"This is a great car that I bought new as I usually keep cars till they wear out. I fully expect this car to last to 200,000 miles or more. I use this car to transport kayaks and bikes and it is perfect in that regard. It drives better in the snow than a Jeep. Its low center of gravity gives one a great feeling of solidity and security. This car has quickly become my favorite vehicle ever."
"I just bought a 2010 Outback. I had driven a 2006 Subaru Forester for 4 years, put 88,000 miles on it and found it to be incredibly reliable. After having a baby, I needed more interior space. I looked at lots of different cars, but none compared to the Outback.
It has far more rear leg room and cargo space than any other vehicle I could find (without getting into the mega-huge SUVs). It's a nice ride. I got the Outback in black, and it's a really sharp looking car. And I think it's the safest car for traveling with baby. If this Outback proves to be as reliable as my old Forester, I doubt I'll ever buy anything but a Subaru again."
Pros: "Handles great in the snow. Gets reasonable mileag"
Cons: "Hubby hates the seat belt beeper"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"I like just about everything about the car. The only downside is that the mileage isn't as good as I hoped it would be. I do a lot of start and stop driving, so my avg mpg is only about 25. There have been 2 or 3 minor recall items that would have been a real pain if I lived further from the dealership."
"We have owned 12 other Subarus and we must state that this is by far the best!! We've always felt that the rear seating and legroom needed improvement, and the all new design certainly provides that. It has outstanding reliability combined with superior fit and finish."
