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


Bought based on my mechanic recommending only Toyota, Honda, or Subaru. Had several friends with Outbacks. I considered the RAV4, CR-V, Accord, Legacy sedan. Would have gone with the Legacy, but no fold-down seats limits its utility. Gas mileage is ok - but expected with AWD.

Best Features

Styling, utility, price. Great value.

Worst Features

Air conditioning could be beefier. A sixth gear would be nice. Over-the- shoulder sight lines on the driver side are tight. A better engine without needing premium gas. More useful storage bins up front. Steering wheel radio controls. Telescoping steering wheel. Nothing major.
