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


Just picked up my 05 Outback XT and its
just great. Handles like a dream with
plenty of power from the 250 hp turbo.
The re-designed interior is really
attractive and the seats are very
comfortable. The design of the
instrument cluster puts everthing
within easy reach. However, I did have
one complaint. The XT is listed to
include a 4 way power assisted
passenger seat. Its in the brochure,
and on the Edmunds web site, but its
not on the car. If you like this
feature you will need to move up to the
XT limited model. I was disapointed
when it arrived without this feature
that I expected but otherwise I love
the car and highly recomment it.

Best Features

Power and handling. Great 6 disc CD and sound system. Overall exterior styling is terrific. The 17" tires really hold the road.

Worst Features

Include a power assisted passenger seat in a car that cost over $30k. Give me a break.
