2006 Subaru Outback 2.5i 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)

Review

This is our second Subaru. The first was a 1999 Forester. We bought this one because it had better ground clearance than the Forester, was more roomy and looked better. Ours is a stick shift which we like because of the better control and because we tow it behind our RV on trips. We average about 21 mpg in mixed driving and around 29 mpg on the highway. Love the car. No problems aside from an alignment problem when new which was taken car of by the dealer. Wife is an EMT and HAS to be able to get through...this does--and does it very smoothly! We'll get another in a couple of years as well.

Favorite Features

Ability to tow it in neutral with no other requirements, excellent road feel and handling, heated seats, excellent visibility, headlights come on automatically, interior lighting, comfortable seats, fold flat rear seats, roof carrying capacity, great heater and air, security of safety features.

Suggested Improvements

The stick shift is a little less smooth than some we've had. Seat belts don't always retract well, requiring manual help at times and Subaru windshield wipers don't clear windshield as well as replacements (Rain-ex).
