    2005 Subaru Outback - 2.5i Limited (M5) Wagon

    Pros: MPG

    Cons: The standard Alarm system could be better

    Advice: Dont pay more then invoice.

    I have had my 2005 Subaru 2.5i Limited Wagon just over 1 week. It is a great riding car. This is my 3rd Subaru. I miss the traditional Subaru styling like the 2001/2002 models. But the car is still great. I average around 28 mpg. Its a great car everyone likes it. Buy a Subaru and you will never want any other car. The arm-rest needs some rethinking by Subaru. Its short and to low. The keys and remote are big and bulky. I miss the weather band radio.

    2004 Subaru Outback - Base (M5) Wagon

    Pros: AWD/ sportshift

    Cons: Nothing

    Advice: Buy it!!! they are the best around!

    When driving this vehicle,I found it to be the best in its class. The AWD is just awesome, with the winters like they are in Pennsylvania, I've passed amany better vehicles stuck in the snow. But never another Subaru!

    2004 Subaru Outback - H6-3.0 VDC (A4) Wagon

    Pros: Stability control

    Cons: Uses premium gas, 4 speed automatic vs 5 speed auto or CVT

    Advice: new model out next Summer

    Took delivery 29 Dec 03. I wanted an AWD car with stability control. I have about 750 miles on it now. We have had no snow since I got it, but should soon. I wanted to keep the price under $30,ooo if possible. Most cars/suvs with the stability control would be more $$. The Passat 4 motion might be a contender.

    2003 Subaru Outback - Limited (M5) Wagon

    Pros: AWD

    Cons: Passenger seat is not automatic, unlike driver seat.

    Advice: Go for what you want or need, then look at the price.

    The AWD system grips the road and is a noticeabe difference. Subaru Outback line has all the luxury (L.L. Bean and VDC models) of a BMW, the off road capabilities of a SUV, and the comfort and feel of a sedan. With a nice price.
