"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."
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."
"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."
