Subaru Liberty Owner Car Reviews

2013 Subaru Liberty 2.5i review

The 2013 Subaru Liberty 2.5i Wagon was purchased just over one year ago, and we have loved every single moment of driving it. With the help of some of my mates, we decided the car's name would be #mysubie. We purchased the Liberty 2.5i because Subaru has a very good reputation, it was a fantastic price for the car, good fuel economy, and it has lots of space for the family of five...

2006 Subaru Liberty 3.0R-B review

I have had this car for a few years now, as a second car to run myself and kids to work/school, plus the occasional fun drive on weekends. So it had to be affordable, reasonably practical, reliable, and still have enough power and good handling for occasional winding road blasts. I have always loved the look of the Gen 4 Liberty, this being my fifth Liberty and second Gen 4...

2005 Subaru Liberty 3.0R-B review

I bought a six-cylinder Subaru because I was intrigued by the fact that such a curious concept only done in four-cylinders, the boxer engine (which had fascinated me from my first interest in car), had been re-invented alongside Porsche for an affordable everyday driver. I was looking for a first car at the time as I'd just passed my licence test, and wouldn't be sated by a cheap two-litre beater...

2005 Subaru Liberty 3.0R-B review

Purchased in the summer of 2016, my MY05 Subaru Liberty (affectionately called Mia) has served me well. It had 199,000km on the clock at pick-up and now has 243,000km – and not a single failure to be noted. The engine (EZ30) has no leaks, the transmission feels fairly tight and the ride is nice and supple...

2005 Subaru Liberty 2.5i Safety review

Ah, the Liberty. In my mind, the forgotten hero of the Subaru range. At least until 2009, when this fantastic fourth generation was retired in favour of the hideous land-yacht that is the fifth generation. Anyway, back to the car in question. I love this car. I really, really do...

2001 Subaru Liberty Heritage (AWD) Review

Early in the year, it became apparent that we needed a 3rd car within our family, as we had four drivers that would share between two cars, which became quite a hassle as we'd all need to figure out when and who could use a car, and next year we'll be having a 5th driver come into play...

2012 Subaru Liberty EXIGA Premium Review

This car was bought for utility not pleasure. At $33,000 it was a heavily discounted dealer demo. It has averaged 10L/100km. The seats are comfortable and can be configured to carry many different load types. For example 3 kids in the back plus surfboards. How split fold the second seat for two kids to sit in and put the third kid in the third row behind them...

2012 Subaru Liberty 2.5i Review

I had my Liberty for just over 3 years and averaged 7.4 lt/100 which I thought was great fuel economy. Best I have seen was 6.2 lt/100 on a trip to Kiama. While no ball of fire it certainly had decent performance and would effortlessly hold the speed limit of the 113kmh GPS measured speed I would set it to...

2016 Subaru Liberty 2.5i Review

Having this vehicle for one day as a loan car, it impressed myself to a degree where I have to share my thoughts on it. For such a small engine with a 129KW, the 2.5L 4 Cylinder gets the car moving and isn't much of a slouch despite the CVT transmission. The CVT does affect the quality of the drive being a bit jerky and delayed acceleration...

2016 Subaru Liberty 3.6r Review

The Japanese are known for their exacting standards of quality, their technological achievements, their Kaizen approach to improvement, and their slightly left of centre quirkiness. No industry epitomises these traits more than the Japanese automotive industry, and no Japanese manufacturer more so than Subaru...

2013 Subaru Liberty 2.5i Review

The Subie came into our lives a tad over 12 months ago and was quickly named by the kids - who loved it from the time we picked it up. The previous owner wisely ticked the 'luxury pack' box, so our base model has light coloured leather seats, electric adjustment of the drivers seat, a 'better' audio system and sat nav...
