2005 Subaru Outback 2.5 XT Limited AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


I had a 2004 WRX which was too small for family of 5 with 4 dogs. Needed more space. Got great price at end of year for '05 with rebates and upgraded to Outback XT. I love the extra room and features of this car. It is built much better than the WRX.

Best Features

I love turning on the car and watching the gauges light up. Great pick up, wonderful interior finish and most of all fun to drive!

Worst Features

iPod jack, better fuel economy, more hp. Give us a 300 hp Outback. I went from 227 to 250 and I still want more.
