Subaru Outback 2.5i Premium Testimonial

Hi join, I'd like to take the time to thank you on you recommendation on the Subaru Outback. My wife & I picked up ours yesterday & I am very pleased. We did use your brokerage service >> and we couldn't be happier with the service.

In the end we got a 2017 Subaru Outback 2.5 premium. We took advantage of Subaru's extended warranty offer on all call that ended on the weekend. I agree that the service intervals are a pain & more expensive than competitors but I have found a new love for the Subaru brand. 

Could you help please ease my mind with a bit of buyer remorse. On Saturday the dealer offer me to test drive the 3.6R but I refused. Now I wonder if I should of bought the 3.6. Do you think I made a wise choice on the 2.5? Money wasn't really a factor in this case.

As well as it goes, the handling is amazing for a car this size and I am now wondering would the 3.6 have been an even better choice.

What are you thoughts?



Great news, and congratulations. And relax on the 'remorse' front: If I was going to buy a Subaru Outback it would be a 2.5i Premium. So you ultimately made the same decision I would make (and which I advise people to make, routinely).

Ultimately the Outback 2.5i Premium is the same as the 3.6R in terms of overall specification and equipment. The only difference is the more powerful engine and beefier driveline - which comes at a considerable additional cost.

In my view, 2.5i Premium is the pick of the range. Enjoy it, and thanks for using us.
