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


The car is almost as good as I expected. I like everything except the cruise control. Mine won't work and I can't get Subaru to fix it. I've been to the dealership twice and they say to wait until November when they "might" have a solution. I've tried to contact the regional customer service but so far, no one has bothered to call me back. It's been three weeks since the problem was first reported.

Best Features

Gas economy, outside mirror defrosters, ease of handling, heated seats.

Worst Features

A better prepared, more responsive service team would be nice. It took two trips to the dealership to fix the glove box and remote. If they can't fix the cruise control on a car with less than 2,000 miles on it, I'm a bit worried about repairs down the road.
