The most boring car in known universe
By andysomogyi on


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


I detest this car. Slow, gutless, handles like a barge and the gas milage is pitiful. Only reason I bought this pile of junk is that friend of mine wanted to get rid of it, and it was cheap.

It has one of the worst transmissions I've ever driven, now I hate automatics, but this one is particularly bad. The gear ratios is bizarre, shifts are slow and sloppy, and 4'th is way too low.

This is one of the worst handling cars I've ever driven, body roll is about as bad as a mid 70's Buick. Engine is truly gutless, and whats worse is given how pathetically slow this car is, the gas milage is even worse. I avg 15 city, and even with the most careful driving, best I can get is about 25 highway

Best Features

good in snow

Worst Features

Better milage, more power, better handling, better gearbox, less ugly, better seats, less cheap interior.
