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
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.
2013 Subaru OutbackJohn Meister - Daniel, WY05/04/2017
This car got me through one of the worst winters in Western Wyoming in history. We had a lot of snow. This car handles fantastic on slick roads. I never got stuck. It also rides like a luxury car. I have the 3.6 L. With the six cylinder engine. The car is also loaded with options.
