BEST FOUR CYLINDER CAR I'VE EVER OWNED. VERY QUIET
August 12, 2017
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.
