2006 Subaru Outback 2.5 XT Ltd 4dr Wagon AWD w/Ivory Int (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 5M)

Review

The Subaru Outback XT Limited is a sports car masquerading as a family wagon. With the 250 hp turbocharged, intercooled 2.5 liter Boxer engine and 5 speed manual transmission, it is a car for people like me who like to drive. In spite of its high road clearance (about 8.5 inches) it corners very well, and few drivers will ever take this car to its limits of adhesion. Apart from the driveability, this model has a load of creature comforts, including heated seats and a nice stereo system.

Favorite Features

It's fast (0-60 in around 6 seconds) and corners well. State of the art AWD system. Comfortable seats, nice sound system, very attractive interior appointments. Controls and gauges are intuitively laid out.

Suggested Improvements

6-speed manual transmission; better stock tires -- the Bridgestones are adequate, but not outstanding. Gas mileage is so-so, particularly since no one who buys this car will be able to drive sedately. Could use an extra storage bin up front.
