My 4th Subaru!
By Trina Stephenson on


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


A few things not quite as good as our 2004 Subaru Outback. Built in dust deflector does not work as well as the add-on available on previous models, sport shift is great, the seat belt sound is annoying; if you want to drive 50 feet in your driveway it will make noise, the Weather Band radio on the 2004 was wonderful, why was it excluded on the 2006? My biggest beef with the new Subarus is the lack of a full size spare like my old Forester (2000) had. When you live in the remote areas of the US, you don't want a donut tire!

Best Features

I have never been stranded in any of my 4 Subarus! They are reliable!

Worst Features

Bring back a real dust deflector, no donut tires, bring back the Weather Band radio, and allow the driver to get rid of the seat belt chime. My dog, a heavy bag of books etc. all need a seatbelt.
