Great Used Car
By Dave from TX on
Vehicle2005 Subaru Outback 2.5i AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 4A)
ReviewBought used, second owner. It now has 71,000 miles and going strong. Replaced the passenger side CV boot, it sits above the catalytic converter so wears out sooner because of the heat. Cost $280 at dealership to fix but warranty covered so only $100. That was at 70,000 miles. Brakes still going strong, replaced Bridgestone with General; traction galore. H7 headlight bulbs do burn out somewhat quickly, my last set lasted 16 months. Other than the CV boot and headlight bulbs no other issues. I'm 6'4", 215lbs and it's a comfortable car albeit a little tight for my size. My girlfriend drove it and was shocked when I told her it was a 4 cylinder, she thought it was a V6 (she drives a V6 VW).
Best FeaturesSolid build, reliable and steady. Texas heat, cold, rain... it does well.
Worst FeaturesGas mileage isn't stellar but is about par. Turbo diesel is promised this year but haven't seen it. New 2010 looks not as good as 2005-2009 model. Change headlights to use something more reliable besides H7 bulbs.
