Love my functional and reliable Subaru

2011 Subaru Outback 2.5i

This has been a very reliable vehicle since buying it new. I routinely have it serviced at the dealership, which may be a little pricey, but helps with my confidence in the reliability, and a loaner is provided for the key mileage bigger maintenance work. Its had a couple of recalls that Subaru informed me about and dealership fixed. It rides and handles very well, is comfortable for long trips for 4 ad u lts. Seats five comfortably for short commutes. Average 28 mpg overall. Upholstery has held up well. Feel safe in snowy wet her with the 4WD. Have hauled a variety of building materials like a pickup truck wannabe, so it is very functional and versatile. Use the roof racks for kayaks and SUP. This is my third Subaru and I don't see myself buying differently when I decide to retire this one.

We love our Outback and Subaru!

2011 Subaru Outback 2.5i

We absolutely love our Subaru Outback! We had a legacy before this and it made us fall in love with Subaru. They have great quality cars and we rarely have any issues or problems. The outback is great for a family, plenary of space in the back for trips and the backseat has space for our car seats comfortably. It runs great and is a smooth drive. It has great gas mileage and maintenance has always been easy. We love our outback and are planning on getting another Subaru in the near future.

A Subaru Outback is a comfortable and trustworthy means of transportation.

2011 Subaru Outback 2.5i

I actually consider my Subaru to be one of my most prized possessions. It is the safest and most comfortable vehicle I've ever ridden in, both as a driver and as a passenger. Owning a vehicle with 4-wheel-drive has been incredibly helpful, and has gotten me safely up my steep driveway during many winter snows. I also love the roominess of my Subaru. It been a comfortable means of travel on a number of long road trips.

Reliability & safety are number one with this vehicle!

2011 Subaru Outback 2.5i

I love my Subaru outback. It is not only a good looking vehicle, it is very safe and the airbag on the passenger side saved my life. This has been the most reliable vehicle I have ever owned. The interior with heated seats are wonderful. However the radio design looks a little unspectacular it delivers on good sound. I would buy it again times 2.

Great car to last for years

2011 Subaru Outback 2.5i

No major problems have come up with my car with routine maintenance. There as aren't many additional high end features. Car can run a little on the loud side but definitely a smooth ride overall. There's not sunroof. Pretty basic radio and sound system. Has lasted for 8 years with no issues

Roomy enough for car seats, hockey bags and sticks.

2011 Subaru Outback 2.5i

The car is super reliable, fun to drive and roomy. The stick shift is one of the smoothest we have had. It fits two adults, two car seats, six hockey sticks and three bags plus a stroller comfortable. It handles well in the snow and rain and has an excellent range for long road trip.

People have them for a reason

2011 Subaru Outback 2.5i

The outback fits two adults and two car seats very well. It comes with a small backup camera in the rear view mirror which is very handy. Great gas mileage. I feel like it's rather long but it could be just because I haven't driven a station wagon before. It's great in the winter.

Subaru Outback 2011- perfect mix between a SUV and car

2011 Subaru Outback 2.5i

I have absolutely no complaints. It handles well in all weather types, and have had no major problems as long as you maintain oil changes and other preventative work. Only issue I have experienced is headlights die quickly however are under recall so they cost nothing to fix.

- Brittany P

Subaru outback great for bad weather or off road

2011 Subaru Outback 2.5i

Very reliable and is great on gas mileage. Had a couple more problem with a clamp for the muffler getting rusty and needing replaced. There has also be some recall for it but otherwise a great vehicle. Works great in the snow and ice long with during the raining season

- Nolan J

My heated seats make the northern NY winter bearable.

2011 Subaru Outback 2.5i

The only issue I've had is that it is a bit difficult to change the headlight. Pieces must be removed and reattached for a simple headlight replacement. With the normal oil changes and level check my engine you been running perfectly. Oh, and I love my heated seats!!

- Andrew M

I have the Subaru outback so there is plenty of room

2011 Subaru Outback 2.5i

I've been driving my Subaru for eight years now and I have never had a major problem with it. I feel that it is a safe and reliable car. I would recommend this vehicle to everyone. My next car I buy (which won't be for a while) will probably be another Subaru.

- Colleen R

Great car - unreliable transmission.

2011 Subaru Outback 2.5i

I love this car! Great for outdoor adventures, tons of room for storage and passengers, and great on gas. Subaru extended the warranty on the transmission for this year car due to the CVT failing. If the CVT wasn't an issue, I'd say this is the perfect car.

- Trisha M

A capable and useful family car

2011 Subaru Outback 2.5i

The check engine light came on originally when we were on a long trip. It happens again when the gas gets to below half a tank. Fixing this problem will require a engine retail. The ride ability is great, and it has plenty of space for my family and dogs.
