More than just a wagon, the Outback is an intriguing alternative to a traditional midsized SUV. It has more cargo space than most seemingly larger competitors, less thirst for fuel, and a lower price. Functionally, it does everything most midsized SUVs can do -- except tow a heavy load. Subaru has split the difference between a wagon and a crossover, creating a winning combination.

"When bought, the voice was intermittent. They replaced a part and it works now. However, the Nav system is the most rudimentary I have seen on a recent car. It speaks in cave man talk "Turn right at corner" and does not name streets even though that function is turned on in the settings. The tracker is consistently about 100 feet off ("turn right in 100 feet) - when I am literally in the middle of the intersection).

"The LCD display screen for the infotainment center (GPS/AM-FM Radio/SiriusXM radop/CD/Car information system/backup display, etc) developed rows of squiggly lines going completely across the entire screen. These rows of squiggly lines covered the entire screen. The display was difficult to view as a result. The dealer attempted to try to correct the issue by performing a firmware update on the system. The update did NOT correct the display issue and broke many of the functions of the infotainment system. At that point, the dealer ordered an entire new infotainment system and replaced the unit in my car with the new one. The entire system has worked fine ever since."

"Rubber seals on both front doors needed to be replaced. First Seal needed to be replaced within 2 weeks of purchasing vehicle due to wind noise. Second rubber seal was replaced approx 6 months later. Repair left side view mirror locked in awkward position and needed to be corrected at dealer. Windows sometimes do not go up and stay up due to safety precaution thinking something is blocking the window to close. It's very irritating and takes multiple attempts to get the window to close and stay closed."
