2005 Subaru Outback 2.5i AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 4A)
Review
Just sold my 2.5 after 84,000 miles for $9000 trade-in. It was dependable. Never broke down. It was perfect for hiking, camping and snowboarding trips. It got me to work when most of Seattle shut down after snow. Went through 8 headlight bulbs (3 under warranty) and 2 rear wheel bearings (warranty). OEM tires not great so upgraded when originals worn and bought snow tires for the winter months. Total cost (depreciation and wear & tear) over 6 years was 26.2 cents/mile, which I think is good. I averaged about 23mpg in mixed driving. Now have 2011, which provides more interior space for my growing family.
Favorite Features
Heated seats Heated windshield & mirrors Traction Headroom
Suggested Improvements
Better headlight bulbs Better transmission Roof bars were so far back that top of tailgate when open hit roof box
