Overall a great car! Got it about a month ago and to date I have no complaints. Looks great inside and out, very roomy, reliable, fairly good on gas. I get anywhere from 22 to 28 mpg. Have about 120 milesroundtrip daily to and from work. No issues at all and it doesn't seem as if I'll have any. I believe I will always have atleast one Subaru in my driveway! Overall satisfied customer.

BEST FOUR CYLINDER CAR I'VE EVER OWNED. VERY QUIET

My 2009 Outback Limited Edition model is everything I need... and more. Other than a few minor oil leaks that are not uncommon on the Boxer engine - I love this car! The utility is great, with lots of interior space to throw my skies and gear into for fast trips up to the mountains. The Harmon Kardon stereo is fantastic, delivering crisp highs and lows. The low notes, i.e. bass, is enhanced by the powerful sub-woofer, located in the cargo area. I feel very secure at highway speeds and visibility is excellent. I burn premium fuel, by choice. I plan on keeping this car for the long hall and increase engine life, plus added performance and increased gas mileage are benefits to burning premium fuel. I just put four new Yokohama Tires on it and my gas mileage increased. Getting close to 25 MPG combined highway and city. I have 140,000 miles on it and feel confident in getting another 140,000 out of it. Paying for a repair/maintenance once in a while, sure beats a $500 - $600 car payment every month. Also, I prefer the sleek lines on the pre-2010 Outbacks vs. the new body style, with the exception of the Touring Model. The Touring Model Out back will be my next car.

Perfect Roadtrip Car

by from Milwaukie, Oregon on March 28, 2017

Ryan made the process easy and was very informative. This is my first car and wanted a safe car that would do well in all weather and on road trips.

OK except for the CV Joint Boots

With the exception of the totally unreliable CV Joint Boots next to the transmission, this is a very good car. Having to pay $745 to have the boots replaced at 37450 miles is unacceptable. This is a design flaw caused by excessive heat damage from the exhaust system on the boots. By comparison, my 19 year old Miata with over 145000 miles has no CV Joint boot failures . My over 20 year old Mazda Protege went 119000 miles before the boots went out.
