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

Review

Great looking car and fun to drive, as long as it's not hot outside. Only 300 miles on car and has been in for repair already. Comfort takes a ding on this one due to the newly designed AC cycles constantly every 20-30 seconds between cold and warm making for an annoying sensation. Outside temp at 82 and inside still not all that cold. Subaru America says that's just the way it is designed and will have to live with it. I've had better AC in cars 20 years old!! Beware of this "new" design!! Gas mileage seems to be great but can be uncomfortable to drive in hot environments, so much for a great commuting vehicle.

Favorite Features

Trip computer to monitor mileage, temp. etc.

Suggested Improvements

Redesign the AC back to the way it was in the '04 models that actually worked!
