is the best car! It has been working like a charm! Absolute bang for buck! Good gas mileage is my favorite The interior is the best part of having a Subaru. It is roomy inside and in the cargo area. Seats are comfortable, have a good back, and thigh support. Wish it was a bit sleeker with some prominent lines! Feel very safe on the road! There is even a setting that if you ever were in an accident it would immediately call 911 for you and get response teams there. I always keep my vehicles well At $40k, you get a fully loaded Outback. maintained.

Perfect for me

Pros - Performance, capable, roomy

Cons - Engine noise

Outback is the best purchase, car wise, we?e ever made! Seriously! No regrets. Excellent family car! It's smooth and easy to manoeuvre. Has been working smoothly and without a single issue. The performance is really good considering it is a family hauler. Touch screen is responsive, bright, and easy to use. The interior feels great! The quality is top-notch and everything is well placed. Controls are well laid out and are easy to get used to. The design is superb! It is modern, sleek, stylish, yet very practical. Very safe especially with all the safety features that came standard. Feels very well made and good quality. Nothing feels cheaply done. Heavy-duty plastic. That what you expect with a Subaru. So far there has not been a single issue. Everything has been working For me, this is a pretty good deal. It has everything I wanted at a price I could afford. well.

2021 Outback

Pros - Reliable, ride quality, AWD

Cons - Climate controls could be better, infotainment is complicated to use, CVT

I like my Outback! The CVT is smooth but is not good for performance. Handling is pretty good though. It moves and performs well. The ride quality is pretty good too. Radio, electric windows The climate control could be better, it takes time to cool down the cabin. Infotainment is a little complicated to use and you have to press too many buttons to do things. Love Subaru design language. They have kept everything people love about design and have only changed or updated things which were absolutely necessary. The materials feel sturdy and great. The car feels safe overall. Outback is great when it comes to driving, have been dealing with issues with infotainment, but nothing Well worth the price! serious

A very practical suv

Pros - Powered tailgate,silent drive, reclineable seats

Cons - Infotainment screen is hard to use if it has sunlight falling on it

comfortable and practical call stand up it's name -premium driveability, great suspension and a quiet cabin privacy screen in the cargo, foldable seats with the help of tabs, reclinable seats Plush black leather interiors with greyish stiches and glossy black finish on the central console. The infotainment screen feels like an ipad and is very responsive and easy to use the design is not a headturner and appealing but the practicality overall makes me respect the design team All standard features they have in the market. The beep sound increases if you continue to drive it without wearing the seatbelts very much $30039 with a good discount from the dealer good

Up and going in an Outback

Pros - Harman/kardon sound system, maple leather seats,plenty of room in the cargo

Cons - Accessing the digital tachometer can be a tough job as the controls are below the steering wheel

A very practical and feature rich car The suspension is really since and the soft. The acceleration is impressive gives you the feel of a car. The cabin is silent most of the car unless you want to push the pedal hard. The steering is very light heated and ventilated seats with 2 memory settings. Front facing camera, quick release tabs for folding seats, powered lift for rear door. maple leather seats are super comfortable and feel premium, the second row seats are reclinable satin colored side mirrors and all LED lights, Looks streched out from the side with the window line merging towards the end, Side mouldings have been provided to facilitate easy access to roof Standard Subaru features Indeed reliable $38,680 good

A near-perfect station wagon.

Pros - Excellent cargo space. Refined ride quality. Great on features.

Cons - Lazy engine. Slow infotainment system.

With ample of features, space and a good AWD system, it calls for one of the best station wagons right now. AWD system works well in getting around rugged, icy roads. However, wish the engine had little more grunt. Harman Kardon premium sound sytem works well. Heated seats, hands-free tailgate and key-less access are standard. The leather-trim upholstery are really comfortable. The cargo area is quite spacious even without the rear seats folded. I really like the simple yet expressive design of the Outback. It has standard active safety features. Even after couple of long family trips, the car has been doing just fine. Had a good trade-in deal at Walser Subaru. Good value for my old Subaru

The Practical Subaru

Pros - Comfortable ride. Roomy interior. Good stereo system.

Cons - Complicated infotainment system. Intrusive driver assist systems. Simple interiors.

It definitely is a great station wagon with lots of comfort, space and adventure that can be unlocked. The car is a pleasure to drive on the highways and loose-mud trails alike. Harman Kardon system offers great sound although the system is sluggish and difficult to use. The interior looks nice and neat with contrast stitching on the leather upholstery. Its big on space and comfort. The exterior is blend of a traditional car with bits of ruggedness of an SUV. I did find this uncoventional styling appealing the moment I saw one in the dealership. I really like the driver fatigue warning system. Apart from that I found most aids to be obstructive and even bring out false alarms at times. I haven't had any issues with the car. At about $42k tag, it is steep for a station wagon, but its practicality does justify it. New car experiences are always fun!

The SUV-like Estate!

Pros - Punchy turbo engine, Standard AWD system. SUV kinda space.

Cons - Simple design. No leather seats.

It certainly blends bits of a car and SUV alike by offering comfort and utility in a family-friendly package. The acceleration is quite punchy and is fun to drive. The X-Mode with drive modes for mud, rain gets the car going in narrow trails. I really like the vertical 11.6" screen, 6-speaker stereo. Even with a full-size soare wheel, theres tremendous cargo space. The black/grey seats with green stitching are great on looks as well as comfort. There's enough USB ports, storage spaces including below the loading floor in the trunk. I find the exteriors to be fairly simple for my liking. Will probably do away with aftermarket body styling kits. It includes all standard driving aids, airbags and belt tensioners. I havent had any real problem apart from a few punctures. Will probably change into trail tires. Got a great low APR offer for 63 months The finance guy helped by working out the tenure with what I could pay.

The laid-back Outback

Pros - Spacious cabin. Good ground clearance. Family-friendly.

Cons - Sluggish acceleration. Simple exteriors. No heated steering wheel.

It definitely is worth a purchase for adventure loving families. The station wagon starts off with a lazy acceleration everytime. But, does that with a calm and refined ride quality. It comes with a 11.6", 6-speaker infotainment system, heated front seats and more USB ports for the rear passengers. It has a boring but functional interior design. The rear seats offer good legroom as well as cargo space when folded. The adventure-ready yet family-friendly generic styling is great for a car of this class. It earned a 5-star crash rating from NHTSA as well as standard driving aids. The car comes with a standard 3-year warranty which is substandard compared to others. At about $31k tag, the well rounded station wagon is a good deal. Never had a better car-buy experience like here!

The affordable luxuary suv

Pros - 1-Power shifter 2- Rear cameras 3-Heated seats

Cons - 1-Regular design 2-Standard moon roof 3-Basic styling

The funky subaru Smooth ride and the cabin quality is greata dn the noise is very less inside the cabin which is good. As a low trim model it does have all the features like heated seats power shifting of gears , however the sunroof is small should have been enlarged. The seating is of cloth which is a turn off other than that its pretty much comfortable back in seats. The design is pretty much basic nothing quirky about it. awesome cant say much Affordable and practical great

Out in the Outback

Pros - 1) Spruced up controls, 2) All Wheel Drive, 3)

Cons - 1) Lack of power, 2) Average ride handling,

I must have got something better at this cost. The engine lacks some power, but is competent enough as most of the rivals of this segment offer the same. It's handling is above average, but ride is comfortable with a car like feeling which makes it good. It has fetaures like Symmetrical All wheel drive with X mode, LED steering responsive headlights, 8.7 inches of ground clearance, raised roof rails with cross bars and tie down points. The cabin is spacious and airy. Handsome amount of passeneger room is available across both front and rear seats. I like the clean dashboard and spruced up controls. I found the design to be usual and simple, yet a rugged one. When viewed from side, it gives an athletic stance ready to hit the ground running. It has symmetrical All Wheel Drive, adaptive cruise control, high beam assist, lane departure and lane assist features for aiding drive safety. It has proved to be reliable till date. Starting at $26,795, the price is a bit more. I had a bad experience here.

Pouring heart out to Outback

Pros - 1) Powerful enough, 2) Enhanced safety, 3) Quick smooth transmission inspite of CVT's

Cons - 1) Not meant for hardcore offroading

I tend to like it as it has proved optimum in every aspect I wished for. It's a blast to drive with 260 HP turbochraged engine having torque rating of 277lb-ft @2000-4800 rpm, and the 8.7 inches of ground clearance both of which make it is good enough for light offroading. The dual function X-MODE with deep snow/ mud setting can be changed according to the surrounding environment, and it's traction vectoring impressed me when I tried it in moderate muddy terrain. The drive is comfortable and compatible for both city roads and light offroading. 260 HP turbocharged Subaru BOXER Engine, Star Tex water repellent upholstery, 18 inch black finish alloy wheels, Hands free power rear gate and Hill Descnet Control are some features and equipments that come along this one. I like the minimal controls and their positioning across the dash. It has StarTex water repellant upholstery and 10 way power adjustable driver's seat with power lumbar support. It has 18 inch black finished aluminum alloy wheels along with R18 all season tires and crystal black silica finished folding side mirrors which acts as a flavor enhancer to prevalent athletic looks. The highlight safety features include Hill descent control, blindspot monitor with rear cross traffic alert and 180 degree front view monitor. The advanced airbags, cushoins, curtains, belts and latches are avilable for overall protection of each occupant, while various drive assist features like adpative cruise conntrol, lane departure, lane assist, pre-collision braking ensure safety of drive. I found it to be good in terms of reliability. Starting at $35,145, it's a good package. I had a bad experience here.

