Practical SAFE car with plenty of passenger space and great trunk space!

2017 Subaru Outback Limited

This car is amazing in the snow and rain! I feel very safe driving in it with my kids because of all the safety features. One safety feature is that upon front impact the engine drops down from the car preventing people in the front from getting their legs crushed. It also has special side impact design so I feel my kids are very safe should I get hit on the side of my car. The gas mileage is pretty good. I have the Limited edition that includes great extras such as heated seats in the front and back. When I was shopping for cars most of them only had heated seats in the front. It also has built in navigation which is very convenient instead of having to use my phone. The map always show where you are and what the speed limit is. The ride is a typical mid sized car. Not smooth like a Cadillac but not rough and bumpy like compact cars. I see so many very old Subaru Outbacks still driving around on the roads so I feel mine will last me a long time.

2017 Subaru Outback premium.

2017 Subaru Outback

I recently bought a new Subaru Outback. I love having the 4 wheel drive option as I am an avid outdoors person. I also have 2 dogs who love the vehicle and the extra space that they can lay down in the back. I haven't had the car for too long so I cannot speak to reliability; but it does come with a great warranty and option to purchase additional warranty. The Subaru’s aren't known as best in class for features; however I do feel like they offer the things that mattered most to me. I bought a more baseline model but it still came with my favorite features: connectivity for Bluetooth/android auto/apple carplay and heated seats. The car is very comfortable to ride in and has little road noise, great suspension even on tougher trails, and great amounts of space. My husband and I even took it camping and due to rain ended up sleeping fairly comfortably in the back.

Good gas mileage and many optional safety features if you're willing to pay extra for them.

2017 Subaru Outback

Like: safety features like lane change warning, vehicle ahead stop/start warning, warning for approaching an object too closely, Eyesight features, headlight turns with steering wheel, separate battery for engine and separate for internal electrics, roomy driver/passenger area, driver power seat, global direction on rear view mirror, garage door open feature, excellent mileage without having to scale down to a smaller vehicle, split rear seat, power windows, spoiler, tinted windows, external weather temperature gauge, rear view camera. Dislike: A bit too long -- barely fits into garage. Has good mileage but the accelerator response is not good and car actually rolls back a little on an incline before the accelerator kicks in. This dislike has been mentioned on independent car reviews so I've accepted this little foible about the slow acceleration response.
