2014 Outback Owner Reviews (2)
2014 Outback review
I own a 2014 Outback Limited with the Eyesight adaptive cruise control. This is my second Subaru the first being a 1995 LSI wagon. My car has been to California and back to the East Coast. I currently have over 45,000 on this car and I have never gotten less than 25 mpg. I keep my own records and do not rely solely on the cars estimate. This is a great car in the snow and inclement weather that we get in parts of VA. The only issue that I had was syncing with my smart phone which turned out to be my not realizing what I needed to do. I would purchase another Subaru and I would recommend it to anyone needing this type of vehicle
HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE CAR

I have never owned a Subaru before. After this car I will never own a Subaru again. What a piece of crap this car is. The only good things about this car are the generous cargo space, the (so far) lack of repair bills and the resale value. That is it. Everything else BLOWS. The acceleration is abysmal. The braking is ridiculously soft and bad. The handling, well, there is no handling on this car and good luck taking it on road trips; you will spend 75% of the time fighting with the steering wheel to keep the car from wandering all over the road. Oh and don't even think about taking a corner fast with this car! The A/C is adequate, but god forbid you step on the gas, IT WILL STOP COOLING! The CVT transmission hesitates, is jerky and Subaru says that's perfectly normal! The sound system and entertainment screen is just an embarrassment. The backup camera of course is very LOW-RES. The MPG on the sticker is a BIG LIE; I have never gotten anything over 24 miles per gallon with this car. I won't even keep typing, as Subaru doesn't deserve for me to spend another second writing about this substandard vehicle. Make sure you test drive this vehicle many, many times before you buy it, and for the love of god do not even think about buying the 4 cylinder, unless you like to be blown off the interstate by trucks since your car will not be able to accelerate enough to merge. This car is for people who are not drivers. At this point I am just waiting for the car to start burning through oil, as 99.9% of the Outbacks are doing. The car is only good for hauling stuff in the snow. It gets two overall stars from me for that. That's about it.
