2005 Subaru Impreza Outback Sport AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


The 2005 Outback Sport Wagon (5-speed manual) is my first Subaru. What made me hesitant about the 2004 model was the placement of the front cup holders. The 2005 Outback Sport has the front cup holders the center console between the seats. Also, there are rear cup holders. The car is very responsive and has great power given the engine size. I am getting about 24 mpg. The rating for city is 23 mpg which is 1-2 miles better than the 2004. My 6-foot friend sat in the back seat and said the leg room was good. Also, there is lots of storage compartments.

Best Features

Steering, power, most controls for car is attached to steering wheel column, smooth ride, and the look :)

Worst Features

The only major drawback is the stereo. First the illumination is poor and the sound quality is ok. The controls could have been better placed and have a softer touch (you need to place your finger just right to get the response). Also, at high speeds, I can hear some wind noise.
