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.
Love the Outback

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!
