Used 2010 Subaru Outback 2.5i for Sale
Reviews for 2010 Subaru Outback
What I was looking for when I walked onto the lot
It's a 4x4 SUV, which gives me better traction on slippery pavement - such as after a winter snowstorm. I live rural, so roads may not be plowed as promptly as in town.
I'm really enjoying the great gas mileage compared to the big suv I had. The bluetooth technology is great and I'm able to talk handsfree on the phone. The back-up camera adds a little extra help in seeing what's behind. I'm looking forward to seeing how it handles in snow and icy conditions since we are in the mountains frequently. I miss the cargo space in the suv, but with an after market roof cargo bag, the outback will be able to transport all my gear. The handling is great, parking is an ease and it's really got some pick-up for a six cylinder. If I could change one thing, I would add air conditioning in the back so my dogs can have their own air since they usually pretty warm and panting for air after their walks.
Great MPG for AWD
The bottom line on the Outback is all wheel drive wagon for 30 mpg. The ground clearance is very high for a car which makes it comfortable to get in and out of. Avoid the light colored cloth interiors as it soaks up every stain possible. The CVT takes some getting used to. There is a delay engaging the transmission from reverse into drive and on a hill it can roll backwards like a manual transmission but otherwise the CVT is great for MPG. At highway speeds a typical trans will downshift and slow you down but this CVT just coasts saving fuel but again takes some getting used to not to rear end the car in front of you. The handling is not as "tight" as you would expect with an AWD. This is no BMW on corners. The Outback rides very well for a SUV/wagon. I really dont understand the Subaru need to have a boxer engine. It is loud at acceleration but contrary to some reviews it is quick enough in my opinion. Again, this isnt a Porsche but the 4 cyl can be pushed when needed. I use the wagon cargo area for all of my two boys sports gear and still have room to spare. There is however quite a bit of vibration in the steering wheel at highway speeds. The seat positions are good and plenty of legroom for me at 6'2". The outback is ranked in the top 10 for resale value and has been reliable for me.
