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


This is my third Subaru. The first (1985) lasted 10 years (in Ohio salt country); the second, 11 years (Ohio - > California); the third is just 1.5 years old and doing very well. Almost no post purchase fix ups. Very reliable. Decent fuel mileage (26-27), Really fine road handling (I used to have sports cars), great "mudder" (I live in the mountains and ski a fair amount). Good night road view. Only irritating problem is that, compared with my old Legacy, it is larger on the outside and smaller on the inside; strange engineering. So far, at least, it looks like another 10 or 12 year investment.

Best Features

Road handling and fairly tight turning radius. Good outside view and mirror placement for this 5 foot 6 inch person.

Worst Features

More space inside and more small nooks to store things.
