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.
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.
Outstanding Family Vehicle
2014 Subaru OutbackDevin S - Jacksonville, FL11/30/2017
This vehicle is great for everything that you need to do. We have two kids and two large dogs, everyone fits in just fine and with the roof rack, there is plenty of room for our bags on long trips. I have the tow package on mine 2.5L and can tow my small boat (max is around 2klbs) and it tows it just fine. We live in Florida so the car is under some extreme heat for most of it's life and handles it just fine, esp. with the aircon running 24/7. The handling of the vehicle is magnificent, it can really take corners and it will give you a lot of confidence if you have to swerve quickly to avoid a crash. Overall the car is amazing, the only issue is these boxer engines are known for eating oil. We have to add 1 qt around every 2500 miles
