Great Car...Worth waiting for '05s
By rsorganize on


2005 Subaru Outback 3.0 R VDC Limited AWD 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Traded '99 Volvo XC. Too many
problems/way too expensive to repair.
Waited on the '05 Subarus. Worth the
wait. Great design and ergonomics,
dramatically upgraded safety. Bought
VDC for complete safety package.
Smooth, quiet, fast. IMO, best value
by far in this class, with the
upgrades (AWD - Volvo, Audi, Passat).
Looking forward to 150,000-200,000
miles (at least!) of safe, fun and
quiet driving in all kinds of New
England weather.

Best Features

Stability control (VDC). Sportshift. Steering wheel audio controls. Side curtains. Handling. Quiet ride. Clean lines/very sleek look. (Silver).

Worst Features

Satellite radio option. Tape player for books-on tape crowd. Include side cargo nets as standard feature, especially on top of line models. Memory seats a must on cars at this price. Slightly wider seat bottoms.
