The Outback wagon has long been a popular all-wheel-drive alternative to a small SUV, especially for those living in more northern climes. It's a very practical package, with great visibility, a roomy back seat and a spacious cargo hold. Fuel economy is a class-leading 24 mpg overall. The four-cylinder version has long been impressive, but the Outback isn't exactly a pleasure to drive.

What Owners Say

"There is an issue with the rear differential where a definitive clunk is heard when shifting from reverse to drive. The second dealership agrees there is an issue and kept the car for several weeks troubleshooting the problem even replacing the struts but the noise is still there."

"Poor acceleration."

John G., CT (2014 Subaru Outback)

"The ride is very smooth and the handling responsive and secure. Acceleration unimpressive."

Robert E., NY (2014 Subaru Outback)

"Transmission whine on acceleration is bothersome. I thought car was defective."

Anonymous, UT (2014 Subaru Outback)

"Acceleration is sluggish. Handling is sloppy. At highway speeds in a tight turn there is a bit of a "roll over" feeling. Drives like a SUV not like a Subaru."

"This vehicle has the 2.5 Liter engine. I find that the engine, with the CVT Transmission has very poor acceleration when leaving an intersection. (Even though you have lots of room it feels like you can't get out of the other cars way). I have a Toyota Matrix with a 1.8 Liter engine with a 5 Speed Manual Transmission that has no problem in this area."

Sheldon Q., AB (2014 Subaru Outback)

"Acceleration is usually adequate, but could be a little better for tight lane mergers on interstates."

Richard L., TN (2014 Subaru Outback)

Anonymous, CA (2014 Subaru Outback)

"The 2014 3.6R Subaru Outback has a 5-speed automatic, which gives it very quick acceleration for a family wagon - 0 to 60 in 7.1 seconds. The car's responsiveness and handling is excellent, far better than any Ford or VW wagon I have driven. It has the most comfortable long-distance ride of any car I have owned before."

Alan H., NJ (2014 Subaru Outback)

"good control in all road conditions"

Laurie G., MI (2014 Subaru Outback)

"The CVT transmission is a piece of crap ! You have to push the pedal all the way to the floor and wait for the car to decide to move and then pray your up to speed enough to not cause an accident getting onto busy highway traffic. The overall mileage is great, but too many times you are waiting for the transmission to "catch up" to everything and everyone else going on around it. CVT is not the transmission for "heavy traffic congestion" to feel safe with."

"The biggest issue with driving the Subaru Outback is that it tends to hesitate when pressing the accelerator. This causes you to press a bit harder and then it lunges a bit because you gave it more gas. It is very hard to do an even slow start."

ROSS S., ON (2014 Subaru Outback)

"good acceleration and supperb handling"

BORIS T., WI (2014 Subaru Outback)

"Acceleration is terrible. The engine revs up; the 'rubber band transmission' winds up; the car slowly accelerates until it gets a bit of a slingshot boost, as if from a stretched rubber band. The CVT transmission causes the car to decelerate too much when 'coasting' up to a turn, a stop sign, interstate exit, etc."

PHILLIP W., WY (2014 Subaru Outback)

"I'm not really enthusiastic about the CVT transmission. When shifting between forward and reverse, they car will drift just a tiny bit before it 'catches'. When cold, shifts a bit 'jerky'. Both are more annoying than unsafe. Don't want to go back to the dealer at this point; afraid they might make it worse."

WILLIAM D., PA (2014 Subaru Outback)

TERRY D., OH (2014 Subaru Outback)

"Road noise, somewhat harsh ride, and slight vagueness about going where I aim it at high speed. I think all are most likely related to the tires, which are the originals. CVT has a little bit of a rubber band quality and wanders a bit, particularly at lower speeds, but delivers good mileage (25.5 over 9000 miles of mixed driving). Acceleration is not great. I still love the car, because it does well what I want it to do, which is to carry good sized loads, handle roads that require high clear"

"Vehicle developed a runaway acceleration problem in 2016. At low speeds when I remove my foot from the accelerator for stopped traffic or a red light, the engine revs up to 3500-4000 rpm, then immediately returns to normal idle about 800 rpm. To keep from ramming another vehicle or running a red light, I have to either literally stand on the brake or put the auto gearshift in neutral. This occurs every 3-4 weeks. Problem does not show up on the diagnostics nor can the dealer reproduce it. I had the dealer install a camera which recorded the problem around 8/9/18. Dealer sent recording to regional office which denied the occurrence stating I must have pressed the gas pedal! This kind of lying by a company that brags about its emphasis on safety is outrageous.

"Sometimes starting out from a stop the car is slow to accelerate or has a jerky, rubber-band feel to it"

Matt C., NY (2014 Subaru Outback)

"The handling is fantastic. Its tight turning radius, all wheel drive and low CG make the car solid, safe and a pleasure to drive. I also like the high ground clearance. My wife uses this car primarily and says she thinks it's her favorite car out of all we have owned in our 49 years of marriage."

"This was my 5th Subaru, I have recently traded it in for a 2018 Outback... This alone should tell you how I feel about this product. Having said that, the all-wheel-drive limited slip Subaru system is the best in the business. And it's perfect for handling winter Pennsylvania roads... BOTH paved and unpaved. This vehicles drives excellently in ALL conditions"

"As expected, it's no rocket ship, but when you really need to get going (passing, etc), it does have the power to do so. Normally, I never have to press the engine in normal driving. Top RPM in most cases is 3K,"

"It could have a bit more power"

Lowell S., SD (2014 Subaru Outback)

"Love the isight system: adaptive cruse control, lane departure warning, automatic braking to prevent collisions, Automatic change of cruse control speed to even multiple of 5 mph with a single click, e.g. 75, 70, 65, 60, 55, 50, 45, 40, 35, 30, 25."

Mac C., VA (2014 Subaru Outback)

"I had formerly had a 2011 Legacy with the CVT. The 2014 version is much improved from an acceleration and overall handling standpoint. That said, acceleration is relatively leisurely. Steering is also greatly improved in my 2014-more responsive and somewhat lighter. Overall, you are never fooled into thinking that this car has "sporty" handling in any way. Car manages well in urban traffic. Winter weather handling is excellent. The AWD has been a life saver in our winter back country driving. Snow and uneven surfaces have been handled excellently."

Larry P., MN (2014 Subaru Outback)

"We live in Maine and the Subaru is a great all around vehicle. You can get it serviced at any reputable garage."

Peter D., ME (2014 Subaru Outback)

"The most valuable feature in this car with respect to driving is the 'eyesight' features include out of lane warning, collision warning automatic distance control from the vehicle in front while under cruise control. These are excellent features and work well 95% of the time making long distance driving much more relaxing"

John G., FL (2014 Subaru Outback)

"Best car I have owned when it comes to positive handling in the winter. I install Blizzak snow tires on all four rims. I drive up to ski resorts in difficult snow conditions throughout the winter and the Outback provides a level of traction that is unsurpassed. It is adequately comfortable in long distance highway driving. His car is one of the best in its category."

"Excellent adjustable lumbar support for driver's seat. Wish the passenger seat had similar."

Richard L., TN (2014 Subaru Outback)

"The driver's side headrest forces the head forward & transmits every road flaw to the skull. The shifter has a direct slide from drive to manual which can be engaged unintentionally while driving. The heating & AC air flow is adequate but not strong and not sufficient for the Arizona summers. Air flow beyond the front seat is minimal at best. The seating is comfortable. Good headroom, storage space and audio system. Smooth ride."
