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


This is my 6th Subaru dating back to 1981 and this is the best to date. 4 cylinder is fine for my needs. Have 23,000 miles on vehicle and have averaged 24.8 since purchase. Have gotten as high as 30 on a trip. Goes anywhere and handles exceptionally well (except for the OEM tires). Had them replaced at 22k. A great all around vehicle for the money. High ground clearance makes it easy to enter and exit vehicle. Standard model comes with a ton of options that are extra on other cars.

Best Features

Heated seats and mirrors. Front and rear defrost/de-icer. AWD traction and feel of safety in any weather condition.

Worst Features

Telescoping steering wheel. A little softer seats. Better OEM tires. Weather band radio.
