Bought the 2007 Subaru Outback LL Bean (6 cylinder) wagon. I have owned Toyota's truck, Honda's Vans and SUV's and Nissan's since college. I feel like I have finally found the one vehicle that does it all - and does it well. Family comfort, single person performance, carrying capability etc..The 6 cylinder is clearly the best engine on 2007 Gen 3 Subaru outbacks. Not hugely fast off the line but it has oodles of power for passing on the highway. It is hard to describe how sure footed this wagon feels while driving. In front wheel drive cars you always have grip but often you are fighting torque steer (different length drive shafts). With Subaru, because everything is equal and balanced - the car just goes with little vibration or noise anywhere - even at high revs. It never slips. The only investments I have made were rear struts (at 70K the OEM's were shot). This car does recommend the 91 Octane - but over a years time that is about a $300-400 difference but for performance the engine is very peppy. I think in 2008 they only need 87 octane. Also the H6 in 2007 has a timing chain - no timing belt change needed :)
