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


Came from a Volks Jetta VR6 wagon, surprised that the Outback gets better gas mileage then the Jetta, even though the Jetta was a smaller car and front wheel drive. All arround the Outback is good car. Feel very safe with Outback, in addition to its sturdiness. So far it is a reliable car, even though I have spent a total of $1500 on the brakes two different times.

Best Features

The Outback is good looking. Very happy with stereo. Highway mileage is better then what was stated. Very comfortable interior.

Worst Features

The sunroof liner creaks. Door windows need a frame. The interior upholstrey could use impovement in the fit and finish. The hooks that hold the floor mats in place broke, need to improve that design.
