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


Very fun to drive. Now put on 3,500 miles. Awesome road handling. Nice heavy duty suspension - handles off road bumps incredibly. Decent fuel mileage avg. 26mpg. Front bumper is too low - bottoms out if not careful. Exterior paint chips too easily - front plastic bumper absorbs road debris. Very jerky manual transmission when maintaining slow speed. 1st gear take off power is very weak, yet in all gears when passing 3500rpms acceleration picks up! Upgraded sound system is ok, not impressive; the stereo reception is not the best. Low fuel warning light is inconsistent. Some wind noise, overall love the vehicle am content. still worth the purchase - good price. AWD system is great!

Best Features

Body style/interior, on/off road handling!, 2-3-4 gear acceleration. AWD system.

Worst Features

Improve upgraded sound system, add an exterior antenna for better reception, improve 1 gear starting out acceleration, smooth out jerky transmission, beef up the paint job durability, get rid of wind noise, Yet a very nice car still.
