Default 17 Outback Review

My car was in the shop and I got a brand new 17 Outback with 9 miles on it as a loaner. The car handled pretty nice for how big it was, got decent gas mileage, and was very practical for my side business. I have never owned an SUV or hatchback, and now I find myself needing one.

The basics, I love the fact that the Outback(which was pretty base) had a great stereo and auto headlights. The seats I found to be very soft at first but I now miss them driving my WRX. The glove box and ARMREST was also a game changer for me.

Negatives, I found the brake pedal to be strange, as if I pressed down on it a certain way my shoe would get stuck to it. I hate the transmission. It felt like minutes going from reverse to forward or forward to reverse, the car would jump forward afterwards. I'm also not a fan of the e-brake button(but what can you do?).

Overall, I think its a great, practical SUV for under 27k. I won't be buying one due to the trans but I think most cars in it's class will have a similar situation. In day to day driving it beats the hell out of my WRX in all facets besides fun.

I was very sad when they stopped offering he outback with a proper gearbox (last I checked there was no manual option any more), just got my 04' 2.5 NA 5 speed, my first Subaru! Glad to hear the new ones are still nice to drive besides the slush box.
