Although expensive for of 2008 (can get a new one for not much more, equally equipped) - the Subaru holds it's value. I prefer the the smaller body (wagon-like feel) and tighter handling to the new 2010 and 2011 Outback models. I specifically chose the 2008 over a new Outback -- as the new model feels and handles like a full SUV.
The 2008 is fun to drive, responsive and still hold a great deal of your gear (and a large dog!)
Carmax did it again!

This was our 4th or 5th purchase from Carmax and we are loving this one as well. The Subaru Outback is awesome and we are looking forward to using it for many years to come. When we are ready for another one, we will go right back to Carmax!