Blend of car and SUV

Pros - 1) Car like drive feeling, 2) Premium interiors, 3) Quiet compartment

Cons - 1) Less power

Being a good blend of SUV and car, I like it. Plus it's very safe, reliable and family friendly. The ride is comfortable and quiet with the soft suspension.Though I don't like CVT'S yet the transmission was responsive enough and didn't lag out. It gives a goodmix of car like ride feeling with the average off road capabilities. Nappa leather trimmed upholstery, power moonroof, heated steering wheel and ventilated front seats. The seats are nappa leather trimmed with front seats heated and ventilated. Heated steering wheel and shifting handle are wrapped up with leather. The 2 postion memory function is present for the driver's seat, and there is an 11.6 inch Multimedia Navigation display along with premium 12 speaker audio system. It has 18 inch machine finished aluminum alloy wheels with satin chrome finished power folding side mirrors, body colored door handles with chrome insert and a power moonroof which gives an elusive, yet sophisticated shiny touch to the rugged looks. It incorporates DriverFocus Distraction Mitigation System and Reverse Automatic braking along with vehicle control dynamics, symmetrical All Wheel Drive, Adaptive cruise control, lane departure and sway warnings and braking assist fetaures. The reliability of this Outback is good. Starting at $37,495, the price is worth consideration. I had a bad experience here.

Subaru Outback

Pros - Safety features, torque, towing capacity is decent

Cons - Interior

Subaru has become my fav. From the very day I first drove it off the dealership to this day, the driving dynamics have always impressed me and it has consistently outperformed all my expectations. The power on the go that too without jeopardizing the gas mileage. Overtaking someone is a breeze! And as far as the interior goes- I’m pretty satisfied with the interior and the infotainment features. The seats are comfortable and cup-holders are ample. That’s pretty much what I wanted. The transmission is smooth, quick, quiet, jerk-free, and miles better than the previous Outback had. wish I can give this place 0 ratings. They’re crooks. Do not buy from Ganley Subaru of Wickliffe.

A good but not great car.

Pros - Pretty affordable, great radio, good height of the vehicle

Cons - The design looks a bit cheap, Low torque on the engine, there is a weird sound when you push the gas pedal in the car, and increase the speed suddenly.

Go ahead if opting for a busget option. As mentioned previously, pretty low torque on the engine, and also the accleration is weak and makes weird noises, once I accelerate. Pretty standard ones. Although the budget factor of the car tallies with the range of features provided. One can't complain. Decent cabin space, due to the increased height of the car, and the seats are pretty good as well. The design feels cheap really, especially if I do not wash the car on every weekend, which is not always possible. Decent features offered. The usual ones.

Not a good offering by Subaru.

Pros - I found the car to offer great service in the winter conditions, the CVT transmission on the car is quite decent, also the mileage is decent.

Cons - The tehnological features and equipment look to be of a cheap quality, the engine is quite noisy, and I have also faced trouble with the exhaust system of the car.

Choose another. The engine is far too noisy, and also the exhaust system is continuously posing problems for me. Not at all satisfied by the service provided by the car. The infotainment feature and various other technology accompanying the car feels to be of a very cheap quality to me, and also some features do not work quite well. The handrests, and other interior accessories do not feel as premium as I thought it would, and also the entire cabin does not feel as sturdy enough as I expected. Decent design for the outback vehicle, and also a significant design upgrade on my previous vehicle. Very basic features. Not too out of the box of anykind. I have experienced some issues which have eroded my trust in the car, hence cannot be sure of the entire I got a pretty decent deal for the car in the Fairbanks, Alaska dealership os Subaru. Would recommend any potential buyer to opt for this dealership as the sales staff are extremely cooperative and helpful. reliability

Multifunctional Outback.

Pros - Great ground clearance, The AWD is quite smooth, and the eyesight safety technology is quite useful.

Cons - The start/stop button has so many problems, the brightness of the main center screen of the car is an issue, the glovebox compartment is tiny.

Great option for a large family. I feel the handling of the vehicle is really great, and also the car offers a smooth ride and a pleasant experience. Very good features provided with the vehicle, particularly the improvements in technology, and driving mechanics are commendable. Extremely comfortable seats, and extremely useful if you have toddlers as me. They just feel so comfortable inside the car. Decent design, just the plastic components in some parts could have been better. The Eyesight Safety Technology is pretty useful along with the other safety features provided with the vehicle. Pretty reliable. Had a decent experience with Subaru previously as stated, so I trust the The last time I bought an Outback was in 2011, and this time too, I opted for the same dealership in Jacksonville.

Adventure SUV

Pros - Spacious, Comfortable, and Convenient.

Cons - Dull Interior and exterior features.

I would buy it , probably in the near future cause there was a lot of cargo space that can have utility. If price is a issue one can go for lower trim. every drive is more enjoyable and relaxing. the most elegant feature that appealed to me was that in the base model AWD was available. Although the interior might look dull, it offers more passenger room than Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4, or Jeep Grand Cherokee. There? room for everyone? gear, too, with 32.5 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats. Available cargo area release levers make it even easier to fold the rear Available in 15 exterior colours and 3 interior colours. Here for low price there are sufficient amount of options to choose from. The Automatic Pre-Collision Braking feature can apply full braking force and bring you to a complete stop in emergency situations. Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control with Lane Centering can take some of the stress out of driving by helping with steering, braking, and throttle control both in daily traffic and on long road trips. As reliable as any other compact SUV in the US market I find the price good and the leasing and finance policies of Subaru are good. Outstanding

Family Cars

Pros - Impressive Cargo Space, Useful Raised Roof Rails with Enhanced Tie-Downs Points, heated and ventilated front seats

Cons - Dull Interior and exterior features, Braking distance is comparatively high, The steering is not easy to maneuver

I would buy it , probably in the near future cause there was a lot of cargo space that can have utility A fun to drive in both city as well as country. A STARLINK Multimedia system with Apple CarPlay?and Android Auto?integration comes standard on the 2021 Outback which is really awesome. Although many cars do have this feature but are not at the same price. Although Harmon Kardon Sound Surround system are no way near luxury they do a pretty good job as far as audio is concerned. I like the woofers on each doors. Available in 6 exterior and 1 interior colours. There are not too many choices in colours. The 2021 Outback features standard EyeSight Driver Assist Technology, which monitors traffic movement, optimizes cruise control, and warns you when you?e swaying outside your lane. I believe if one has no problem with the dull looks of this trim, he should find this car reliable. Not only the on road price but also the maintenance costs are cheaper than various car brands in the same segment. Outstanding

One tough family wagon

Pros - Rugged looks,good ground clearence,reliable

Cons - Misses out on some convinience features like electrically adjustible seats with heating function

Variety option in the crowd of wannabe's. Probably not the most fun to car drive car through tarmac.The engine is just adiquately powerful to keepup with traffic at higways speeds and thr ride feels a bitt jittery over potholes on high speed. Steering responsive LED headlamps,17" aluminium alloy, A comfortable and roomy cabin which has got all the practical bits correct. The car is rugged and modern but looks far too similar to it other siblings. Sure does have the modern assist features. These thing do run for a long time. $215/Month on a 36-Month Lease at $2,895 due at lease signing. good

The wagon of choise

Pros - Peppy engine,go anywhere attitude,practical

Cons - Engine is not the most refined,

For those who want a do everything family wagon. Last week I found the car to be a little unsettling at speeds due to the raised suspension setup.The car at times feels floating with a numb steering at high speed taking off that essential driving confidence.The true place where this car could shine would be on slight offroad routes. Leather trimmed upholstery,18" alloy wheels,handsfree tailgate The humongous touchscreen at the center was a bit unwanted for this car but essentialy adds a bit futuristic appeal to the interiors and also takes away from the ease of usability.Space and equipment are supplied lavishly. Family wagons dont get any macho than this one all thanks to that raised suspension and proper off road looking plastic black cladding surrounding the bottom and covering the wheel arches. Brochure says it has it all. Has a three year warranty as standard. NO t the most expensive wagon out there. good

The all-in-one trick

Pros - Good standard features list,spaceous interiors,camping friendly

Cons - Sluggish gearbox,similar in design to other sister cars,

A good and affordable camper vehicle. My Outback is the best camping car that we've bought.It has a commendable off road prowess with that easy to drive characteristic with ample amounts of comfort for my family on the harshesd of mountain roads. Raised roof rails,LED fog lights,windshield wiper de-icer Practcality and convenience is a huge parts of this cars cabin.Everything is laid out right where you want it to be.There is enough second row and cargo room on offer too It has the modern design touches with all though toughed-up stance giving it a true rally machine outlook. Think so. Rally spec reliablity. $30,000 price tag made it the pick of the lot for us. good

The Rugged family vehicle.

Pros - Generously equipped,modern looking interiors,somany convinience features

Cons - Engine feels overrevving at times due to CVT gearbox setup.

A standout family wagon with the heritage. This thing goes better on gravel roads than on tarmac,which is where Subi's where built to be driven.It is fun leaving trails of dusts behind you,blasting through those roads at moderate speeds.However the car could have used some more power ans a quicker responding gearbox to power those four wheels. Power tilt moon roof.dual zone A/C,Front seat asujustible lumbar support I am particularly not a huge fan of how the center console has a huge tuch screen at its center.Everything else feels tight and well built for what essentially is its purpose. Something which looks like it could be use as a post apocolyptic family vehicle. Good list of features. Not something to worry about as much as other brands. Just at the verge of being too expensive for a Subaru. Excellent

My new Subaru Outback!

Pros - Comfortable ride. Roomy interior. Good stereo system.

Cons - Complicated infotainment system. Intrusive driver assist systems. Simple interiors.

Practical Subaru station wagon. The Outback has definitely been a pleasure to drive on highways as well as loose roads because of the XT turbo engine. However, the one thing that quite botheres me while driving is the overly sensitive driving aids which keep on giving false beeps and tuts which is quite annoying at times. Besides, I have got quite a lot of compliments on the neat, contrast-stitching leather upholstery in the cabin. Harman Kardon sound system puts in great audio through the cabin. It definitely is a great station wagon with lots of comfort, space and The interior is big on space and comfort for my family. practicality for an adventure-loving family.

Pros - Quick smooth transmission inspite of CVT's, Powerful enough, Enhanced safety.

