Great car - great buy
By Kenneth on


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


So far so great with the Outback. The ride is very smooth, stable and comfortable and has very good ground clearance. Actually fun to drive. Controls are well positioned and easy to use- as is the trunk\hatch. Great MPG - 1st check was a little under 27mpg (mostly highway but awesome for all-wheel drive!). Very peppy - don't bother with the bigger engine - the 2.5L does very good getting up on the highway. Great safety and reliability ratings to boot. Very happy we went with the Outback.

Best Features

Headlights are some kind of new tech that provide excellent visibility by lighting up not just the road but the entire surrounding area in front of car.

Worst Features

The back seat would be a little tight for big adults but we don't use it and wouldn't want a bigger car anyway so can't really think of any.
