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

Review

Just got this wagon, or maybe a truck, or whatever it is after spending 10 minutes test driving one - it's very nice. I looked at 2006 Accord V6 (cheap interior, back seat folds down in 1 piece), Acura TL (back seat doesn't fold down, blind spots, snobby dealerships), Saab 95 (poor quality apparently) - this one beats those by a nice margin. Beautiful and very practical interior for a 6'3" skier with family, tight ride, decent acceleration (get turbo if you like to feel the engine), good MPG for AWD, tons of storage, not a single blind spot, pleasant buying experience, what else do you need?

Best Features

Love that enormous sunroof (my 1 year old also finds it very interesting), interior on par with a more expensive car, roof rack, tons of storage, sport transmission mode.

Worst Features

Tires are apparently crap, judging by reviews on the Tire Rack (although AWD may even that out) - but then again, user manual mentions using winter tires for the white stuff. Would be nice to have stability control standard, although probably not a big deal with AWD and ABS.
