Good town car, but not for long road trip.

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

Japanese Jeep

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

Caveat Emptor!

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

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

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

Small and good quality

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