Cons - Not meant for hardcore offroading

A smooth drive. It's a blast to drive with 260 HP turbochraged engine having torque rating of 277lb-ft @2000-4800 rpm, and the 8.7 inches of ground clearance both of which make it is good enough for light offroading. / mud setting can be changed according to the surrounding environment, and it's traction vectoring impressed me when I tried it in moderate muddy terrain.

Pros - Safety, effortless drive

Cons - I dislike nothing

A car worth buying in every aspect. I like the immediate engine response and maneuverability! It is a good family hauler. I've never had problems with it except the mpg. The brakes are very nice and can stop from triple digit speeds very quickly. The rear camera and parking sensor The Interior is pretty spacious. I have long legs but there's plenty of space. It is more stylish than my previous car but is not as practical as the later. I feel very safe driving the car. Everything feels sturdy. I trust this car more than I trust myself sometimes. Totally worth the money! The best dealership experience ever! Love the people there.

2021 Subaru

Pros - Cargo space, sporty interior, peppy engine

Cons - Mileage could be better

Looking for a reliable car than this is the car you should buy. I love the way this car drives. It fits into every single spot, has great brakes. Even when going fast on the highway it doesn’t seem like the car is working too hard, all thanks to its engine which is a gem. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. As I said earlier, it is very roomy for a vehicle of this category. The seats are comfortable and have good room for feet. The front fascia is the best looking. It is very attractive and bold if you ask me. It is a solid car. It has all the necessary safety features. The car has a solid engine and a good build quality. I think I paid an average amount for the features I got. Everyone was super nice and helpful.

2021 Outback

Pros - Stylish, spacious, airy

Cons - Mediocre interior quality, auto start/stop

I would definitely recommend this car! It is the best purchase I have ever made. Outback has a smooth ride to it. It gets up to speed fast and great gas mileage. It is a good family traveling car because of the extra room it offers inside it. The infotainment is good and easy to use. I love the interior. It is miles better when compared to other vehicles I’ve been in. It is airy, spacious, and comfortable. Has more features than I’d ever use. I bought it for its reliability and safety, and not for its styling. It has a number of safety features to keep me safe. Features like airbags, rear camera, parking sensors, etc. So far no issues. I believe that this car is priced a little high but the safety you get with this vehicle it's a win-win! The salesman was very polite and honest. He answered all of our questions. It was an amazing experience.

Subaru's perfection on display

Pros - Everything like the all weather driveability and turbo

Cons - Well thought out

I'm positive we have a long way ahead of us before we really think about trading it off with a new car With the kind of perfection subaru has displayed to make the outback onyx look premium, they have done a better job putting all the strands together under the hood. Has everything needed for daily driving and in right proportions. I guess the fact that I thought I overpaid for the suv is because of it's capability to drive throughout the year no matter how bad the weather is The interiors of our subaru make it look and feel even more expensive than it actually is. We did see different trim lines at the dealership and loved this one The quality of the interior and the material used makes it one luxurious suv to own I trust it and I know it's going to keep us safe if anything was to happen out there on the road Subaru onyx has the best interiors and even better driving Pricing didn't feel justified at first but now I get it. All the bells whistles are on board for the money we put into it Got what we want at just the price. I'm glad they had different trim levels and we were able to pick one for us

More of a city driver

Pros - Paddles, practical powerband, mpg

Cons - Needs a little more juice, Needs better tires, Needs full size spare tire

For a city dweller, outback is going to be the best car considering how good it drives in traffic Although it has all the bells and whistles to look like a nimble adventurer, under the skin, it is a family hauler, rather a good one. The powerband, and mpg it pulls off at the end of the day makes me say that. First off, it needs better tires, or should I say, more choices to choose from along with full size spare. Love the paddle shifters but a little more juice to the wheels should do good Needs more legroom in second row instead of huge cargo space Subaru's design always features a natural skeekiness and Outback here is no different No problems with the features or driving dynamics. Sure deserves better tires though Not so hard on pocket and only asks for timely maintenance Got a deal of $530/m at the lowest cash down and apr The salesrep seemed to be a nice guy and gave us time to actually reconsider our decisions

Pros - Cabin, center screen, CD player

Cons - Expensive accessories, remote start isn't standard

A nice piece of daily driving at just a little elevated price Even if it was to drive crazy, I'd still love it for the way it looks from behind the wheel The accessories like rear entertainment system and wireless charging costs an arm and a leg. Glad cd player came along in standard equipments Tan leather cushy seats. So much cushioning underneath always ensures comfort. The center screen always looks in limelight and gives it a nice premium character too Love how the cabin looks. Tan leather seats treated well with other aspects of the car Every Outback model has had 5 star crash test ratings because of host of driver assisted and safety features and superb built quality Needs reworked pricing for options and accessories for sure. Decent amount of standard features and exorbitant packages and accesssories The overall experience was fruitful but dragged out

Made to tread on any gradient

Pros - Powerful, fuel tank size, smart pedals

Cons - This artificial CV transmission and ground clearance

Never felt like our first subaru. We got used to it way too easily than we expected Power and safety go side by side in my new Outback. With a tad less engaging drive experience because of the artificial like transmission, there is nothing else which feels out of line They call it smart pedals and I think I now know why they do. It cuts off the throttle when it senses the foot weight on the brake pedal. Could mean a big difference on road Nice headroom for taller people like me. I'm 6.1 and always happen to be comfortable on driver and passenger seat Maybe the ground clearance is what has been compromised because of this dragged out desig We have smart pedals for that This is our first Subaru and I think it has to prove itself in this area Not as great as brands like Toyota and Honda in terms of resale value As a new Subaru buyer, they were extremely helpful and informative!!

Value for money buy Outstanding value. Many safety characteristics that are not usually offered at this price. Good SUV fuel mileage. Love manipulation, all driving wheel. Like speeding, slowing down in comparison with every Toyota. Nicely designed interior. Strong lasting heavy gel vs. camry or corolla. Wide, is designed. Spacious. Cori was able to make one of the most effortless new car transactions I've ever experienced.

Cons - Not meant for hardcore offroading

Not for offroading The handling is awesome but the main issue is that I have a difficulty driving this car on hills and its crawl control feature is also not working at the level it should. Surely this car is not meant for off road driving. It does the pare in highway driving and daily commutation. The store workman made us wait too long and experienced the late service.Finally, the experience with them is not bad

Cons - Not meant for hardcore offroading

I tend to like it as it has proved optimum in every aspect I wished for. I've been driving my 2020 Outback for a few weeks now and can't believe what a really great car it is! I took one long trip and the driver assist features are out of this world. Excellent sound quality and the technology features are really amazing. Lastly, I can't say enough about the dealership and they way they have treated me through the whole process! Just superior service all the way! There technical training was excellent and the incentive (financial) to study up and come back for more training and question and answer sessions was really cool! Satisfied with the services

Pretty good

Pros - The powertrain is smooth, the design is modern

Cons - No standard Moonroof

Outback is outperforming the competition Even with a 2.5L motor and a CVT in the name of transmission Outback has left me impressed with its performance. Its performance has left me wondering if this is an engine tuned for performance and not for a family hauler. The only requirement I had with the interior was the space and on that front Outback has outdone me. The interior is spacious and the seats are well cushioned. On top of that, the dashboard design is neat. Really happy with the motor so far! This was the smoothest car purchase I ever had. All went quick and easy. I was in and out with my new car in a span of few hours. Highly recommend Subaru of Orange Park.

2020 Subaru Outback!

Pros - Competent off-road. High tech features. Spacious rear seat.

Cons - Sluggish CVT. Outdated exteriors.

The family wagon from Subaru! Its been more than a year driving the Outback over long distances and I must say, it is a great family wagon. I use it primarily to go on fishing trips or camping upstatealmost every once in a while. It comes eqipped with lot ofr driving assists that are absolurtely necessary once I hit the highways. Also the infotainment system sounds just perfect making it apt for long trips. The comfy rear seats and big cargo hold makes my Outback the most spacious It does handle loose gravel/broken roads quite easily. Thanks to the more powerful turbo engine I chose! family car I have ever driven!

Cons - Nothing

I was looking for a vehicle with SUV-like practicality and sedan-like gas mileage and driving dynamics. Outback was the clear and only choice. Glad I went with this instead of gas guzzler SUVs. I was looking for a vehicle with SUV-like practicality and sedan-like gas mileage and driving dynamics. A hands-free power tailgate is very convenient to have. It is the perfect long trips family hauler. It has more than enough space for luggage and has plenty of legroom and headroom. It also has plenty of little storage cubbies. Some people don’t like it but I do. It is beautiful! Absolutely amazing body lines and headlights are the best. Lane keep assist, automatic pre-collision braking, adaptive cruise control with lane centering. I can keep going but you get the picture. It has been working better than I expected. How? Buy it and you will know .(hint: gas mileage) Yes, you can buy a good SUV at this price but I didn’t want an SUV. Great experience and amazing people. I wouldn’t go anywhere else. They went above and beyond to fulfil all my needs

Great family hauler

Pros - Ride quality, navigation, climate control

Cons - Infotainment is complicated to use

Looking for a safe, reliable, and great on gas vehicle which is fun to drive. Well, look no more Outback here is the perfect vehicle that meets all those conditions and then some. It has been more than 5 months since I bought it and it has been excellent all this time. Looking for a safe, reliable, and great on gas vehicle which is fun to drive. An 11.6-inch infotainment screen! I absolutely love the interior. It is so comfortable! Even though the infotainment is a little confusing to use but I’m getting used to it. Autumn green metallic color brings out the best of Outback Outback is an IIHS 2020 top safety pick+. All I’m trying to say is: It’s safe! Reliability has never been an issue with Subaru, that’s why so many people love it I’m happy with the deal. It is well worth the money. This is hands down the best experience I have ever had in a dealership. Highly recommend them.

