Very comfortable, great gas mileage and plenty of room for camping and going to the beach . Can go out to dinner dressed, or go off-roading

Drives well, good looking, reliable, comfortable

This has been a great car for us with 26K miles so far. All our neighbors have commented on how nice it looks. We love the Eyesight features, which are truly impressive to see in action. It is smooth and comfortable on the highway and trust-inspiring off-road. I have one small complaint: the CVT is touchy when when starting from a stop, making it necessary to be very careful to not push the accelerator too far and then to back off on the accelerator as the CVT "upshifts" quickly to maximize gas mileage. I believe Subaru has fixed this in newer models. Other than that, it is a joy to drive.

Most reliable car I have owned

I have owned a Subaru Outback for the last 10 years. It brings me great joy. Has awesome power and great style. Plenty of space and so fun to drive.
