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.

Mark B., NM (2018 Subaru Outback)

"This car is amazing. it practically drives itself. keeps you in your lane, stops when vehicles in front of you stop. slows down on the highway when approaching another vehicle in front of you. if you turn on blinker to pass it will speed up. I absolutely love it"

Anonymous, MD (2018 Subaru Outback)

"Absolutely love the automated cruise control where on interstate you can set speed and desired distance from vehicle in front of you. It makes highway driving easier and safer by far than just cruise control alone. For me, the 3.6R is a vast improvement over the 2.5 liter Subaru outback I previously owned. The acceleration and handling improvement is well worth the reduced gas mileage from the larger engine."

"I don't know what happened, but only a week or so after I bought this new Subaru Outback it suddenly wouldn't work at all. The tow truck driver also tried to start it to no avail. It tried to start, but it just wouldn't! We had to have it towed to the nearest dealership and then they couldn't find anything wrong with it! So we sort of have a waiting to see attitude about it,"

Richard K., CT (2018 Subaru Outback)

"I love everything about it. Great acceleration, great suspension on curves. The only thing that bothers me is when the auto-lane correction feature is turned on, the car turns itself back into the lane too abruptly when on curves...so obviously this feature should be turned off when on curvy roads, but it works well on straight stretches and in multi-lane traffic on relatively straight highways."

Anonymous, KY (2018 Subaru Outback)

"The performance is quite adequate for this type of vehicle - it pulls strongly on long uphill grades, although does not accelerate quickly at highway speeds. (It wouldn't be fair to compare it with my Audi A4 in terms of acceleration and handling, though.) The vehicle has sufficient mass that it doesn't respond instantly to throttle inputs - but that is not unexpected."

Ronald B., CA (2018 Subaru Outback)

"Acceleration from first gear is too abrupt for me. I prefer a smoother application of power and it’s tricky to modulate. Handling is ok in city driving and good for highway driving. Overall I like the smooth shifting of the variable ratio automatic transmission compared to any previous vehicle I’ve driven. In addition the transmission downshifts very smoothly which is a great aid for driving in hilly terrain using cruise control."

Laura B., WI (2018 Subaru Outback)

"The Outback rides very similar to the Audi A-4 I used to own. Steering is precise and predictable, no body lean. Powers right through turns and steers easily. Suspension absorbs bumps and they are not felt by the driver. I find the acceleration with the 4-cylinder entirely adequate, with plenty of pep. I do not need the lower gas mileage and increased power of the V-6, and the six adds significantly to the vehicle cost. The 4-wheel drive is like a tank in rain and snow - surefooted and not even a hint of slip. This is our third Subaru - we love the Subaru drive train and these vehicles are reliable and a great value."

"I like the audio, I really like the side view mirror warning lights when there is a car in the drivers blind spot. I frequently dive on I-95 in the Philadelphia area and this feature is very helpful. One point about the Subaru in general is that the seats are somewhat uncomfortable, lacking cushion, the longer the drive the more hard and uncomfortable they feel. People mention this particularly about the rear seating."

Anonymous, PA (2018 Subaru Outback)

"The automatic transmission is a CVT which, by its nature should provide smooth, steady acceleration and instant power delivery. Instead, it is saddled with simulated "shift points" to emulate a less-capable and refined geared transmission. WHY!!!? Instead of instant throttle response, the computer has to think about it and simulate an abrupt pseudo "downshift" to keep up the charade. This severely blunts driving enjoyment and satisfaction. I would probably not buy this car again."

"This is my second Subaru Outback. It is a great car in all respects but two. First, the cabin could be quieter. It is not a deal breaker; however, Subaru could improve the noise level entering the interior. Second, the transmission in my 4 cylinder is very peppy but jerky in starting off in first gear. This is clearly an ongoing issue since I experienced the same in my 2013 Outback. A smoother start in first gear would be nice."

Chevy Cruz) makes a big difference- especially on a long trip. I liked the Japanese cars better, overall, though!"

What I found that while the seat adjust fine this vehicle doesn't adjust the side mirrors(which I have seen on any vehicle that has this feature) and is a pain to then to have to adjust them every time we change.
