2006 Subaru Outback 2.5i 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


I have owned many Subarus -- 1993 Impreza, 2000 Forester, 2004 Outback and now the 2006 Outback. Basically the car gets better with each iteration. There are a few things missing on my 2006 that I had on the 2004 which I miss: 1. Weatherband radio, why was this fantastic feature removed? It was great when we traveled through tornado alley to make sure there weren't any weather events that we should know about. 2. The beeping feature on the seatbelts is annoying. My dog sets off the seatbelt alarm, my bag of trash or myself driving 100 feet down my driveway before I dash out to open my gate all set it off. 3. The cupholder is still awkward and small.

Worst Features

1. Better front cupholders, more front storage, no beeping seatbelts alarms, put BACK the weatherband radio and most important get a FULL SIZE SPARE! I live remotely and cannot get to a tire store in less than 60 miles of mountainous driving so hope I never get a serious flat.