Couldn’t be happier

Pros - Smooth drive, nice infotainment, comfortable interior

Cons - Road noise

I love this car. It is great on all fronts. It is fun to drive and is also economical. The engine is refined and power delivery is smooth with no road noise whatsoever. I love this car. It is great on all fronts. It is fun to drive and is also economical. Keyless access and push button start are new to me but I got used to them quickly. Now I can’t imagine buying a vehicle without them Comfortable, feature loaded, and has nice materials. Subaru’s new Starlink infotainment is very easy to use and is very intuitive. The screen is big and responsive. It is not a head turner but it definitely is good looking. It misses out on nothing. With their EyeSight technology, Subaru has once again proven its commitment to safety. There is little road noise and nothing else A great vehicle at a great price It was a pleasant experience. Will definitely come back to get a new car

A complete package

Pros - Turbo, AWD, cargo space

Cons - Climate control is not very good, Auto start/stop

Love the driving dynamics. The power, handling, transmission, everything. Subaru’s boxer engine with a turbo is the perfect motor for all events. Love the driving dynamics. The power, handling, transmission, everything. Subaru’s infotainment is the best I have used. Big cargo space was the biggest requirement I had about the interior which it has. Not the best looking but that doesn’t matter much. Subaru has everything else at its side. It’s a Subaru! So nothing to worry about. Auto start/stop is annoying but apart from that No Issues Lower trims offer more value for your money. Bunch of crooks. These people care about money and money alone. Do not buy from this dealership

Subaru still fancies boxers

Pros - Eye sight driver assist, hands free tailgate, boxer engine

Cons - Nothing I can think of

All praises to its boxer 4 cylider, outback is able to deliver that lateral acceleration. The wider setup of boxer engine sits lower on the chasis creating a tremedous effect on the handling as well. The subtle steering response of outback is the living proof we have. All praises to its boxer 4 cylider, outback is able to deliver that lateral acceleration. The wider setup of boxer engine sits lower on the chasis creating a tremedous effect on the handling as well. Hands free tailgate. While rest of the world is setting up with a foot unlocking method, Subaru has come up with yet another new idea for opening tailgate. I like its precision and never misses to sense the hand gesture. I like how complete interiors have been designed with modern aspect yet sticking to the user friendly setup. Front seats have power adjustable feature standard which saves a lot of energy while trying to hold that pinpoint perfect position(My son as well drives it). Leather wrapped steering wheel adds to the neat interiors while serving its purpose of providing better grip. Moving to the second row, offers decent amount of room for legs and head clearance as well. Lot of space in the cargo and if it is not enough, 60/40 rear seats do help with that. The silver chrome lining running along the window border maybe doesn't get noticed at first but unknowingly creates an appealing impression in mind. The DRLs in those orthodox triangular headlight shaped similarly go well with the chrome lining of the mesh grille. A bigger spoiler would have improved the design even more I believe. My Subaru Outback has a lot of active as well as passive safety features and I personally like all of them. Taking about the eyesight driver assist, its a breakthrough made by Subaru and I don't think any other make is offering that. With this feature, I feel extra safe in my Outback knowing I have an extra pair of eyes on the road and if needed, another foot on the brake pedal. I have actually read a lot about this feature and seems like it has actually proven to be effective as reported by many owners. With 3 years of warranty on Outback, thats not something to be worried about. Well for this one particular, we leased it a decent monthly payments of $372 for 4 straight years. They reworked the monthly lease payments to what we asked for.

Better than expected

Pros - Comfort, AWD, reliability

Cons - 2nd row is little tight

I love this car. This is my first Subaru and it didn’t disappoint. What a great experience it has been driving this day in and day out. The ride is smooth and comfortable. Handling is better than it should be. It feels compact even though it is comparable to a mid-size SUV which is amazing. Very easy to maneuver. The power is very adequate. It doesn’t have to be fast.

There is plenty of storage space for all the things, cargo is very big, and infotainment is very easy to use. The 2nd row is a little tight for people over 6”. Other than that very well thought out design I really like the design. It is a perfect blend of subtle and aggressive. It doesn’t look like a soccer mom or granny car anymore. Subaru claims they make some of the safest cars and I believe them so far not a single issue A whole lot of machine for the money Very friendly and courteous staff. Easy to deal with.

Pros - Infotainment screen, quiet, solid build quality

Cons - None so far

Outback rides and handles like a dream. Does what exactly it is designed to. You know what is surprising that there are no surprises in how it drives. It is exactly how to expect a wagon to be. The power is not off the charts but is enough for the daily commute and long trips on motorways. It is very comfortable to drive even for hours at a time. Outback rides and handles like a dream.

Value for money and fun to drive

Pros - Engine, driving experience, spacious

Cons - Mpg, visibility

I had a 2016 Outback and I was very happy with that. In the 4 years that I had that there were no problems whatsoever. It was very reliable. I traded that for the new 2020 Outback and the new one has so many advantages over the old one. It is faster, more comfortable, and has all the modern safety features. All is not roses though. There are some drawbacks too like the turbo lag but once it gets going it shows its true powers. I had a 2016 Outback and I was very happy with that.

Harman Kardon premium audio system and 4G LTE wi-fi capability Compared to the old one the interior also are very well put together. It has all you will ever want or need. The Harman Kardon speaker system is amazing. The sound quality is superb. Subaru is a smart company and knows it is not wise to change what is working for them. The design is similar to my 2016 Outback which is a good thing. There are some small differences but it looks really similar to the previous one. 5-start rating in all safety tests. What else is there to think My previous Outback ran for 4 years without any problems and I know it will be same. The fuel economy is a low than expected but not a deal breaker Even fully loaded Outback at around $40k is a bargain. The salesperson was very sweet and knowledgeable but the finance team are a bunch of crooks

Has what most of the Crossovers miss

Pros - Mileage, good in city, chrome door handles and mirrors

Cons - Just steering mounted buttons

Subaru Outback despite being good in size doesn't lack practicality by any means. Jacked up in looks and mileage, it enjoy to roll in city and helps with numerous features to make every drive intresting and hassle free. Subaru Outback despite being good in size doesn't lack practicality by any means. Not sure about optional stuff but has many features which are new to me. Tan and black blended in together with perfection is how interiors look. Comfortable? Ofcourse. My only concern is the buttons on the steering wheel which don't sound premium when pressing. Might sound weird but I've always wanted my vehicle to have chrome door handles and side mirrors and I must admit, I got exactly what I wanted. No frills. Safety ratings for Subaru vehicles have always been fairly impressive. Outback doesn't seem to break this streak and stays in the list of safe crossover's to drive around in. Looks good to me till now Less than 400 a month for leasing, driving aroud in Subaru has never been so pocket friendly I think. Google reviews seemed too good to be true at first until I experienced their best service first hand

Pros - Safety, appearance, practicality

Cons - Driver screen, less hard buttons

If power is not your priority and you don’t want those flashy and somewhat unsafe SUVs then Outback is just for you. It is designed to be a daily commuter. Everything about it screams “Family vehicle”. Be it the design or interiors, safety or reliability, and even the power. Everything is designed keeping the needs of a family in mind.

It is very well designed. It has all the modern safety features, all of which are standard and you don’t have to pay a single dollar extra It is Subaru and it will run for ages without a single problem Best family vehicle at this price point without a doubt Worst car buying experience ever.

Uninterrupted driving/riding quality

Pros - Side mirror approach light, noisefree driving, center console

Cons - Armrest, glovebox size, and turbo lag

Our new Subaru outback drives calm like a 500 year old monk. Not to mention, doesn't feel underpowered at all because of impecabble throttle response. Although turbo results in typical desync between pedal and tire, but ends up with not so bad mileage for such size and power. Outback may be many things but not a bad choice. Although turbo results in typical desync between pedal and tire, but ends up with not so bad mileage for such size and power. Outback may be many things but not a bad choice. Just approach lights on side mirrors useful in dark conditions costing me $242. Interiors are neatly laid out and nicely sealed which keeps most of the road and engine noise out of the cabin. Center console on the other hand looks quite premium and limelight of overall interiors merging with touch screen. Armrest could have been more generous with the size though Horizontal front grille sitting beneath the Subaru emblem makes it stand out among all other cars on road. Rocker panel comes with moldings and Outback badging leaving no space for improvement on sides. Tail lights take care of rear fascia Rear view images looks even better on the such big touch screen and at the same time, it keeps an eye on road as well as driver and senses if the driving patterns change and then encourages to take rest if so. I'll call that pretty safe Crossing 4k miles in it has rooted many questions about reliability. Built quality seems to be excellent and so does the gas mileage. $39grand including everything. In & out hasslefree experience

Blacked out facade

Pros - Alloy wheels, blacked out exteriors, seats

Cons - Glossy center console, roof rails, rear visibility

Onxy edition comes with a blacked out appearance all over and trust me when I say this, looks way better than other trims and has a huge road presence. Coming back to driving dynamics, I finally went for Outback after test driving a few other vehicles in the same range which had one or the other thing missing. Onyx trim covers just about the good parts of all aspects which a car should have. Coming back to driving dynamics, I finally went for Outback after test driving a few other vehicles in the same range which had one or the other thing missing. Onyx trim covers just about the good parts of all aspects which a car should have. Remote start and push button, 11.6'' starlink screen, power moonroof, and reverse sensing system with auto brakes. The foremost appealing of Onyx edition trim is the way interiors have been designed. Bucket front seats with green stitching complements the exteriors and brings in even more premium-ish feel. Rest of the interiors appear dark although chrome has been precisely used around vents and handles on door panels. The center console( around gear stick) has a fingerprint friendly gloss and I don't like it I'm afraid. Although it looks like Subaru has tried to burnish the interiors which they even succeeded in except the center console which looks more like overdone. Surely this much makeup was not necessary there. Well not much has changed lately in the design and styling of Outback which still looks refreshing. Talking about Onyx trim, it comes with a blackedout exteriors which make it stand out among other trims. No sign of chrome anywhere on the body kind of styling is what makes it look stunning. Subaru cars have always had up to date features on board and that's the main reason their vehicles are doing good. Outback also carries the legacy having fancy features like sway warnings and stuff motivates to drive safer and also takes care of a few things causing most number of accidents on roads. For instance, lane assist which doesn't let the car drive off in adjacent lanes without using blinkers is a very calculated step towards safety. That bumps up the safety many folds in my opinion. A few minor repairs and oil changes although were required, reliability in general has been pretty good so far. I can recall, good paint quality, fit finish and gas average other than minor issues which I don't think should be kept in mind while judging a car. As low as $535/m for 60 months of tenure. Daniela was nice and knowledgeable. She knew what we actually wanted and suggested us this trim

