Quick, go anywhere, family car
We bought this car when it was brand new. We put it in the shop for regular maintenance, and nothing ever goes wrong with all of the Subarus we have ever had. I don't know why they put those Firestone wilderness tires on it though.
This car is pretty quick and feels good on the highway. All Subarus have very good reliability.
In the past we had a Subaru GL wagon, and we drove it for 208000 miles, and then traded it in for 1500 dollars, and got a 1993 Subaru Impreza L with 68000 miles, drove it up to 198000 miles, and got 2700 on trade for the Outback. We will probably drive this one until the 200000 mile mark, and then get a Subaru Impreza WRX.
The Outback handles like a sports car; we took a corner that is rated at 25mph, but we went 55 and the tires did not screech and we stayed in our seat. Plus you get pretty close to 30 miles per gallon.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
