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


Having my Subaru for over a year and through many conditions of snow sleet and ice, it has been nothing short of a great car and I would recommend it to anyone. It has quick response and is very sure footed even in the worse conditions. The only problem I had with the exterior design was the headlights that seem to collect salt and dirt very fast and reduce the light. I actually had to stop and scrape them off while driving. Interior is great. The heated cloth seats are standard and a great extra touch. Having been just quoted $750 for the 33,000 mile routine maintains from the dealership, I do recommend finding an alternative to the dealership once your warranty is up.

Best Features

The AWD and the balance of the car. It is a pleasure to drive in snow.

Worst Features

Wipers on the headlights. and a shield over the fog lights. Better right hand arm rest for driver side. No place to put my arm. The engine running time information - should have a manual reset, not do it automatically when the car is turned off. This would keep track of length of long trips.
