Reviews for 2010 Subaru Outback
2010 Subaru Outback 2.5 Premium w/CVT
I purchased this car about 6 weeks ago. This is the second subaru I have owned. This was a replacement for a Ford Explorer. I installed a 2" receiver trailer hitch, and use it to tow a trailer, max weight of around 1200 pounds. I am very happy with this vehicle. Cargo capacity is very good, the CVT transmission works great, including when towing. Handling is great, gas mileage has been 28-29 mph, combined city/highway. The only thing I can complain about on this vehicle is that the center console cup holder divider is junk, it pops out at the slightest jarring. The proverbial cup holder issue is not enough to make me lower any of my ratings.
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.
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.
