Not real happy.
December 13, 2018
I’ve had an Envoy, Accord, Highlander, Edge & Outback. Electrical problems (Envoy & Highlander), uncomfortable to climb in & out of (Accord), Excessive interior noise (Edge); So I bought the much acclaimed Outback. Here’s what I think of it: Has poor transmission response, I asked about it & was told it’s normal; lots of wind sheer noise, even passengers have commented, it’s excessive; excellent maintenance so generally reliable; ok comfort, nothing special; USB VERY inconvenient to access & not good technology for bluetooth, it wants to connect whether you want it to or not. The headlight & windshield washer arms don’t light the functions so when it’s dark you best have them memorized because you can’t see them; SO, I’m still looking for the perfect crossover that accommodates our pets & our lifestyle and it isn’t the Outback. If you love belonging to a club, a SUBARU is the car for you. They send you all kinds of event notifications for Subi owners. Not my thing, I just want a reliable, comfortable, quiet ride.