Outback has quite refined engine

Pros - Handling, no vibrations even at high speeds, CD player

Cons - Instrument cluster feels jammed

Outback is no small car and laying eyes on one locks the statement. Handling feels so precise and smooth even in low speeds which is something I've not had in my previous cars. Steering wheels feels firm with almost no vibrations even over 80 mph. Outback is no small car and laying eyes on one locks the statement. Handling feels so precise and smooth even in low speeds which is something I've not had in my previous cars. Wireless charging pad in center console and chrome trim on the tailgate right between the tail lights. Everything else comes in standard in XT trim. The interiors have a nice ambience all over because of the tan seats and dash trim. Center stack looks absolutely stunning and Cd player is what made us shortlist it. Just two minor issues though, instrument cluster should have been bigger than the current cramped up size. I also hate it when gear stick has hand prints due to extra glossy knob. Dual tone brown/dark gray tone on the outside where fenders flares, side moldings and bumpers have porpoise tone, rest of the body shines in chocolate shade. Talking about design, Subaru has this distinct design language which flicks in all of their vehicles. Excellent in other words. I always feel safe while driving because of two prime reasons. 5 stars rating on window sticker for safety and multiple safety features on board along with a few fancy driver assisting ones. It's commendable how Subaru has managed to give XT trims a bump in power by pairing it with a turbocharger and still have an impressive mileage on ground level. Not sure if its a sign of good reliability but I will take it. $7K downpayment and rest of the amount as a monthly installment of $579. Easy one day buying process. It was my first experience with A&T and they made sure I only speak good words about them.

Outback's great gas mileage

Pros - Fuel conscious, 11.6'' touch screen, keyless entry

Cons - Blind spot not standard.

Drives great without having to gas up at every second filling station. Responds well to acceleration with linear power and keeps most of the engine and road noise out. Feels planted to the road despite its dominating height. Drives great without having to gas up at every second filling station. Has a good number of needful features and even the extra ones. We had to pay extra for blind spot, lane and CTA which are provided separately. Apart from this, added wireless charging for a few hundred dollars for my husband. The best part about the interiors no doubt would be the 11.6'' touch screen with Macbook interface which is so easy to use and looks very luxurious. With all this, its nice that Subaru didn't dump the traditional knobs fo volume and other buttons. Although most of the infotainment features are controlled through the touch screen only, it still looks real with the volume knobs. Talking about the comfort, well this station wagon does have surprises here as well and provides sheer comfort along with heated seats which comes handy for the place we're from. The cloth trim on the other hands looks way better than how cloth seats are perceived. Designed in such a way that it senses other dimensional objects as well. Be aware sometimes these objects are bigger resulting in damaging the windshield. What I don't understand is why Subaru didn't care to make blind spot, lane change assist and CTA standard. Outback has been designed as a practical family vehicle yet lacks on most important safety features. Had to pay an extra grand to have them added. I'm fortelling a good & reliable Outback. I hope I don't turn to be wrong. 31 thousand dollars(a few hundred more I believe). Would have been the best buy ever if we didn't have to pay for the safety features which should be standard at the first place. N/A

Subaru Outback 2020 is even better than the previous models.

Pros - Starlink screen, clever features, safety

Cons - No

Wonderful. We traded our 2014 outback and went straight to 2020 model without thinking about any other car. Runs smooth and sufficient for our family. Me and my wife drove the previous one for 7 years almost and still lack any complains for it. One more reason to go for Subaru was because of level of safety they provide in their vehicles. Wonderful. We traded our 2014 outback and went straight to 2020 model without thinking about any other car. Runs smooth and sufficient for our family. Clever features as per the practicality for instance, the rear trunk net closes when pushed by hand or elbow. The tailgate opens in all new style by waving the hand over the lock. The all new 12'' tablet touch screen is unique with buttons for a few other features like defroster. The nappa leather seats and arm rests feel great. The console on the other hand has a dual tone contrast with hard plastic on the top. Almost everything can be controlled from the star link screen which is very responsive and doesn't lag at all. Offers a lot of space around and accomodates us along with anything we're carrying. Best selling wagon. The DRL's on this new 2020 looks way better than any other car in this price bracket. Also the horizontal hexagonal signature grille from Subaru look refreshing although I don't think they have changed that. One of the reasons why we went for Outback again without thinking twice. Tons of safety features are included in Outback included the new added one. The reverse automatic braking system is new, Lane keeping assist and cross traffic warning, blind spot and basic one like airbags, ABS etc. We appreciate that Subaru didn't stop here and took it a little higher by providing Focus mitigation and adaptive cruise control with sway warnings. They certainly know what their customers want. As mentioned, our last Outback made a very impression about Subaru for us. We drove it for 7 years and never faced any major issues. I would not say it never broke down but I've seen vehicles asking for fortune for their repairs. Thankfully not ours. This one has been driving great as well since the day we got it. For $38k it is a whole lot of car Great customer service and honest salesmanship. Got the car I was looking for at a great price.

Big and practical Subaru that would fit your bill.

Pros - Nice leather seats, handy backup camera, easy phone connectivity

Cons - Slightly upright rear seats, middling gas mileage

Family wagon. A perfect family hauler in my opinion! Got the full blown trim at $35,446; $1500 staright off from the original msrp. Optional brown leather seats feel so good to sit on, especially with that heating function for those cold winters. The phone intergration app works seamlessly with my 3 year old iPhone 7. Though it may seem big, it feels as easy as to drive as our previous car, a 2013 Fusion. My 42 year old wife thinks the same. The big screen rear parking display is a life saver in tight parking spots as my wife has a tendancy to ram it into something when backing up; nice feature- saves me lot of repair cost! I have never owned a Subaru previously. Thanks to derrick, the purchase was a painless process. Still learning about the manty features that he had hown me while at the dealrship.

My 2019 Subaru Outback

Pros - Comfortable driving position. Standard AWD. Stellar features list.

Cons - Slow accleration. Subpar warranty.

The station wagon with a go-anywhere attitude! Even with a SUV-like ground clearance, it still is station wagon at heart. The driving position is quite comfortable, offering good visibilty. Plus, the complete suite of driver-assistance features only makes the car confident to drive. It also includes plenty upscale features like heated front seats, dual-zone climate control and even a 8-inch touchscreen system. Storage spaces is sufficiently abundant, both in the cargo and cabin. The only thing I wished for was a strong, more powerful engine with a flair. The slow acceleration literally makes me want to kill myself especially during the highway pass struggles! I had a great experience buying my Subaru Outback. The satff were quite helpful, courteous and quite loving with my little girls! A great place for new Subarus!

Blend of car and SUV

Pros - Car like drive feeling,Premium interiors,Quiet compartment

Cons - Less power

Being a good blend of SUV and car, I like it. Plus it's very safe, reliable and family friendly. I previously owned a Subaru Outback for 15 years. Love their reliability in all kinds of weather. My dogs love it and I loved it. So bought a 2019 Subaru Outback. Love the lumbar support and comfortable ride, adaptive cruise control and blind spot monitoring. Also, the power tailgate. It is a little higher than the old 2003 Subaru, and I like that too. Easier to get in also. Waiting area is really well furnished and staff are really good.

A top-rated wagon

Pros - Airey cabin with large and comfortable seats, good presicted reliabiltiy

Cons - Pricey trim,not as equipped as competition

A simple family wagon with great dependability. I did go for the Outback as some of my friends suggested it to me. I needed something less flashy and relaible to haul my family in and found this wagon as a good buy. We did go for one of the top trims, but now comparing it with other cars of same price, it seems to be down on tech. But one place where it stands out is in the interior and cargo spaces, which was of the primary concern to me. This car is easy to look after and there is nothing much to go wrong in this one. The seats are super comfortable and accomdating. The engine performance seems apt for the cities and the acceleration is pretty linear but the engine does seem to scream if you try to push it down the highways. Got a great deal on out outback from Clark at Peninsual Subaru.

Decent for the price.

Pros - Very quite, spacious and great gas mileage

Cons - Infotainment should be upgraded.

A good but not great car. I really liked the silent cabin, decent priced and responsive engine of the outback and I enjoy the seats but I do have one complaint that subaru should do something about the sunroof which gives a glare its really comfortable in the second row and spacious cabin, to the infotainment system.

A good machine

Pros - Gas mileage, fun to drive, driving dynamics, spacious and airy interior

Cons - Seats are hard, style/looks, wheels

The good and the bad The seats are grey leather that looks very pretty and nicely cushioned to give more comfort. The airy cabin is although the last thing I'll ever say about my Outback and limited headroom is the foremost reason for that. And on top of that, the seats are hard and uncomfortable, especially for long trips. People at First Team Subaru Suffolk know their way around cars and have a hassle free process unlike other dealerships who make you go around in loops just to be able to drive in a new car. Wonderful experience and highly recommended dealership

i love Subaru Outback

Pros - Ride quality, cargo space,crash scores

Cons - Poor rear visibilty and low quality interior plastics

good reliable family vehicle with good safety features It provides an impressively smooth and comfortable ride to date. My good service record made this happen and the reliability of the vehicle is good. The four-wheel antilock disc brakes, traction, and stability control are the most practical safety essentials that come within. But the interior plastic quality is poor and the rear visibility of the vehicle is bad. The dealership experience is also good in my case.

Out in the Outback

Pros - Spruced up controls, All Wheel Drive.

