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

Review

Traded '99 Volvo XC. Too many problems/way too expensive to repair. Waited on the '05 Subarus. Worth the wait. Great design and ergonomics, dramatically upgraded safety. Bought VDC for complete safety package. Smooth, quiet, fast. IMO, best value by far in this class, with the upgrades (AWD - Volvo, Audi, Passat). Looking forward to 150,000-200,000 miles (at least!) of safe, fun and quiet driving in all kinds of New England weather.

Favorite Features

Stability control (VDC). Sportshift. Steering wheel audio controls. Side curtains. Handling. Quiet ride. Clean lines/very sleek look. (Silver).

Suggested Improvements

Satellite radio option. Tape player for books-on tape crowd. Include side cargo nets as standard feature, especially on top of line models. Memory seats a must on cars at this price. Slightly wider seat bottoms.
