Subaru's a Best Bet
By Eric on


2006 Subaru Outback 2.5 XT Ltd 4dr Wagon AWD w/Ivory Int (2.5L 4cyl Turbo 5A)


I owned a first generation '96 Outback and had a bunch of problems. This is not that car. This car rides much better and is far more upscale. I replaced our '98 Volvo and could not be happier. This provides the versatility and safety I had with a Volvo at a much better price and much sportier package. It is a rocket off the line (be sure to go with the turbo if you want performance). It also rides like a regular car but with enough clearance that we can comfortably go into the mountains and tackle 4-6" of new powder on the back roads. If you need a wagon, but don't want to give up performance, go with this vehicle.

Best Features

Leather seating is great. Massive sunroof is a kick for the kids. 6 CD changer is a nice feature. Storage and capacity are above average. Climate control is very good. 2.5 turbo is exceptional. Ride is very comfortable.

Worst Features

Cupholders in the back seat are poor location. I anticipate my two kids will likely break them within 1-2 years. Should have rear seat ventilation system.
