2006 Subaru Impreza Outback Sport Special Edition 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Overall, I am happy with the car. Pros: It's a good reliable safe car, has enough space in the back for anything I need to haul around, it's a blast to drive, AWD is great for New England, the build quality and reliability are good. I gave reliability a tentative 8, that may wind up a 10 but I won't know for some years. Cons: The seats are a bit awkward, it's smaller inside than my last car, no sunroof, gear ratios are a little low for my taste.

Best Features

AWD, 5 door (hatch back), 6 disc changer and subwoofer in SE package, and H4 engine that will last a long time.

Worst Features

Telescoping steering wheel, more standard type bucket seats, a sunroof option in the 2.5i class, DOHC, wider gear ratio transmission ... tach should read ~3K in 3rd gear @ 50mph. not over 4K like it does, and make the whole car a bit longer and wider for more interior room.
