"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."
"I've had my 08 Outback for 3 years almost, and I have not had one problem with it! It's very tight, comfortable, dependable, and the AWD makes seasonal driving worry free as well. I would highly reccommend this car."
"We have owned 4 Subarus and all station wagons and 3 of them are still on the road. We have owned a 1992, 1995, 2004 & 2008. The 95, 04 & 08 are still on the road. The 95 has about 300,000 miles, the 04 has over 117,000 miles and the 08 has just over 44,000.
An excellent car. Very little maintenance to it.
I would reccomend this vechile to anyone who wants a good all around car . Our next car, my husband says, will be another Subaru."
