Buy an '04, not newer body style
By Happy on
2004 Subaru Outback H6-3.0 AWD 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
If you're shopping for a used Subaru, buy an '04. Very dependable car, no trouble. Mine has more than 100K miles and getting 27 mpg. According to a local Subaru mechanic, '04 is the best year for Subarus. Run from the '05s. See my review for our '05 Outback XT under title "Money Pit". It's hard to believe the cars are from the same manufacturer. The '04 has been a perfect car and the '05 was a horribly expensive nightmare. We're keeping the '04 and plan to put another 100K miles on it.
All wheel drive handling, seat heater, windshield heater, dependable, 27 mpg. I really enjoy driving it.
Not enough room for right foot on accelerator; my foot gets hot because it has to press against engine wall. Back seat should lay down for pass- through from trunk to carry big objects.