Cons - Average ride handling,

A great vehicle for the price paid. Very happy with this car mainly because I have 6 cyl. version. Therefore no issues with acceleration. 10 way power driver seat, V6 power when I need it, Lots of safety features such as lane departure warning, low speed front and reverse crash warning. Blind spot detection warning. AWD system does have some jerky shifting at low speeds. Nav/Info/Entertaintment screen sometimes goes blank. But overall, very happy with this car. It is the top trim, so Im not sure I would feel the same with the lower trims. Overall a really good host and servicing.

The standard affair

Pros - Huge cargo, supple ride quality, good safety ratings

Cons - The engine does struggle to get going on full load

A straight forward wagon and a peace of mind purchase. This car is perfect for people who love everything simple and easy. Unlike most of the cars I took for testdrive, this one feels more direct and less gimmicky. Everything is exactly placed where you want it to be and is easily in reach. I also felt that this one is the most comfortable to ride as well. I must say the cabin is quite roomy compared to our Buick and the cargo hold is absolutely humongous. My family of five, travels to most place in this car and everyboy is pleased with the comfort. One thing I did notice is that, the car does seem to struggle to get a move one when fully loaded as when compared to driving alone. I am not that satisfies with the service team. It took them almost two days to fect a new wheel speed sensor and my car spent almost two days at their workshop.

My family wagon

Pros - Comfortable. Cargo space. AWD.

Cons - Slow base engine. Quite expensive bigger engine.

Not the driver's station wagon! I traded my old Legacy for the new Outback back in 2018. I liked the 6-cylinder engine more for the power bump but the $7k bump in pricing seemed a lot for me. Nothing out of the ordinary to speak. The seats are comfortable enough for city commutes or even long trips. Having used the Legacy sedan, the cargo space definitely has been a major increase in the Outback. Everything else on the Outback is just average family material. Although AWD is standard, I wish the base engine was atleast offered with a manual gearbox to feel more drive-worthy!

Nice

Pros - Roomy, reliable

Cons - None

Love my Outback I love my 2017 Outback. I purchased a new one in February 2017 and this was my first Subaru. It did not disappoint. I have been driving it for more than 3 years now and it is just as exciting as the day I drove it off the lot. The interior is what impresses me most, the convenient shelf for my sunglasses and extras. The very large console for my purse, leather seats, cabin lights, sunroof and the blind spot monitoring are its best features to me. Several times the blind spot monitoring has alerted me to a child on a bike or walking on the sidewalk as I'm pulling out. Had I bought a Chevy or Ford, all these features would have cost me more than $7,000 easily.

A safe, sturdy and comfortable machine.

Pros - Practical, comfortable, relaible

Cons - No rear climate controls, seats get dirty quite fast

Long runner. A zero doubt purchse. Looks apart, frugal engine and very comfortable! Standard all wheel drive for that added safety in the winter. $27,675 is a very justifiable sticker price. Go to the right dealer and you could easily get a grand knocked of this as well! Got my oil changed in a jiffy! Barman was such a nice lead at the service station;Extremly quick in getting the works done!

Outback!!

Pros - Looks, comfortable, Versatility

Cons - Pickup, design

OUTBACK!! When we compare Outback to its competition head-on it becomes clear that Outback definitely is not the fastest SUV, in fact, it feels underpowered if anything else. Even if this is not the fastest SUV or the craziest when it comes to driving but it sure is a good everyday driver and an SUV people like me, father of two, will really appreciate. As it is easy to steer and control. The accelerator is very responsive and so are the brakes. Excellent they helped us out a lot and were willing to work with our unique situation

A budget off-roader!

Pros - Capable on off-road. Fuel-efficient. Advanced safety tech.

Cons - Relaibility issues. Boring powertrain. Cheap interior plastics.

Lucky if you escape the Subaru's bad relaibility saga! What suprised me the mosyt about the Outback is how much capable it is at tackling bad or broken moderate off-road trails, even with a less powerful engine. The AWD system on it really is worthy of a mention. The engine is fuel-efficient atleast which quite negates the boring, slow attribute. However, recently I have been facing an electrical drain issue. Its only been two years since I got sranded down a highway because of a failed alternator. Now, the electrical drain issue leaves the car dead during a cold start. This ultimately resulted in change of the main battery! Probably a disadvantage to having too many electronics messing your car! The service team gets the repair job done with a very clean, diligent approach. The front office team is equally courteous and transparent with the pricing! Honest bunch of folks!

The Rugged family vehicle.

Pros - Generously equipped,modern looking interiors,somany convinience features

Cons - Engine feels overrevving at times due to CVT gearbox setup.

A standout family wagon with the heritage. So far, soooo goood !!! I had to order this vehicle as dealers do not stock them. It is the touring edition of the outback. For the styling, amenities, and towing capability, you cannot beat it. I would have paid much more for a comparable vehicle in a different make. I am extremely impressed by the luxury and overall durability this car offers. I am very pleased with my purchase. The gas mileage has be averaging about 30 mpg which is awesome for its size. I have owned very many new vehicles over the years, but this Outback has impressed me the most!! GO SUBARU! Excellent services

Excellent safety features, great handling and acceleration, quality and reliability are tops! I bought a car from Gurly Leep almost 2 years ago, and was very unhappy with my customer service and decided I wouldn't go back. but recently I was wondering if possibly things have changed, I stopped in to a sale going on to look

An SUV with issues!

Pros - Spacious, Bluetooth, cargo

Cons - Rough ride, noisy, uncomfortable

Sometimes its amazing and other times its meh A smooth, quiet, and easy to control drivetrain. In short, the driving dynamics of Outback are excellent and I don’t think there is anything to talk about a 2.5L engine. The interior, on the other hand, is okay-ish at best nothing extraordinary. It looks and feels like any other run-of-the-mill SUV in its competition. So, if the interior is one of your priorities you should explore other options. Great and trusting gave me a great discount and very friendly

2016 Outback

Pros - Powerful engine. Excellent visibility. Safety features.

Cons - Bigger engine option only on top trim. Simple interiors.

Flawless performance! This Subaru has been my trusted, reliable comapnion for countless road trips. It definitely is a capable vehicle if you want a decent adventurous vehicle at a modest price. The 6-cylinder mill is better by leaps and bounds than the dull base engine but is only offered with top trim. The engine in conjuction with higher ground clearance, good visibility and the X-Mode make it a suitable off-roader too. The Outback has taken me and through some of the beautiful national parks and offroad trails without an issue. It also feels great on the long highways with enough mettle to maintain highway speeds. The advance safety features standard on the topmost trim is definitely a great value addition! Quite a happy Outback customer! Buying experience here was an unforgettable one . I really wanted the 6-cylinder mill on my Outback but the sales executive kept pushing for the base engine, probably to push the holed up stock. I had to wait for a good week to get the delivery of the trim i wanted! Never set a foot again after that!

The wagon of choise

Pros - Peppy engine,go anywhere attitude,practical

Cons - Engine is not the most refined,

For those who want a do everything family wagon. This is my first Subaru, purchased in Nov. 2015. I love the great visibility, power driver's seat, dual climate control, heated front seats, larger touchscreen, locking glove compartment, comfortable seat, pull away roof rails. I had the option of not getting a sunroof, which I didn't want. I also love the cargo space and the rear seats fold down from levers in the rear. Attractive exterior and interior, larger gas tank than other similar models in other brands. Gets good gas mileage and drives well. Currently have around 47,000 miles on it. There's not much I don't love about it. Plan to keep it for a long time. A great sales experience from John

Underpowered and sluggish

Pros - The AWD really helps in driving safely as it grips the road quite well

Cons - "Very underpowered engine and the design could also have been a lot better"

Weak engine equipped wagon The engine inside the Outback feels terribly underpowered and also this wagon isn't at all speedy and driving it on the freeways could feel highly cumbersome The entire dealership felt like a carnival of sorts with different agents and salesmen constantly badgering you to buy certain brands over others.

Go-anywhere wagon

Pros - Gets AWD as standard, ample cabin room, very reliable

Cons - Not the most powerful engine, hideous gerabox

One of the most preferred stations wagons out there. For me, the outback stands out form the rest of the wagon fleet wiht its macho looks. The black surround cladding and the standard AWD system does give it an upper hand from the rest of the lot, atleat on paper. In real world use, it does offer more traction in the winter and the high safety ratings make it a much more confident machine to use in the slippery conditions. It is also a rther easy to drive machine consiering the bigger overall dimensions that I've been used to. The only letdown is the engine, which I believe could have used somemore power given the car comes with a superb AWD system as standard. Susane was such a welcoming person. She was kind and patient enough to take us through all their inventory.

Too feeble for anything long distance.

Pros - Big seats, commendable city gas mileage

Cons - Low passing power, noisy engine, dim computer screen

needs more power! This car surely lacks passing power on the highways. I dont know whether if its their eco friendly technolgy or something, but my car seems to stuggle on highways. Whenever I put my foot down, say at about 50 mph, the engine screams a lot and the gain in pace is really slow. It almost gets in your nerves at times.I'm not someone who hears to music when driving, so this loud engine does turn out to be a nuisance when you are on lond drives. They were slightly pushy and wanted me to pick the Outback. Also, the guys at the accessories section forced me to get some off road matts which were quite expensive.

Pathetic Subaru!

Pros - Great on functional space. Standard safety aids. Agile handling.

Cons - Troublesome engine. No manual gearbox option.

Too bad, Subaru! I have only done about 25000 miles on the Outback and already thinking of disposing of this garbage of a vehicle. I bought this used '15 Subaru Outback only two years back as a family camper car which has turned out to be huge mistake now. The Boxer-4 engine has always been upto some drama right from the beginning. It has always been gruff in runjing and lethargic to drive. However, the dealership always passed it off as normal. At about 35k miles on the odo, the engine had a major oil leak from the front crank seal which was found during a routine service. Despite fixing it up, last month I had an engine oil level low malfunction. An oil consumption issue was always prelevant with the engine which was somehow unnoticed. I had to shell out an considerable amount for rebuilding the engine. It has been worst owning a Subaru and I swear this will be my last one! Although I'm satisfied with the quality of work put out by the team, I do not like the way the front office team talk to me. There has been a lot more courtesy with the other dealers that I have worked with. They call back with timely updates and deliver the cars on promised time. Can't find that with Little Rock Subaru!

