Vehicle2006 Subaru Outback 2.5 XT 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 5A)
ReviewThe car is solid as a vault and has been absolutely reliable. Plenty of power from the turbo 4, but the transmission is a little squishy on shifts. Great traction from the AWD, but the suspension is a little too soft for cornering. comfortable and quite ride. Car provides a feeling of confidence, and AWD is very effective since the 5 speed AT powers all wheels all the time (unlike the 4AT which is FWD biased). Mileage fairly poor ~20 overall, and never higher than 24 on highway. CD/radio a disappointment - rather mediocre custom built radio that can't be changed out or adapted for iPod.
Best FeaturesAWD and the turbo make the car useful and fun to drive. Auto dimming mirror, heated seats, power seats both sides, big sunroof, are great.
Worst FeaturesUse standard CD/radio or provide iPod/XM capability.
