A superior fast touring car
By Hans Harald on
Vehicle2006 Subaru Outback 2.5i 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewAm 70 years old now, owned some very nice and powerful cars during my life, this one is the most satisfying of them all, by far, especially after replacing the OEM Yokohamas with Michelins (see below under "suggested improvements"), which actually make the car do what I am waxing about in this review!
Best FeaturesSmooth, powerful 6 cylinder engine (no need for a fussy turbo!), solid handling; this is a safe car which will take you anywhere. Sterling reliability. Feel of heft and quality - feels strangely "un"-Japanese, more European. A true "Character-car"!
Worst FeaturesRear seating a bit tight. Transmission shifts a bit fussy (benefits from some manual control - which actually may make the drive more interesting...). Definitely benefits from installation of some true premium performance tires (i.e. Michelin Pilot Sport AS plus).
