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


I decided to trade in my gas guzzling truck for a smaller car with better gas milage. This was a great choice. The AWD handling is new to me and if I don't be careful it WILL get me in trouble. Base model engine has little pick up but runs great once rolling, but I expected this and accept it. It has climbed some fairly mean off road trails and only had a slight overheat, with no problems later. I love my "new" 'Ru!

Best Features

AWD! Gauge cluster with temp and mileage, heated seats, flat fold down rear seats, rear 12 volt, easy owner oil changes, overall look.

Worst Features

Headlamps that don't burn out all the time.
