Subaru outback: pros and cons of mine.
It drives great in any condition including snow. Very comfortable. Very easy car to drive with great gas mileage. I've got leather interior but the either has those pin point holes in the leather. I would never buy a car with that kind of leather again. Food, etc. Gets stuck in those holes and can be impossible to get out. Other than that, I really like the interior. My mats are rubber which is great when you have kids. Lots of room in the cargo area! Love that. When the car was at 68, 000 miles, a head gasket blew which ended up costing me $3000. I had always heard people say that Subarus were such great cars. Never anything wrong. Not so with mine. When I bought the car used in 2014, my son was 3. So I made sure that the child safety lock was on in the back. Well, once he turned 5&1/2 or so, I wanted to unlock that so he could get himself out of the car. It was stuck. It wouldn't unlock. I put up with it for another year or so but got tired of that. It cost me $200-300 to get that fixed. The last problem I want to mention is that for the last year or so, a few lights on the dashboard are on. Those are: "cruise" blinks, "brake" blinks, "check engine" is on solid, "traction" is on solid. Occasionally they all go off (all at the same time) for a few days to a week but inevitably they all (at the same time) come back on. I am choosing not to do anything about it. I cannot afford to fix it. I happen to know another Subaru outback owner that is having a similar problem with dashboard lights but also with her nav screen/radio/back up camera. When I get another car, it will not be a Subaru.
