2008 Subaru OutbackLinder - Kansas City, KS02/20/2012
I've wanted an Outback for quite some time, but still felt I owed it to myself to objectively try other SUV's and crossovers during my search. In the end the Outback still came out on top. After 2 months, a trip from KC to Denver and another from KC to Chicago, I am very happy about this purchase. The car is a very comfortable drive and in my opinion is a great balance between size and cargo space. Fuel efficiency is a little less than ideal but for a car this size it's not bad at all. Turning radius is great, highway noise going 60mph and above is dramatically less than other large vehicles and I love the AWD, perfect for a road trip to Anchorage! This baby was made for snow. In short it's an extremely efficient and sensible car made for any driving conditions, and will surely be the first of many Subaru's in my life!
Really Digging My Outback

This is the first 4 door vehicle I have every owned. I bought it for commuting to work during inclement weather. It handles really well and I get on the high side of the gas mileage average.
My Subaru Outback
2008 Subaru OutbackCassidy - Colorado Springs, CO09/23/2011
I absolutely love my "new car" to me! I recently took it on a short adventure (but only 2 hours) and it handled perfectly and I felt very comfortable going out of town with it. This car is perfect for me and my job. It has just enough 'class' but also some 'roughage.' It has much better gas mileage than my previous large SUV.
I LOVE MY "NEW" SUBARU!" It is beautiful and it is wonderful. I feel very safe driving it.
