In every sense, my 2008 Outback meets all my expectations! First trip was a 1,000 mile roundtrip into Up North snow country, and this all-wheel dude performed as advertised. A new set of Michelin Primacy tires assured handling/performance perfection and this LL Bean Limited edition, complete with navigation system, fit our needs perfectly
Overall this car is wonderful!!

We love the car.
We do think that Subaru could improve the gas mileage - even on an eight cylinder car. Also we think that for this level of car (top of the line) the passenger seat should have the same exact power seat (with all the choices) as the driver's seat.
Good for the dogs :-)

Would look for something less costly to maintain. While comfortable and stable/tank-like, it is not a good commuter car because it is so expensive to maintain. Expect overall to spend about $2,400 a year in regular service and maintenance (not repair).
Nice flat floor with no sill at the tailgate makes it easy to hold and load two doggie travel crates behind the back seat.
