Description: Used 2019 Subaru Outback 2.5I Limited for sale - $28,998, 11,856 miles with Full Roof Rack, 4WD/AWD, Leather Seats, Sunroof(s), Harman Kardon Sound, Parking Sensors
Transmission: Automatic Color:Gray Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: (0 reviews) This car is comfortable and has way more space than you think. Seriously I pick an almost 8' tall door in it and still managed to close the tailgate/hatch. A nifty feature of the Subaru is that there are handles located near the hatch that you can pull to easily drop the back seat down for putting items inside. Super handy when you're carrying a long, heavy item and forgot to pre-plan.

Description: Used 2018 Subaru Outback 2.5I Premium for sale - $21,998, 51,552 miles with 4WD/AWD, Sunroof(s), Rear View Camera, Navigation System, Front Seat Heaters, Auxiliary Audio Input
Transmission: Automatic Color:Red Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: (5 reviews) Fuel efficient, road hugging, spacious, nice amenities and very comfortable. With its 6-speed switchable automatic/manual transmission its at home on the highway as on two lane windey mountain roads -- a real pleasure to drive; I thought I would miss the 5-speed of my Scion xA but the steering wheel mounted paddle shifters fill in just fine. My driving is 50/50 Interstate and surface and my Outback consistently gets around 30mpg. With the rear seats lowered it has more cargo area than my son's Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Transmission: Automatic Color:Silver Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: (5 reviews) This is my third Outback Limited. I transport dogs for a Golden Retriever rescue organization. The sunroof, leather seats, AWD, and interior/cargo room make it ideal for that purpose. I am getting great gas mileage for an SUV. The ride is comfortable and fairly quiet. My only two complaints are minor...the headrest has an uncomfortable tilt for someone who is short and the panel with the clock is difficult to read during the day. The Outback is fun to drive and looks good too.

About The Subaru Outback

FAQ

Is the Subaru Outback an SUV or a Wagon?

The Subaru Outback is a wagon. This means that that the Subaru Outback is built on a sedan platform, offering the same driving characteristics and passenger seating as a sedan, but with an amount of cargo space that is competitive with what you may find on many SUVs. Wagons such as the Subaru Outback are a great middle-ground between SUVs and sedans and are a good choice for drivers who are looking for some of the best features of both vehicle types.

Can a Subaru Outback Tow?

Reviews for Subaru Outback

Overall Rating

4.5 out of 5 (18 reviews)

So far so good

This car is comfortable and has way more space than you think. Seriously I pick an almost 8' tall door in it and still managed to close the tailgate/hatch. A nifty feature of the Subaru is that there are handles located near the hatch that you can pull to easily drop the back seat down for putting items inside. Super handy when you're carrying a long, heavy item and forgot to pre-plan.

Pros

  • Cargo Space: See above, tons of room.
  • Ride and Handling: This is a comfy car to drive so far and I haven't even once felt like I was losing control. Sadly it's only been out in wet conditions not snowy but I'm looking forward to trying next year!

Cons

  • Cabin Noise: Only con I've found so far is that when there is a certain amount of rain the cabin becomes oddly loud. Best guess I have is that water is pooling somewhere in the roof rack and making large amounts of noise when pushed by the wind.

- Charles S, 2018 Subaru Outback

My Third Outback!

This is my third Outback Limited. I transport dogs for a Golden Retriever rescue organization. The sunroof, leather seats, AWD, and interior/cargo room make it ideal for that purpose. I am getting great gas mileage for an SUV. The ride is comfortable and fairly quiet. My only two complaints are minor...the headrest has an uncomfortable tilt for someone who is short and the panel with the clock is difficult to read during the day. The Outback is fun to drive and looks good too.

Pros

  • Fuel Economy: Getting 28-30 mpg
  • Safety: AWD for bad weather and high safety ratings
  • Cargo Space: Great for transporting dogs and their "gear"

Cons

  • Seat Comfort: Headrest not as comfortable as my previous Outbacks; I am short
  • Dashboard: The panel with the clock is difficult to read during the day.

- Barbara Boyd, 2013 Subaru Outback

An amazing vehicle!

Fuel efficient, road hugging, spacious, nice amenities and very comfortable. With its 6-speed switchable automatic/manual transmission its at home on the highway as on two lane windey mountain roads -- a real pleasure to drive; I thought I would miss the 5-speed of my Scion xA but the steering wheel mounted paddle shifters fill in just fine. My driving is 50/50 Interstate and surface and my Outback consistently gets around 30mpg. With the rear seats lowered it has more cargo area than my son's Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Pros

  • Fuel Economy: If gas prices go sky-high I'll still be happy with the 27-30+MPG I'm getting now. Mileage is better than my Ford Escape.
  • Ride and Handling: On expressways it's like sittintg on your comfy sofa, on the winding hilly roads it settles in and takes curves at speed; it must be the symetrical AWD
  • Interior Space: With rear seats up it seats five adults comfortably and still has cargo space.

Cons

  • Cost to Maintain: I have not owned this long enough to determine maintenance cost, but new tires cost $800, I guess you pay what you want to.
