My Safe and Reliable Subaru through a Young Adult's Eyes

2013 Subaru Outback 2.5i

My Subaru makes me feel safe and comfortable and relaxed with no worries to be able to get anything done. Easy to fold the seats for packing extra cargo. Or to reset the seats for passengers. Super safe and reliable in mountain terrains. The shocks are gentle and make the ride inside the car feel so relaxed. The outback is right in between sizes of small and big enough. Interior is made of good quality material. I have 2 problems with this car. One is that the 4-cylinder engine doesn't have enough pickup for the car itself so at times when it's loaded down accelerating seems slower. My most basic model isn't used very much for towing so it's not too big of an issue but for other people upgrading the cylinder or getting a sport feature might be better. Second, the maintenance on this car is quite expensive. I thought I could keep up with the maintenance on initial research, but I've been surprised how costly it is if there is issues under the hood. Be wise on considering this in your decision before buying. Subaru, in my opinion, is the safe and luxurious option to terrain and cargo life. Overall, I love my Subaru, it's sturdy and reliable.

Dependable family vehicle

2013 Subaru Outback 2.5i

The car has been very reliable throughout the years it has been in the family. We refer to it as the tank because it is so sturdy. It has heated seats, which are really nice. The passenger airbag was recalled so it needed to be replaced, no money out of our pockets. Something was wrong with the engine, completely new one with nothing out of pocket. Has great gas mileage. Only issue we have really had is with the catalytic converter. Lots of lights will flash, but there is no danger other than not being able to use cruise control. We would have had it replaced by now, but it is pretty expensive to have replaced.

The Subaru outback is a great car to travel in.

2013 Subaru Outback 2.5i

The car is very comfortable. We wanted a car to use for long distance travel. This car is perfect. Other cars didn't have the front passenger room that the outback has. We also like the space in the rear of the car. With the seats folded down we were able to put a 70 inch TV in the car. I also buy lumber, which fits in the car. The feature I like best is the rear view camera for backing up. I have difficulty turning to see behind me, but with the camera I do not have to do that. Finally, we like the all wheel drive that is standard in all Subaru vehicles.

No problems! Keep up recommended service and I have had no extra costs.

2013 Subaru Outback 2.5i

I love my Subaru outback because it is easy to handle, a quiet ride, has the safety features I require, and is economical to own and run. I take my outback to my dealer for service, and never seem to need more than the miles check up suggests'I've had no major problems ever with my car. The Subaru dealer is also great to work with as they go above and beyond in cleaning and buffing out small scratches when I bring my car in for service.

Some good and bad qualities on 2013 Subaru Outback

2013 Subaru Outback 2.5i

The cruise control doesn't work sometimes but any time something is wrong or fluid levels are low an alert pops up on the dashboard and that is very helpful. It even alerts you if your tire pressure is low I love the heated seats they are great on cold winter days I also like that I have a rear view camera for backing up. I do have an issue with the quality of the speakers though they cut in and out

Perfect in city/ out of city adventure vehicle

2013 Subaru Outback 2.5i

It's a great city car that can take us out of the city and onto adventures. It has an amazing turning radius- best I've ever had so parking in a city is cake. It maneuvers excellent in the snow and mountains, and has tons of room so storing gear isn't a problem! I live that it gets pretty great gas mileage and sits up higher on the road than a car.

All-around best car' -great for trips, transport, comfort, and reliability.

2013 Subaru Outback 2.5i

The best feature is the amount of remit has when you put the seats down. We have bought furniture and transported to other large items in the car with no problem at all. We really love the backseat pull down drink holder. We like that there's lots of legroom, and of course we like the reliability of the car. We've had no problems at all.

- Christina C

A great, reliable car with one exception.

2013 Subaru Outback 2.5i

It's a very comfortable and reliable vehicle to drive. For an SUV, the gas mileage is also really good. The only problem, I would say, is that it tends to need an oil change more often than I would like. Especially since it tends to eat up oil faster than most vehicles. But other than that, a sweet ride.

Subaru: a safe, reliable traveling companion.

2013 Subaru Outback 2.5i

Subarus have carried me up and down the alcan highway 6 times with no problem worse than a flat tire. They have an excellent safety rating. I have owned 5 and after had over 255000 worry free miles with everyone. I will buy no other make of automobile and advice my friends and family to do the same.

My cars name is Wednesday

2013 Subaru Outback 2.5i

The back up camera stopped working and wish there was air vents in the back seats. I also wished it had a compass on the display on the rear view camera. The headlights are expensive to replace due to having to bring it into the dealership. I wish it came in a more wide variety of colors as well

- Miranda E

Super Satisfied With Subaru

2013 Subaru Outback 2.5i

Vehicle performs very well. Extremely reliable and I really like how safe the car is. Since buying it, we have never needed a repair due to anything breaking down. The only issue I have is that it seems to need oil quite frequently. That being said, I would definitely buy this car again.

- Renee K

The most interesting detail is the gas mileage

2013 Subaru Outback 2.5i

This car is great. No mechanical problems. The ride is wonderful but the best feature is the gas mileage. The storage area in the back holds two full size golf bags. The vision is great with no blind spots. I am getting over 27 miles per gallon in the city and 30 on the highway.

- Tom T

The Subaru outback is outstanding

2013 Subaru Outback 2.5i

My Subaru outback is outstanding, it has been the most reliable vehicle I've ever purchased. It has needed very little maintenance, has fantastic fuel efficiency, runs smoothly, and gets up to speed quickly. I would recommend the Subaru outback to anyone in need of a midsize SUV.
