I had driven a 2010 Chevy Malibu and hated it. I spent a lot of time researching cars and finally decided on the Subaru Outback. Several reas0ns for this decision were, more room to haul, greatly enhanced visibility, a much smaller turning radius than the Malibu, and better gas mileage. Everyone I talked to before the purchase, had only good things to say about the car. No one had negative comments.

The Subaru Outback is a comfortable and smooth ride. It fits our lifestyle of camping and going skiing in the mountains. We are starting a family and it has nice room in the back and it is considered one of the safest cars to buy.
