Reviews for 2009 Subaru Outback
You never forget your...THIRD
I didn't want to become known as 'one of those' Subie owners, so test drove every comparable car, new and used, prior to purchasing my third Subaru. I am so pleased with the upgrades that Subaru made to this model (I previously owned a '96,'97). This is the first model I've owned with the boxer engine, which is snappy for on ramp accelerations, yet also fuel efficient. Averaging 24-25 MPG on recent road trips. The tight turning radius makes this car a pleasure to park, or do a quick U-turn. The car performs well on 87 octane gas, which helps with today's fuel pump prices.My car has a moon-roof feature, which goes all the way to the back seat - LOVE IT - all the benefits of a convertible on a sunny SoCal day. Though I don't have to battle inclement weather here, I still appreciate the steadiness of the AWD when heading to slick roads in the mountains, or ungraded dirt roads out in the desert, or even at the local beach campground. The comfort rates a 4 because I am still getting accustomed to the tighter quarters in the front seat area, which seem more snug than my earlier model (though the 2012s are much larger again). The front seats seem a little stiffer than my old car, but they were pretty well worn. The cars' styling is as nice as the Volvo or BMW 5-doors. If you've owned a Subaru before, don't torture yourself, just get another one. If you've never owned one, beware, you'll never go back. I love that the company has a mission driven arm called "Leave No Trace," that helps get kids out into the wilderness. Maybe they are cultivating the next generation of Subie drivers, but I love a company with a mission beyond simply making profits. I love my Subaru...
Engine failed with less than 30K miles. Reason for engine failure may have been manufacturer or previous owner, however this particular vehicle has been problematic. CarMax did help with part of the repair cost, but it is unlike CarMax's reputation.
Glad to have a Subaru
Great condition. Versatile-back seats fold flat easily Electric driver's seat, heated front seats. Good acceleration for 4 cylinders. Roomy. Sits higher than a car. AWD
