Used 2009 Subaru Outback 2.5XT Limited for Sale
Reviews for 2009 Subaru Outback
LOVE my Outback!!!
I recently purchased my third Subaru Outback since 1998! My husband and I have owned five Subaru's in the past 12 years. The Subaru Outback serves my needs and lifestyle PERFECTLY! We live 26 miles from work and have to drive many back roads, highways, interstates, etc. We also live in the woods up a very steep roadway. My Outback has gotten me in and out to work during inclement weather when my husband's F150 wouldn't! Outback's are a perfect combination of performance and style. I love the five doors and the inside of my 2009 is very luxurious for an SUV. The ride has improved greatly since I bought my first new one in 1998. I also greatly appreciate the "All wheel drive, all the time." No changing to/from four wheel drive. We also have dogs, so the Outback is very accommodating for pets, groceries, plants, etc. I hope to ALWAYS own a Subaru Outback!!!
love my new 2009 2.5i LTD edition
This is my 4th Subaru of my liftetime...just sold a 96 model I had keep for 13 years (from 60K miles) still going strong! This newer 2009 model is different in many ways that the 96 model yet familiar feeling still ! More electronics bigger engine with still good gas mileage! LOVE the MP3 jack in the console between the seats ! VERY quiet engine....the automatic version has a manual overdrive option which makes climbing hills much easier ! Overall a good buy....the 2009 has some big shoes to fill....my 96 outback had 210K miles + on the clock when I sold it....I plan on keeping this one just as long! !
After several weeks of searching on-line for a 6-cylinder Outback, one popped up on CarMax. My on-line inquiry got a quick response from a nearby saleswoman, and she was very helpful thru the whole process. I had to wait a couple weeks to get it transported from Nebraska here to River City, but it was worth the rate. Except for a warning in the owner's manual about using regular gas, everything about this little AWD wagon is fine. It does 'run better' on mid-grade than regular so that's what I've been putting in it. For the past several years I've been driving a Dakota 4WD that got about 10 MPG in town and 18 on the road, so the Outback's 22 in town and 28 on the road impress me the most. I wanted the AWD to get me out of my neighborhood when it snows, but driving it for a thousand miles in rain and shine shows me that the little car is extremely well balanced, and never feels like the back end wants to whip around to the front like an un-loaded pickup or other smaller car. My impression about the 4-cylinder Outbacks is they sound like sewing machines and aren't very peppy. I'm glad I held out for a 3.0 6-cylinder engine, is plenty quick, doesn't make that throaty growl like the Dakota when accelerating up an on-ramp, but I'd rather retire (in a couple of years) with a higher-mileage vehicle and the 3.0 engine is a good compromise for me. There's nothing I don't like about it, and I look forward to putting a couple hundred thousand miles on it.
