Why the 2007 Subaru Outback?

Reliability & durability

High resale value. Subaru has a very strong following. Many sales are to multiple Subaru vehicle owners. High-end materials are used in the manufacturing process. Even with US assembly, the Outback is very well put together.

Safety & braking

Almost all Subarus made the IIHS.org top safety picks. This results in SIGNIFICANT insurance savings in the long run. Compared to a Mazda6 Wagon, Audi A3, Volvo T5 and Cross-country, the Subaru is much cheaper to insure (at least in my jurisdicton).

Brand reputation & image

Excellent and consistent reliability. The boxer engine is very smooth and consistently powered through all rpms.

Safety & braking

Very safe vehicle. Excellent crash test results. Safety and construction plays important part in insurance premiums. Insuring a Subaru is much cheaper than competition.

Why Not the 2007 Subaru Outback?

Fuel economy

Six cylinders matched to full-time AWD makes for a thristy ride. Ability to shut off AWD in certain aspects would be beneficial in some circumstances. The turbocharger requires extra maintenance and premium gas. The I4 is the way to go.

Price or payments

Very high resale values and popularity make the car very popular for resales. Unfortunately the vehicle has a higher sticker price. This is easily offset in the long run on reliability.
