2009 Subaru Outback 2.5XT Limited 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 5M)

Review

Fills the duties of daily transportation perfectly, fast enough not to get boring and utilitarian enough that I don't feel guilty for enjoying it so much.
The only thing I HATE about this car is the danged speakers rattling the door panels.
REALLY??
Seriously guys, it's a $30,000 car and you couldn't spend the time in development to make sure the map pockets don't vibrate apart when someone's listening to music?
Hell, even NPR throws this car for a loop...if Lakshmi Sing messes your sound system up, you have a problem.
So I will spend this weekend stuffing my map pockets full of old towels.
Oh, 45,000 miles and no problems.
Original tires/brakes.
Yeah, much love for Subaru.

Best Features

Availability of a manual transmission, sunroof, heated seats, love the hood scoop, AWD, high ground clearance, great mileage compared to SUV/minivan.

Worst Features

Speaker/door panel interaction, better materials on dash (scratches easily), could be quieter, automatic climate control system is a pain to control manually, back seats are a little cramped.