Worth every penny

Pros - Climate control, great on gas, acceleration

Cons - None

Worth the money When it comes to comfort, safety, reliability, and ease of driving few can beat Subaru and Outback is no anomaly in this regard. My family adores the interior, especially my children. It has tons of space for all your little things. If I’m not wrong there are three of four spaces specially designed for your phone. Bluetooth, USB charging port, a power outlet, 2nd-row separate climate control, and a whole lot of other features are what make it the perfect compact SUV. Great. They took care of us. Great customer service.

Minor issues but good performance

Pros - High passenger and cargo space, Suitable for light offroading

Cons - Road noise.

Its fun and a safe car. It has some smooth cornering and suspension capabilties which makes it fun to ride. I also enjoy light offroading in it due to enhanced traction and better maneuverability. what i like the most is overall design and style, constant all-wheel drive, agility, great performance in winter conditions. Some issues faced are air conditioner problem, intermittent wiper speed is either too slow or too fast, rattling noise around overhead compartment, road noise on high speed, also traced some rust in drivers door.

Pros - Good standard features list,spaceous interiors,camping friendly

Cons - Sluggish gearbox,similar in design to other sister cars,

A good and affordable camper vehicle. This is the first SUV or Crossover vehicle I've owned and I'm loving it. The eyesight and blind sight features took getting use but very helpful. The sound system is the best. I look forward to driving it for years. This car meets all of my needs. It is a dependable car with a few preferred features: AWD, heated seats, leather interior, excellent repair history , affordable . Good experience

Near-perfect wagon

Pros - Lots and lots and lots of room

Cons - Lacklustre mileage

Comfortable and cozy car "This is a truly roomy wagon. Can fit the entire family inside it and provides enough place for taller persons to stretch their legs as well as they can. Really helpful and a practical vehicle. Also the safety features work just fine and the touch controls are also pretty responsive." "Although the staff at the dealership were helpful, I just felt there were not a lot of financing options available at this dealership. Also, most times it is pretty crowded and one has to wait a lot"

Subaru Outback body was not ready for off-roading

Pros - Comfortable ride, good rideability

Cons - Shakky doors and windows, more noises from the body parts

Poor built quality Even though it feels to be good at roads and off-roads,I travel in the Outback as it was my daily commuter and i do good off-road driving too but the body was not ready for that as the body starts shaking and gets sounds into the cabin. Even though the dealership does something to fix it but it will be back after the usage. I feel very bad for the built quality I did a service visit recently again,

The Subaru Station Wagon

Pros - Good handling. Good fuel economy. Great safety equipment.

Cons - No manual option. No complimentary maintenance.

My weekend Subaru! I bought this car exclusively for weekend family trips. It really seemed good value at the time of purchase for safety equipment and good AWD system on offer. The car is quite frugal and performs well on open roads. The X-mode on the car engages AWD system helping it be effortless around winding, steep roads. With proper care and maintenance of the car, The car has got good amounts of storage space as well as a good towing capacity. it still serves me quite good as it always have been doin!

Clearly one of the best s

Pros - "Comfortable ride Roomy interior Large cargo area"

Cons - Sluggish touch screen

I'm happy with my decision The Subaru Outback is a capable and premiumfeeling middleground between a car and an SUV. It has all of the offroad capability and interior space crossover drivers expect, with a soft, quiet ride and a carlike interior that makes it very comfortable to drive on long trips. Prompt service appointment, thorough questions by service representatives and review of maintenance completed. Price of service was lower than expected.

Outback for the outdoors!

Pros - All-weather capability. Spacious interiors. Affordable price.

Cons - Cabin material. Small screen. Center seat belt position.

Family tourer for all seasons! The Outback has been a perfect choice for my family trips. The AWD system works a charm especially on the winter roads. It feels equally stable and good to drive on highway tarmac. The humble inline-4 is great on fuel economy, making it economical for long trips also. The interior is more function-over-form design that offers great comfort and space. I really like the boot space on the Outback and fits in a lot of stuff including our camping supplies. However, the cabin material on the SUV is quite subpar and is falling apart after six years. It's still a worthy vehicle for its practicality and purpose-built! I have been a loyal customer here for more than five years now. There's a reason I come back here every single year. Satisfaction that my money is well-spent! Great service!

One tough family wagon

Pros - Rugged looks,good ground clearence,reliable

Cons - Misses out on some convinience features like electrically adjustible seats with heating function

Variety option in the crowd of wannabe's. I am rather fussy about a car and how it looks, handles and if it meets my needs. I have friends who have Subaru Outbacks and I was very impressed with the cars. I went to a dealership near me and I did a test drive and was very impressed. The ride is very smooth, I loved the all wheel drive - the car looked great and the color was perfect. It drives like a dream, holds the road in bad weather, has heated seats, heated side mirrors and heated windshield wipers. I got a very good deal and bought it then and there and have not had one regret Staff are very knowledable

Powerful Subaru Outback

Pros - Stylish look with roof rails,excellent visibility and good off-road ability

Cons - Fuzzy controls and not much entertaining features

Good at all The performance was awesome. it was a good off-roader.The suspension made it handle well with its decent ground clearance. The tires were well equipped which gives the best grip in the mud or on any slippery roads. The accelerating, braking and mpg figures were quite impressive as they were balancing all these to be the best one in the segment. I choose this over everything.

2013 Subaru Outback!

Pros - Confident on road. Good fuel economy. Safety features.

Cons - Weak sound quality. Fussy buttons. Could use more power.

Great for family trips! It has ben a decent experience with the Outback until now. Most of the miles on it has been highway trips in and around Missouri with the family. It has been reliable and hasn't been a let down at any point. Even the fuel economy is a decent 21-22 mpg on the highway. Another reason for choosing the Outback has been the safety ratings and the EyeSIght driving aids feature. It has surely made me feel safe and responsible for my family while I'm behind the wheel. I definitely made a wise choice with the Outback and have been satisfied with it for three years now! Lee's Summit Subaru really cut me a good deal on this five-year old Outback. It definitely had the best rates than rest of the SUbaru dealers I checked with!

Complete waste of money!

Pros - Spacious interior. Good visibility. Practical cargo area.

Cons - Poor quality engine. Weak stereo system.

Worst model year for a used Outback! I bought this '13 Subaru Outback two years back with about 35k miles on the odo. I liked the car for the initial few months with the good space and visibility it offers while driving. However, that feeling didn't last long until my first service experience. After having done just 6k miles after my purchase, the oil level was nearly half. This meant the engine consumed close to 2 quarts for the 6k miles of running. It was really disheartening to undergo such a major repair just after the first year of driving. I'm planning on trading it for a much a newer model year! The engine repair was swift and honestly priced. I was quite happy with the overall experience. Highly recommend for major repairs!

Punchy Outback

Pros - Powerful engine, Can handle snowy tracks easily, spacious interiors

Cons - Poor sound quality

Full on Power and traction The 3.6-liter V6 engine punches lots of power to haul loads of passengers and cargo. The handling and steering capabilities are not that good, but enough to get the work done. But the powerful engine comes at a price of hampered fuel economy. Winters come and go, but there is no effect on the Outback. It does what it has to and light-offoading on weekend seem to be a fun. The interiors are practical with loads of passenger room and capacious cargo. The rear seat recline adds to the comfort of rear seat occupants. But the four speaker audio system lacks quality to deliver a pleasing experience. So I extrenally did upgrade the audio system. The helpful folks make buying procedure easy, and their knowledge helped me select a great SUV.

Multifunctional Outback.

Pros - Great ground clearance, The AWD is quite smooth, and the eyesight safety technology is quite useful.

Cons - The start/stop button has so many problems, the brightness of the main center screen of the car is an issue, the glovebox compartment is tiny.

Great option for a large family. Absolutely love this car! Eyesight is great, especially for my spouse who now has an assistant if I'm getting too close to another car or moving out of our lane. Excellent space for gear in the back and back seats are comfortable for 3 teens or 2 adults. CVT could use more power, however getting 28-30 MPG for an all wheel drive...can't really complain. Treated like a family in the dealership.

Touring in the compact Outback

Pros - "Standard all-wheel drive Very spacious cargo area Roomy back seat"

Cons - Poor sound quality from base stereo

The one and only Outback I love the body style and color. The interior is very nice as well, with nice stitching and design. The infotainment system has a huge screen, with many settings. The lane assist, auto high beams, steering responsive headlights are impressive. The turbo gives this vehicle a great acceleration where needed. Staff has always been friendly, professional, and efficient. I never feel pressured to spend on superfluous items or service. I trust their judgment. The waiting room and restroom are clean and pleasant.

The Spacious Subaru

Pros - Spacious for family of five. Standard AWD. Affordable used car price.

Cons - Frequent repairs. Average styling.

Good enough until its five years old! I bought this used Subaru Outback about two years back. It really was an upgrade from the smaller VW Golf for a family of five. A local used car dealer provided a good deal considering the age of the car. However, off lately there has been a slew of mechanical repairs including overheating, coolant leaks, air conditioning repairs and even brake noise within a span of six months. Its difficult being the only car in for the Outback which had only 20k miles on the odo. Even the uphosltery on the cabin was in good condition the household and I'm starting to regret my decision investing in a car five years old.

Just gets the work done

Pros - Feature-filled, premium 9-speaker audio system

Cons - Poor handling, senseless steering

Feature-filled interiors but lackluster performance The Outback interiors are not so attractive. The controls are not user-friendly too. Yet I see some interesting features like leather upholstery, wood trim, dual-zone auto climate control and Harman Kardon 9-speaker audio system. Power moonroof is also that children in my family like to peek from while on trips. The ride handling is very poor, and steering is almost senseless. So despite the power, you miss the fun. Overall, it just gets the work done and nothing more. So I am considering to trade it very soon. They deal in a very unprofessional manner, and did not complete my service and replacements on time.

