Love my Outback

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


I love my LL Bean 2005 Outback wagon, but I'm still shocked by the gas mileage I'm getting. Highway driving is not problem, but around town I sometimes only get 16 mpg! I switched to mid-range fuel, but that doesn't help much with the price of gas these days. I would love to get another Outback, but Subaru hasn't done anything to improve mileage in the new V6's except changing to regular gas. I'm considering a Toyota hybrid for my next car.

Best Features

versatility, rides like a sport sedan but is higher and easier to get in and out of, I love the wagon styling too

Worst Features

increase the gas mileage; consider hybrid technology

Subaru doesn't make a V6. Its an H6, or "flat 6".
