A good time

Vehicle2005 Subaru Outback 2.5i AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewJust sold my 2.5 after 84,000 miles for $9000 trade-in.
It was dependable.
Never broke down. It was perfect for hiking, camping and snowboarding trips.
It got me to work when most of Seattle shut down after snow. Went through 8 headlight bulbs (3 under warranty) and 2 rear wheel bearings (warranty).
OEM tires not great so upgraded when originals worn and bought snow tires for the winter months.
Total cost (depreciation and wear & tear) over 6 years was 26.2 cents/mile, which I think is good.
I averaged about 23mpg in mixed driving.
Now have 2011, which provides more interior space for my growing family.
