"Very comfortable, drives and has the road feel of a substantial car. The anti-lock brakes, all wheel drive and traction control make it super safe with great handling, stopping ability and road feel. Good looking and well-appointed roomy interior. Fully power adjustable seats with lumbar support makes driving comfortable. Power moonroof and visibility out rear and side windows are excellent. Have had seven Subaru Legacys/Outbacks in past 27 years."
"This has been a great car for me. The leather package and giant moon roof gives it a rich feel. The engine has endless power and the mileage of the turbo version is decent. Be sure to run premium fuel or you'll be replacing fuel injectors! Oh, and have plenty of spare headlamps, one burns out every four months or so on one side or the other. This never bothered me since I can change them fairly easily."
"It is comfortable on long trips. The electric driver's seat makes it easy to make small adjustments that make the trip more comfortable. The acceleration is amazing, but I have found myself going at speeds that bear no resemblance to the posted speed limit!
It handles well on back roads. The extra clearance comes in handy for going through "puddles" after very heavy rains as well as dealing with mud and snow.
It is easy to get loads in and out of the car because the bed is totally flat inside. Even the seats fold down easily to make lots of extra room for big packages.
Nothing rattles and there are no annoying buzzes or noises even after 79,000 miles. The car looks as good today as the day I drove it off the lot.
All of this for just regular maintenance and new tires as needed.
All I could wish for is better gas mileage, but it isn't bad at 22-24MPG for a 6 cylinder AWD vehicle that does lots of local driving."
