It is no secret that Subaru's have a spirit that simply doesn't quit and many drivers wear the 200,000-mile mark like a badge of honor. No other vehicle on the road delivers the same long-lasting quality and performance like the Subaru Outback does. The unique design of the Outback's engine delivers an amazingly smooth and stable ride. The horizontal engine lays flat under the hood taking up less space and providing a low center of gravity. While the pistons move in a side to side motion rather than up and down. The side to side punches cancel out each other's vibrations and also put less stress on the engine for a more powerful performance.
