A superior fast touring car
By Hans Harald on

Vehicle

2006 Subaru Outback 3.0 R 4dr Wagon AWD (3.0L 6cyl 5A)

Review

Am 70 years old now, owned some very nice and powerful cars during my life, this one is the most satisfying of them all, by far, especially after replacing the OEM Yokohamas with Michelins (see below under "suggested improvements"), which actually make the car do what I am waxing about in this review!

Best Features

Smooth, powerful 6 cylinder engine (no need for a fussy turbo!), solid handling; this is a safe car which will take you anywhere. Sterling reliability. Feel of heft and quality - feels strangely "un"-Japanese, more European. A true "Character-car"!

Worst Features

Rear seating a bit tight. Transmission shifts a bit fussy (benefits from some manual control - which actually may make the drive more interesting...). Definitely benefits from installation of some true premium performance tires (i.e. Michelin Pilot Sport AS plus).
