Vehicle

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

Review

This is my first Subaru after a string of Hondas and I am generally pleased after 2 1/2 years and 38,000 mi. of ownership. It's a lot of fun to drive and, other than the problems with the headlights and windshield, has been quite reliable.

Best Features

Turbo engine (this is a very quick vehicle!), comfortable and well appointed interior, great seat heaters, seamless and confidence inspiring AWD system

Worst Features

Standard Bridgestone RE92A tires performed poorly in wet and snow and they wore out quickly, the windshield seems "soft" and chips easily, headlights keep burning out, could use a bigger fuel tank as highway cruising range is limited, premium fuel requirement is getting expensive!
