Customer Review Summary for 2009 Subaru Outback

Engine Failed

2009 Subaru Outback Laura Mellusi - Charlottesville, VA 12/21/2015

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.

Outback 3.0

2009 Subaru Outback G - Richmond, VA 05/29/2012

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.

2009 Subaru Outback Sue - , 01/15/2013

We've had our sights on a Outback for the last year. Every Outback owner we've met had nothing but good things to say about them. Comfortable, great handling in all weather conditions and excellent reliability.
