Used Subaru Outback: In Depth


USED SUBARU OUTBACK REVIEWS

2001 Subaru Outback
Excellent quality, reliability and performance. Just requires simple maintenance and services. I purchased it as a daily driver; primarily during the winter. Really like the AWD.

MODEL OVERVIEW

Subaru introduced the Outback in 2000, and for the past 14-years drivers have had updated models with new and improved features. From day one the Outback was a hit, providing drivers with SUV accommodations in a smaller sized vehicle without a loss of features. More than 116,000 Subaru Outbacks have been sold in each of the past two years alone. With six Outback trims available, drivers can easily find the right style for their needs. The MSRP of the base model 2.5i starts at $23,495, while the top of the line 3.6R Limited has a MSRP of $32,095. Excellent deals can also be had on used models.

With EPA estimated gas mileage of 24 MPG in the city and 30 on the highway, you’ll enjoy fewer fill-ups. Along with solid fuel savings, you’ll also enjoy great features like heated seats, tilt-and telescoping steering wheel, spacious cabin room with space for six people, as well as the extra cargo room.

While four generations of the Subaru Outback are available, you might want to start your used Outback search with third generation models that were introduced in 2005. These vehicles were praised for their new design, giving them a more SUV-like appearance, tons of standard features, more horsepower, and above average handling and dynamics.

SAFETY RATINGS

You can drive the Outback with assurance knowing that the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety honored this vehicle as the 2013 “Top Safety Pick.”

Among the ways the current Subaru Outback keeps you protected is with their Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive braking system, helping you stay on the road in all weather conditions. Other standard safety features offered on the new Outback include a boxer style engine to reduce impacts, Vehicle Dynamics Control, and a rollover sensor.

NOTEWORTHY ABOUT THE SUBARU OUTBACK

EyeSight Driver Assist is featured on new models of the Subaru Outback. This feature serves as a second set of eyes to keep you safe while you’re on the roads. EyeSight helped the Outback earn “superior” ratings from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

CNBC also had high remarks for the new Subaru Outback, stating its crash avoidance system was above average and actually helped prevent crashes. The Outback was the highest rated vehicle out of the study.

I was recently looking to buy a used Subaru Outback. I found one that the CARFAX showed to be a one owner vehicle with no accidents, and that it had been dealer serviced throughout it's entire life. This information helped me make my decision to buy.
