My Subaru outback is the ultimate camp/adventure car.

2017 Subaru Outback Base

Becoming a Subaru driver is probably one of the best decisions I have made. Subaru's are notable for their reliability and that has proven to be true in the 3 years I have been driving my car. So far in the 35,000 miles I have driven, Subaru has had my back through my own mistakes (never my car's fault). When I run out of gas I can rest easy knowing that Subaru roadside (complementary with the lease) will show up within 30 minutes or less. Additionally, the people at the dealership treat you like family, know you by name, and help explain all maintenance that they perform on your car. It is also a plus that they are a charitable and environmentally conscious company!

The Best and Safest Car, My Subaru

2017 Subaru Outback Base

Besides all the cameras, lights, telephone Bluetooth, my Subaru forded four streams, and pushed another car stuck in the stream. I go tent camping, and I can load up all my needs for a two week trip. I have a rack on top for extras. The car is comfortable and the seats move easily on electricity. The 4 wheel drive is easy to obtain, and the extras for dirt, bumpy roads Ade driving smoother. I guess my best love is the reverse camera, so I can see what is going on without straining my neck. There are also 'sounds' to warn me.

Great car. Cool features, but a few concerns.

2017 Subaru Outback Base

I love my car. It runs great, and the backup camera is super useful. The dual air conditioning is great for multiple passengers, but there is little air flow for people sitting in the back. The electric parking brake is nice, but it does provide a safety concern in my breaks ever do not work, because you cannot activate it when driving.

I love the safety features such as back up alert and blind spot detection.

2017 Subaru Outback Base

I love my vehicle. It is reliable and a joy to drive. The only complaint I have is that it has too many features and it is difficult to remember what all the controls are for. It drives very smoothly and is comfortable on short or long rides. Many of the safety features make me feel safer driving.

Big fan of the Subaru outback

2017 Subaru Outback Base

The size and reliability of the Subaru outback are great. I really like the stowaway crossbars. The MPG is great from city and highway driving. I feel comfortable and safe when driving myself and my family in the city and on the highways. The trunk space allows for easy packing for long family trips.

My Car and the slow drivers

2017 Subaru Outback Base

Great car. Rides nicely, I am able to go 90+ on the highway with no problem. I have passed old men in corvettes with no problem. I really hate it when people drive in the left lane and drive slow. That is extremely rude. My vehicle has plenty of room in the trunk area and the back seat is very roomie

Versatile outdoor vehicle

2017 Subaru Outback Base

The 2017 Subaru Outback is an extremely comfortable vehicle that still provides a good level of performance. The perfect family vehicle that can take you on many outdoor adventures. With heated seats, stain and water resistant interior you will not find a better traveling vehicle.

3.6 liter has all the power!

2017 Subaru Outback Base

My car has the 3.6 liter engine and it really makes a difference. The power is much better than a 2.5 liter. The seats are comfortable. It's very roomy inside. I also love that you can set a memory to the back hatch in case you have a rocket box that hangs over like we did.

- Erika W

The sunroof on the vehicle is awesome!

2017 Subaru Outback Base

I love my Subaru Outback. It is a reliable and durable family vehicle! It has many different capabilities and functions I didn't know were possible. It is as big as a SUV but small that you don't feel overpowered by your vehicle. My favorite feature is the backup camera!
