Good, but could be better
By Jerry Levy on

Vehicle

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

Review

Excellent driving experience, a good combination of handling and luxury ride. Fun on two lane mountain highways, dirt roads, and freeways. Dealer very helpful when I needed unscheduled maintenance--gave me a new, free car for two weeks.

Favorite Features

Real nice freeway cruiser as well as back road handling. Dash is very easy to read and modern looking. Exterior styling is both rugged and luxurious. Lots of storage pockets. Great travel car for two.

Suggested Improvements

Very poor back seat room, much worse than my 99 Outback. No roof runners under luggage rack to protect paint. Cruise control on downhill is rough. Keyless entry is too sensitive, sometimes going off when I put the key chain away. Rear stereo speakers should be on back tailgate pillars.
