Outstanding vehicle, highly recommended.

I love this car! It is my first SUV style vehicle and I love riding up high. The suspension and shocks are great, leading to a smooth ride. It handles much more like a car than a truck, which is a huge plus. I have the tan leather interior and I have been really pleased with the durability and ease of cleaning the seats. I have 2 kids, so they always make a mess, but things wipe up easily. I have had the car almost 4 years and I am still on my original breaks. I live in the Midwest and do not need snow tires! The standard tires paired with the all wheel drive really helps handle all types of weather. I have had no mechanical problems or issues with the car in my entire ownership of the car. My original tires lasted about 3.5 years. I think one of the only things that bugs me is that the gas door release it is on the floor. Since I am short, I have to open the door to pop the gas door, even if someone else is filling the tank. Oh, other tiny thing is I wish the all weather floor mats had more reinforcement where they hook to the floor, as my driver's side holes have ripped out. . I adore this car. It was absolutely worth the years I had wait to own it.

Subaru is a great, reliable family car that I highly recommend!

Problems would include rear camera constantly easily covered so hard to see out of, no real room for a trash can easily accessible for the driver that my kids cannot get into, and the glasses holder on the top middle broke the day I bought the car. Performance I would say is amazing because it is great in bad winter weather, easy to steer even in bad mud since I live on a dirt road, and starts even when it is 0 degrees outside. Reliable is great. I never have to worry about it not starting. It is very comfortable with the heated seats, cloth material, and easy to change positions of the seat. Features I love from the truck being able to be opened automatically, heated seats, rear camera, the line markers that tell you if you are crossing the lines, and how my phone can connect to the car. Overall I love my Subaru! Excellent for a small growing family!

A great car, but could use some ergonomic detail improvements.

I really loved my Outback in the beginning when we first bought it. I love the feel of how it drives, and the space/storage capacity is fantastic. Our daughter plays a large instrument, so we needed the room to transport it. There were a few things I began to notice over time, though. The steering is hard, and I began to get achy in my arms. I guess I have gotten used to that by now, but there is also a ergonomic issue with the seats. I think the seats were made for a man. The lumbar support is in the wrong place. I need to use a combination of pillows to support my back. We also needed to use the warranty one time to replace the horn which went out completely on us. A small thing, but important. All in all, I still really like my Subaru.
