Why the 2010 Subaru Outback?

Materials & workmanship

Having no previous knowledge of the brand, our test drive was a promising experience- the Outback is well engineered & properly assembled.

Powertrain performance

The 3.6 was a fantastic engine for this vehicle, the 2.5 was merely adequate.

Front seat support & comfort

The driver's seat with its 10 way adjustments was rival to Volvo's orthopedic chair. The passenger seat, however was akin to something out of a Yaris & this was the main reason we did not buy this car.

Price or payments

Price new was $33K; about the same as every other car we considered, including the LR2, C300, XC70.

Exterior styling

The 2010 model goes for a wierd look, but when actually using the car- it made sense. the 2007-2009 Outbacks are a good looking body style.

Why Not the 2010 Subaru Outback?

Front seat support & comfort

There are no adjustements for height, lumbar or tilt for the passenger in any of the available trim levels. We would have bought this car new from the dealer otherwise.

Powertrain performance

There is no 6 speed manual transmission available for the Outback with the 3.6; another reason we did not buy.
