Not a Car for those with Infants
By Tamara on

Vehicle

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

Review

When I purchased this vehicle, I did not have a child. With the exception of the headlight and interior lighting systems (mentioned in reviews by others), I was reasonably happy with the car until I had a child. This car does not allow for the infant car seat to be safely placed in the center of the backseat, which is the safest place for the child to ride. Moreover, the front passenger seat had to be pushed so far forward to accommodate the child carrier behind it, that that seat was rendered virtually useless. Although I had hoped to keep my OB for some time, the inconvenience associated with trying to transport an infant in this car will likely cause me to trade it soon.

Favorite Features

AWD - Does well in snowy conditions. Seat warmers help as well, and I get much better gas mileage than what was stated when I purchased the car.

Suggested Improvements

Headlight system and interior lighting systems need to be totally redesigned. Additionally, car should not be sold to those with infants--- not enough room for baby carrier.
