#6 of 8 2007 - 2008 outback uphostery??
Jun 08, 2007 (8:32 am)
We are looking at getting 2007 or 2008 Outback 2.5i. Has anyone had experience with the 2007 cloth upholstery in terms of confort and wear. The 2008 looks a little better, but it doesn't look as sturdy. Thanks

I have an 07 Outback with cloth. It has only 8500 miles right now, but cloth shows no wear. The seats are firm, but extremely comfortable even on long drives (6+ hours, I usually take one 5 minute break part-way through).
The bolsters do seem to be sensitive to mechanical cleaning (vacuum cleaner)and "fuzz" a little when cleaned this way.

I can't comment on the newest models, but we have a 2001 Forester S (163K miles) with a very soft, velour-like cloth upholstery and a 2003 Outback (80K miles) with cloth. Except for a small grease stain on one of the OB seats, the upholstery itself has held up incredibly well, as has the seat padding. The driver's seats on both don't give any indication that they have nearly a quarter million miles between them!
