I am also a new Subaru customer.

Username: BigGeorge
Location: Ottawa
Vehicle: 2017 Outback 2.5i Base Model 6sp Manual
Colour: Carbide Grey Metallic
Purchased: Dec 2016
Mileage: Unknown - Hasn't rolled off the truck yet.

Pros: It works (or it at least should) which my current winter does not. Lots more room then I am use to and it has the 6th gear for the highway. Base model comes standard with features I was wanting (Heated seats, decent audio HU, Backup cam).

Cons: I know the fuel consumption will be worse the the civic that was driving but I get a lot more use out of it. Cost was pretty good I think but this is the first time that I will have a monthly payment on a car, it will be a change in lifestyle for me as I wont be able to fly as much as I use to for vacations. When it comes I might be able to find some other things with it.

New toSubaru

Username: deluxe
Location: Ottawa
Vehicle: 2013 Outback 2.5i Touring
Colour: Black
Purchased: January 2017
Mileage: 77114 km

Pros: Like the cargo space, AWD, general feel of the car.

Cons: Thinking my 2003 Buick LeSabre got better gas mileage. Maybe with summer tires on and without warming up the mileage will improve. Although I don't listen to the radio as much, sound isn't great and no mute button. Headlight are terrible. Use the fogs at night and they are not the best.

I don't think I saw this before... Was new to Subaru in 2013.

Username: mjohnson
Location: Halifax
Vehicle: 2013 Outback 2.5i convenience
Colour: Venetian red
Purchased: July 2013
Mileage: 64k km

Pros: AWD, handling in winter. Comfy ride on long trips. Easy oil change

Cons: effing CVT is a PITA to service. Like other manufacturers, cheaping out on some parts (battery for example).

Unless the mode button is supposed to do it,..otherwise just switches from AM to FM. Maybe I need to reprogram it or something.

On the right is the cruise control stuff,...left side has volume up and down and scanning,..and stuff for cellphones.
