Only time I've bought a 3rd one.
By Jon C. on
Vehicle
2006 Subaru Outback 3.0 R L.L.Bean Edition 4dr Wagon AWD (3.0L 6cyl 5A)
Review
Compared to other SUV's I tried, this one is the only one that didn't handle like a truck (compared to Ford Explorer, Nissan Xterra, etc.) and didn't get buffeted around in the wind. This is the 3rd one I've owned and it is still the best snow car I've ever driven (I ski and regularly go into snow country). It also quite adequately tows my boat. My only gripe is that the current model's "sport automatic" drive is not as smooth as my last one (2002).
Favorite Features
Sunroof; CD changer; heated seats; outside temperature; climate control. Most important: it almost never skids in snow country - even when I want it to so that I can turn around in place on a narrow heavily snowplowed road.
Suggested Improvements
Go back to the plain vanilla automatic, but smoother transmission and add back the weather radio bands.
