Summary:

Fantastic Subaru quality, and great fun to drive

Faults:

Nothing so far, the car is beautiful to look at and be in, and drives so smoothly with the new Lineatronic CVT transmission.

The car is the top on the range model, loaded with boys toys.

Got a cracking deal from the Subaru dealer in Leeds - as always.

Only went in to have a puncture fixed and came out with a new car - fell in love with the Outback on sight.

General Comments:

Love the full leather and the rear camera, seems very comfortable and relaxed when driving.

Has a certain poise and presence on the road.

This is my third Subaru, the previous two were fault free for the whole time of ownership - I expect this one to be the same

Update on my previous missive.

Now done 8000 miles and totally fault-free, as expected.

I love the auto parking brake, which applies itself when standing still on a hill and releases when you touch the throttle. One slight gripe is that this auto hill holder, as it is called, has to be switched on manually every time you start the engine - why can't it be on by default and you switch it off when you don't want it?

Aside from that small gripe, it is a truly fantastic car with great dealer service.