Not a good offering by Subaru.

Pros - "I found the car to offer great performer in the winter conditions, the CVT transmission on the car is quite decent, also the mileage is decent."

Cons - The tehnological features and equipment look to be of a cheap quality, the engine is quite noisy, and I have also faced trouble with the exhaust system of the car, maintainence costs are very pricy.

I am not much happy to buy this one. The vehicle runs great, gets great gas mileage, and is nice inside; just what I expected. The vehicle has the upgraded Harmon Karmon radio (no nav) and frankly, the radio is horrible. There is a constant hissing sound while on am, fm, xm, and bluetooth . While I don't expect a factory car radio to sound like a home stereo system, the HK radio is truly bad. And maintainence costs are terrible, To change a headlight bulb, requires removing several parts under the hood and THE BUMPER! With labor expect several hundred dollars, plus bulbs. Change them all or you'll do it again soon. Dont even consider using Subaru wipers, it'll cost you your paycheck They have excellent serivice and nice folks there.

I love it.The turbo is a must in my opinion. Great reputation. Resale value above average. Loaded with safety features which helped with annual insurance cost. It was actually much Less than I expected. I had a great experience working with Bennie who worked very hard with me and his team to figure out what happened and to resolve the issue. I would go back knowing that the GM wants to provide the best experience for their customers.

Subaru Outback: Great mileage, size, and safety

Pros - Great size, good gas mileage

Cons - •Height of vehicle

I think the 2012 Subaru Outback is a great and reliable vehicle, especially for its time. It is great in gas yet dependable in a cold environment like Alaska. I think the style of the car is quite nice but I also think the car should be a bit taller, like the newer Subaru outbacks. It is great at accommodating multiple passengers and/or animals. The car drives great in the Alaskan winter. The handling is amazing and the car is very stable even on snow. Great heating for the Alaskan cold, especially compared to many newer vehicles I have been in. Comes with a great sound system and a CD player. The interior is quite roomy. Outward visibility seems fine to me. The heating and air conditioning systems work great. I actually love how the car looks. I think the red color looks great on the long body of the car. I think the looks of the front lights can be improved a little. The features of the interior are quite nice and curved, especially for the age of the vehicle. The seats are all quite comfortable. I also feel the car is very safe and reliable, even in cold Alaskan weather. I think it is very reliable, especially for the age of the vehicle. The only thing I’ve had to worry about in terms of maintenance since I owned the vehicle was changing the brakes. Purchased for $12,500 which was a bit much for the condition of the car but it has been very reliable. It was a good experience but I do feel the car could have been in better condition

Cons - Stereo needs upgarde, storage compartments could have been better

Appealing Performer Comes with many desirable features like foglights, body-color mirror, rear privacy glass, leather wrapped steering wheel, moonroof, aloy wheels, It is very safe, There weren't damages as could have been. It managed everyone to safety, chassis is still very strong, The dual zone climate control works very effectively. I have had one roll up in one of my trip, the cabin kept us safe. It is a very good crossover I would say.

My 8-year old Outback!

Pros - Surefooted driving. Spacious interiors. Quite durable.

Cons - Poor mpg. Basic on the inside.

Trustworthy family wagon! The reliability my Outback shows even after 8 years of driving made me want to share the same on this review. The Outback has been my family's trusted, reliable touring car for the longest time now. Having covered 90k miles on the odo, the car has been mostly in great shape. I have always carried out oil changes, necessary periodic repairs meticulously from the Subaru workshop here in Idaho Falls. Except for a dip in fuel economy numbers now, I don't think I have any other issues on the car. Never once have I faced any breakdowns or major issues while on the move. My next car too is gonna be a Subaru for sure!

Subaru is the best!!

Pros - Super fast, Handling, Awd

Cons - Seats , Not much

Was a subaru, was is a color I lighted and the best part was that my grandma approves of the car to so that helped. Amazing it was super fast and took turns really well Subaru was an amazing car and it really was so amazing on the road I loved it and encourage everyone to get a Subaru. Leather seats were the best, it was super nice to have the switch shift, over all everything inside was nice the seat warmers were amazing it heated up fast. Leather seats were my favorite part, it was so big for car trips even with four people and packed full, plenty of leg room which was really amazing, even when your we?re all the way back. Two twine paint was the best part the style of the car really helped me make my decision, the car was amazing with the looks, it really spoke to my personality the second that I saw it. All wheel drive was an amazing thing, and other really food feature was all the airbags, I remember getting hit once and it didn?t even make a dent and I got hit pretty hard. Lots of airbags, the car had a solid engine, and also was a bigger car that let me get good traction in the snow I get safe by Subaru and what hey stand for and that really helped me make the best decision. Saved two grand and it still hasn?t really gone down it value it?s been really great understanding car values and seeing how much they have gone down over the years but my older Subaru holds better value than other cars. Amazing, they were super nice and helpful they lierally took their time to help me. They gave me amazing deals and helped me with the buying process with out pressuring me.

Gonna keep it for winters

Pros - Impressive traction, Powerpunched

Cons - Lack of agility, body lean, poor steering capability

Decent performing on snowy and ice tracks I purchased it new and the day it arrived was snowy, so it was an immidiate real test. It tackled all the winter well, and moreover I am surprised that it did climb a tall snow cliff. With Outback, snowy and icy roads now seem to me like a breeze. And it does this while delivering decent mileage. Now coming on to normal days, the ride is not fun due to lack of agility, body lean, and poor steering capabilities. I have travelled mor than 10k miles and I am gonna keep it till it gets me going around winters and also for the power-punch it provides me. The brake pads and clutch at 57k only which is concerning, and the dealer charged me a bit extra for it which is not good. I reached at the dealership around 11 in the morning, and was pleased that they welcomed me with a cup of hot coffee, especially as it was start of the winters. Later on I came across two to three guys who helped me in the buying procedure, but I would specially like to thank Mr. Jerry who skipped his lunch and accompanied me. I was happy to be there while buying, but later the experience I had with services was not great, as they did not cost me reasonably for replacement of rotors and brake pads.

My old, humble Outback!

Pros - Large cargo space. Airy visibility. Standard AWD.

Cons - Reliability issues. Low fuel economy. Poor sound sytem

Bad choice! I have been using the Outback for over six years. But what makes it really a bad vehicle is the reliabilty issues that comes surrounded for an old vehicle. I really liked the Outback for its space and comfrot on offer. However, with growing instances of poor reliability and problems, the Outback really feels bad for being my choice. Body rattles, humming noise, poor gas mileage, oil leaks and what not! The Outback has it all! Never buying a Subaru ever again! I really wish they could actually solve some serious issues. Most of the fixes have always been temporary and gets back to the same old shit-level in terms of reliability within few weeks! Really sad, Subaru!

A good but not great car.

Pros - Pretty affordable, great radio, good height of the vehicle

Cons - The design looks a bit cheap, Low torque on the engine, there is a weird sound when you push the gas pedal in the car, and increase the speed suddenly.

Go ahead if you are budget orient, or else can opt for a better version. lots of cargo space with good fuel economy also great performer but expensive repairs so I would like to point out only cons as they are the ones which is important to any drivers.. However, the headlamps were constantly burning out- until Subaru extended the repair at no cost, but really was inconvenient, and I was pulled over a few times for it. My 4cyl had timing belt(s), and had to be replaced twice (so far), due to the maintenance- very expensive at the dealership. Tires can be a bit of a problem for cupping- so I rotate every 5K- and that seems to correct the issue. This is my second Subaru, and the first one ran over 360K miles. However, they can be costly to maintain- and that's with me performing a lot of the maintenance myself. I currently have over 210,000 miles on the car, and would like to keep it another year at least- hopefully to get some of the repair cost back. I plan to replace the Outback in a year, and will most likely purchase another Subaru. Overall experience with the dealership has been pleasant. Everything was fast paced. Ali, my sales agent has been very informative, helpful, and accommodating throughout the transaction.

How is the Outback

Pros - "Balanced handling Standard all-wheel drive Large cargo hold"

Cons - Low fuel economy for the class

Performance with luxury Believe it or not my favorite feature is heated seats that are cloth. It’s the only car I found it has this feature. I love the driver assist function with automatic braking as well. I have leased two cars through Paul Miller Subaru and have been very pleased with both transactions. I was especially pleased with my salesman Harold. He was so friendly and easy to work with that I look forward to working with him again.

premium Subaru Outback

Pros - Good engine and the maintaince cost is reasonable

Cons - Lacks nimbleness

Best family cross-over At a very good price, Subaru Outback offers smooth well-equipped mech systems that work well after being used for almost 8 years power delivery and and mileage of 100k. It is reliable, valuable and good drivability.

AWD crossover

Pros - Spacious, front visibility is panoramic, comfortable ride

Cons - Trunk space, rear visibility,

Refined SUV Outback is quite appealing in looks, it can go off-roading, It is very safe and reliable, it handles very well. The steering feels easy but on high speed some issues might be there. Its interiors are very spacious, stylish. Soft materials have been used on seats, the suspension is well tuned for uneven terrains and some extreme paths as well. It offers great balance, refinement.

My great Subaru!

Pros - Reliability

Cons - Rusting

Absolutely! I would highly recommend a Subaru to everything. Even my daughter is going to buy one for her next car. Love my outback. I can take my granddaughter around town. Pick up stuff at a sale. Pick up a friend. Or go driving through the snow. So good! Great air conditioning. Better road driving cars in all kinds of weather. Seats are heated and can be folded down. Lots of room, very very comfortable. My kids, & granddaughter love it for its convenience. It also has a good amount of features as well. I do like the looks of the new outback, but mine still looks super cool too! I feel so safe in this car. If I were in a crash, I know we would still be ok. The best reliable car I have ever owned. Never ever have any problems with it. I bought it used for $12,000 and it was an excellent buy. The car is THE BEST EVER. Never had a Subaru before, but will continue to buy, even if they are a little pricey. Very honest dealership. Never tried to scam me. Always very upfront, & trustworthy.
