99.9% sure this is going to be SuperDave’s next vehicle. We spent the afternoon at the Chicago Auto Show seeing which cars we fit in… but since the girl at the Subaru “interactive experience” knows nothing about scale, it wouldn’t appear we fit in a Subaru Outback, but we do.


  1. First of all, they’re all wheel drive. That means you can’t replace two tires at a time. If you get a flat, you have to replace all four tires. Second, they don’t have much space inside compared to most newer cars. Also, my grandfather has one that’s about five years old and it already has electrical problems. The rear door locks don’t work, as well as one of the windows.


  2. Donna McClure​ my husband is 6 foot 4 and doesn’t fit comfortably in most cars, but he’s actually got a lot of room- headroom legroom and width inside the Subaru Outback. It’s also got very high ratings for safety, plenty of space in the back for luggage.
    We did learn something new regarding the all wheel drive tire replacement recommendation. AWD vehicles need all four tires to have same size, brand, tread design, construction, and tread depth to prevent mechanical drivetrain malfunctions.


  3. Cars have gotten much bigger recently. I’m 6-5. I couldn’t fit into most compacts until recently. I can fit into pretty much anything nowadays except those really small cars like the smart or scion iQ.


  4. David was interested in looking at midsize SUV’S but found he hit his head getting in and out of most of them and the line of sight was terrible.
    He fits…just not comfortably and since we are frequent road trippers it’s important he’s comfortable for long stretches.


  5. I actually took quite a shine to the Nissan juke 🙂
    Maxima is a good car. David is coming from a 2007 Ford 500 with nearly 200,000 miles on it and I think he’s excited about getting into an SUV for a change.
