2005 Subaru Impreza Outback Sport AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


The 2005 Outback Sport Wagon (5-speed
manual) is my first Subaru. What made
me hesitant about the 2004 model was
the placement of the front cup
holders. The 2005 Outback Sport has
the front cup holders the center
console between the seats. Also, there
are rear cup holders.

The car is very responsive and has
great power given the engine size. I
am getting about 24 mpg. The rating
for city is 23 mpg which is 1-2 miles
better than the 2004.

My 6-foot friend sat in the back seat
and said the leg room was good. Also,
there is lots of storage compartments.

Best Features

Steering, power, most controls for car is attached to steering wheel column, smooth ride, and the look :)

Worst Features

The only major drawback is the stereo. First the illumination is poor and the sound quality is ok. The controls could have been better placed and have a softer touch (you need to place your finger just right to get the response). Also, at high speeds, I can hear some wind noise.
