Best Subie Ever
By Old Boy from Boston on


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


My fourth Subie, also had Audi A4 and
Pathfinder. This is probably the best
car on America's roads. Fast, high,
safe, great handling, much improved
interior and exterior. Cruises down the
highway, a delight on twisty hills,
superb moderate off-road. Monotone is
very sharp looking, a stealth Subie
with much of the over badgeing gone.
Unconfusing controls. Girlfriend loves
the dual climate controls. Awesome
sunroof. New 5speed auto transmission
is much smoother. The six flies. Very
safe feeling. Best car out there.

Best Features

Powerful engine. Much improved interior. Love the audio controls on wheel. Excellent clearence. Superb new 5speed auto. Handles like an Audi on steroids. Great safety features.

Worst Features

Better tires. More monotone colors. More functional armrest. Nothing is perfect, but this comes close. Wouldn't it be truely amazing if Subaru offered a slick hybrid.
