This is my first Subaru and it won't be my last! We shopped around for months for a solid used car and finally decided on the 06 Outback Limited after driving the new Jetta, Rabbit, Civic, Fit, CRV, v50, Forester, Sonata, and old 04 Outback. The 06 Outback Limited outshines them all! This car has everything you would ever want in a car - AWD, HUGE moonroof, heated seats, leather, turning radius, 28 mpg, smooth ride, and space to haul. And at $14k, it's a steal!
As mentioned, AWD, HUGE moonroof, heated seats, leather, turning radius, 28 mpg, smooth ride, and space to haul! I still can't believe this car averages 28 mpg (with mixed driving)!
Check engine light comes on if you fail to tighten the gas cap! Trim quality is a bit shoddy. We had to replace the interior cargo cover, center console, rear window trim, and a chrome piece on the air vent (ebay!). This could be from the previous owners negligence, but things to watch for.
