The Subaru Outback ! A family car with a sports mode that keeps you on track.

The Subaru Outback costs me about $45.00 to fill it up with the premium gas. The car does have a jerk feeling while shifting from second to third gear. I have the automatic, and I am told that the jerk is normal. The rest of the gears are a smooth transition. In sports mode on the freeway the Rpm's are running about 2800. The car is roomy in the back seat with plenty of room in the far back for groceries. The car has a blind spot on the right side, be sure to look over your shoulder when changing lanes. Awesome car!

- Anthony C

I enjoy my 2009 Subaru Outback.

I purchased this car second-hand from my mother. I love the smoothness of the ride, the fact that the seats are power adjusted - so much easier than pulling a lever and hoping to put it in the right place and shimmying to hear it click into place. My husband is not a very tall man (5'10") and he has issues with the passenger seat - he does not seem to have enough room. I also had issues getting rear-facing car seats to fit in the backseat without moving the seats up. I enjoy the leather heated seats and sunroof.

- Sara V

This car is comfortable, with space for everyone and everything.

My car is dependable and even though its getting old and has had some repairs due to the age of the car, I will buy the same kind of car again. The seats are heated in the front and are very comfortable. The car handles well in the snow and ice. The back seats are spacious and comfortable. Weather you are grocery shopping or packing up the family for a camping trip this car fits all your luggage and outside equipment. The car doesn't look very big but the inside will hold all your family's needs.
