A 3 Year Review of the Outback XT
By 3year-review on
Vehicle2005 Subaru Outback 2.5 XT Limited AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
ReviewI have put about 42,000 miles on my black on black Outback XT that I leased brand new. This is a great wagon for hauling your junk around. I only had one trip to the dealer for any warranty issues, and that issue was a minor wiring fix. The turbocharged engine has plenty of power on tap. Amazingly, the OEM tires (Potenza) still have decent tread remaining. I average 22 MPG with 75% highway miles and a heavy foot. Drives great in the snow although it does have a tendency to fishtail. I would surely buy one again.
Best FeaturesTurbocharger, storage space, AWD, seat warmers, subwoofer, 6 CD changer, durability.
Worst FeaturesClimate control hard to dial in. Place audio controls on the steeering wheel.
