2006 Subaru Outback 2.5i 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)

Review

This is my third new Subaru and there are noticeable improvements from model to model. The only real negative I see is a hesitation to accelerate. This is a real problem when coming onto a road past a blind curve or pulling onto a parkway with fast unforgiving traffic. Otherwise the car has amazing handling and is the best foul weather car I have ever driven in. It is a little closer to the ground than my 2000 Outback Limited offering excellent stability in the wind. I particularly liked the sport shift when I went over the 16% grade of the Sonora Pass in California this year - I really feel safe in this car under almost any condition. 19/25 mpg traffic/highway.

Best Features

Safety, handling, ergonomics - no slide rear cargo liner - beautiful exterior.

Worst Features

Solve the acceleration lag - in any mode of driving - with this much power it should be immediately accessible.
