Luther Bloomington Subaru review
My Punk Rock Experience ordering New Forester!!
April 6, 2022
By Ramon from Minneapolis, MN
Stephen Poley was Amazing!! He explained everything thoroughly about the car ! No new Forester’s on the lot so he said you can drive my car it’s a 2022 and I fell in love with the car in 2 minutes! Jodie Fahey was amazing as well with her friendly demeanor and witty charm and created a Punk Rock experience that I will never forget! I can’t wait to drive my 2022 Subaru Forester which I just ordered 4 hours ago! Feeling very comfortable with my experience and and I will definitely recommend Bloomington Subaru to everyone!
2022 Subaru Outback Touring review
Plusses and Minuses

2022 Outback XT
Likes: Easy cruise control setting. Push steering wheel mounted tiny lever up or down...easy 5mph adjustment.
Turbo gives good acceleration. 26mpg + overall.
Easy steering wheel heater on/off.
Blind Spot Monitor..Large, inside of side mirrors very visible.
Nice interior...great fit and finish..classy. Comfy seats.
Easy drop down passenger seats from opened rear hatch.
Dislikes: Very annoying seat belt chime. This is an Outback, a sporty, take your car camping vehicle..so one would anticipate many in and out scenarios...like adjusting the kayak on the carrier, etc...yet EVERY time you have to clip on your seat belt or it will loudly drive you bonkers! Our two other vehicles (Toyota and Ford) do have the chimes, but not obnoxious at all). What was Subaru thinking?
No high beam headlight override...go down a country road, and if it switches to low beam, you cannot override it as I can with our other two vehicles...it seems to be tied to vehicle speed, but is inconsistent.
Setting the seat heater is unnecessarily complex (strangely for the front seats only). It is like a 3 or four step process, which takes your eyes off the road...at which time the car buzzes you to keep your eyes on the road...which are off the road because of this complex maneuver ...every other car we've ever owned just has at the simple button to push, as with the rear seats. AND...even on the lowest setting, the seat gets hotter and hotter, unlike our other two vehicles...till u have to turn it off.
On entry, I hit my head on the door sill...I am 5'9", and yet..
Driving, the Subaru feels light; not firmly planted. The front end feels to want to wander...my wife thinks it is ok...maybe I am used to our front-heavy diesel truck.
Heater or A/C is NOT automatic.... you have to monitor the fan..taking your eyes on the road ...with every other vehicle we have or ever had, you set the temp and theater/A/C adjusts the fan as needed.
Finally...this may be just a "my car only" problem...one crossbar is loose...which gives me concern when hauling our kayak. Subaru looked at it and said it was within limits...yet, going through the parking lot, I have never found one other that is loose like that.
This is mostly my wife's car, and she (5'2") likes it. She likes how it drives, gives her good vision all around, dislikes the obnoxious seatbelt chime and unnecessarily complex seat heater.
Overall, it seems to be a well-built car, though our daughter, who has the same,(Touring XT) has had transmission problems at 40K miles, that she feels has never been totally fixed. We have had no engine or tranny problems, with 27k miles so far.
