The Subaru Outback has a quiet cabin, a spacious rear-seat and a capacious cargo area. Handling is good in routine driving, but clumsy when pushed to the limits. With its four-cylinder engine and CVT, the Outback gets very good fuel economy for this class. Acceleration is just adequate, though, and the engine can be noisy when it's pressed. The optional six-cylinder engine is quieter and quicker, though less fuel efficient.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

What Owners Say

"A terrific ride, handling, turning radius. Great city care in particular."

Anonymous, AB (2011 Subaru Outback)

"I live in the mountains and travel a canyon road to get to the valley 3 - 4 times a week. If the need to accelerate arises, the acceleration is there. It's rather starting to be able pass quickly when needed, even going up a steep area."

C H., CO (2011 Subaru Outback)

"Just two demerits: doesn't always have enough power to maintain speed or accelerate up large hills / mountains; and makes a lot of noise during acceleration. Otherwise we are satisfied."

ROBERT P., NY (2011 Subaru Outback)

"Acceleration is adequate. Handling very good."

PETER M., QC (2011 Subaru Outback)

"Acceleration is satisfactory but not great. The one off road experience (going around a jackknifed truck on a back road in Nevada) show the advantage of good ground clearance and all wheel drive. Suspension handles rough surfaces well and makes for a more comfortable ride."

NORMAN J., OR (2011 Subaru Outback)

"BAD. Rear view visibility is very poor for detecting another vehicle when changing lanes both to the left and to the right. A definite safety issue which would persuade me NOT to buy this vehicle again. Otherwise, fine."

Anonymous, MA (2011 Subaru Outback)

"The 4 cylinder engine is just slightly under powered. It could use another 35 - 40 HP"

Anonymous, MA (2011 Subaru Outback)

"4 cylinder engine really strains on mountain roads; transmission does not readily downshift to lower gears when situation calls for downshift."

Anonymous, NC (2011 Subaru Outback)

"It doesn't hold on a slight rise as well as I think it should or, as well as say, the Jeep I had before did. But that was the only good thing about that Jeep."

BETSY B., ME (2011 Subaru Outback)

"Wish the car had just a bit more power when merging onto the highway. The CVT doesn't provide that immediate response when you hit the gas. Plus, the CVT can be loud."

TODD P., MI (2011 Subaru Outback)

"Steering is not precise. Doesn't not return to center adequately. Sloppy steering during avoidance maneuvers and around corners."

LYLE W., WI (2011 Subaru Outback)

"Great acceleration no feeling of shifting"

JOEL S., OR (2011 Subaru Outback)

"impressive acceleration for a 4 cyl, handles more like a car than an SUV"

DAVID C., MA (2011 Subaru Outback)

""All-Wheel" handling and traction control are outstanding."

Anonymous, WA (2011 Subaru Outback)

"Have 4 cyl model. Gets 22 city & 28+ on highway @70mph. Very good for awd model. Tradeoff is somewhat slower acceleration that you must compensate for on highway. Could use another 30 horsepower. And 6 speed trans. CVT takes too long to "spool up". Suspension is very compliant; great on highway. Great ground clearance."

SAMUEL N., KY (2011 Subaru Outback)

BRUCE B., NY (2011 Subaru Outback)

"We live on a mountain dirt road, about 12 miles from pavement. The Suburu rear wheels tend to collect mud a get out of balance. They are difficult to clean well. This seems very wrong for a car that's advertised as being designed for dirt roads. Other than this annoying feature, The Suburu handles well on snow and ice and for light off road travel."

"Ice and snow handling are superb"

DAVID W., AR (2011 Subaru Outback)

"Backing up is problematic because you have to step on the accelerator to get it to start moving instead of just letting up on the brake as most cars do. I think this is due to the CVT transmission. This makes it somewhat more dangerous because if something comes behind as you are backing up, you need to switch peddles quickly to stop. It is also sluggish on accelerating."

"Very comfortable, handles well and accelerates well. Heated seats are great but the foot heating in the winter time is lacking. Getting fresh air out of the vent is frustrating and sometimes get a humid smell when I turn off the air conditioner. Modern cars depend so much on the automation that trying to manually control the climate doesn't always work but that is probably not exclusive to Subaru. Design of the car is great but it took me along time to get used to the loss of vision through"
