Reviews for 2010 Subaru Outback
Subaru Outback is a great ride!
We bought the 2010 Outback 3.6 Limited because it fits the following criteria: 1. Quiet: the 3.6 engine is very quiet, compare to our old Accord V6 and a Mitsubishi I4. The sound insulation is excellent, even better than a Lexus RX400h we test drove for a few days. 2. 4WD: Subaru has a good reputation for the 4WD system. We want to use it in the mountain travel, so it is a must. Combining with 8+ inches of clearance, it is very capable. 3. Good gas mileage: I got 22/30 mpg (city/high way) over 2000+ miles of driving. However, I am a conservative driver. 4. Space: The interior is very spacious to say the least. Comfortable for 4 full-size adult to travel hundreds of miles at a time. The trunk is a good size too. The factory crossbar is handy for adding a roof box. 5. Sound system: The factory Harmon Kardon speaker system sounds very nice once dialed in, especially with the USB input and CD/DVD. The satellite radio and FM/AM radio have a little hissing sound, but they are radios! I added a factory rear bumper-top protector to the car. It is a perfect fit. Things that may need improvement: 1. Many reviews have pointed out that the navigation/entertainment system control is not easy to use, I can attest to that. It is not very intuitive and confusing at times. For example, the setup for the navigation and the sound systems are in two discreetly separate locations. But to be fair, no factory navigation system can touch Google map, and you don't have to know every function, do you? 2. Because of the ground clearance, the shape of the hood, and the design of the steering, it felt a little disconnected to the road. It is not as precise as the Mitsubishi RalliArt Sportback I owned. 3. The engine and transmission, although very quiet, is not very responsive. The throttle response is just not as agile as my other car. Although the 3.6 engine is quick in highway passing situations. 4. I would love to have an automatic tailgate, but it is a minor thing. Overall, it is a great car for traveling the distances. We are satisfied.
For living in the west, specifically Colorado, Subaru Outbacks are THE car to own. Yes, I understand that station wagons are not "hip" or cool, but this car is not about being hip or cool, but rather being able to get where you want to go up in the hills safely and with little trouble. And speaking of little trouble, any Subaru, with its all-wheel-drive, will allow you to get around town or the state in snowy weather, with little or no trouble. The Outback is safe and one of the most reliable vehicles out there!
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.
