"Bought brand new in '04 ('05 GT Limited). The only issue I had was that the headlamps would burn out every 4-6 months. Went through 8 before Subaru changed suppliers. After 5-1/2 years, a significant number of autocross races and 96,000 miles, have just replaced the clutch, belts, and a few other items - all to be expected. There are no other vehicles that offer the versatility, stability, comfort and performance in this price range. Love. It's what makes a Subaru a Subaru."
"This is an amazing car - sleek, stylish, comfortable, and fast - it literally has it all! I would absolutely suggest you test drive one; I just know you’ll fall in love with it! Oh - and I haven't had my gas petal stick, or any other recalls that some of you may have had run ins with...Subaru is really a great car company, in my opinion."
"This is my third Subaru and this is such an awesome station wagon!! Yes station wagon!!
My XT Outback is a manual and my Pzev Outback is also a manual. Both great vehicles but living in California the manual gets old especially in traffic. I did not give a 5 star for quality because it does have slight rattling noises even when they were brand spanking new. 4.5 would be appropriate.The leather interior are very nice but a little to hard. Some of the materials feel a little cheap. Subaru please put in more quality trimmings in the interior. Other than that these vehicles are dependable, tough and ready to tackle high line vehicles such as BMW, Saab, Volvo's and Mercedes. I've driven these through snow and rain and theysymmetrical all wheel drive is a life saver. The power plant on the 2.5 Turbo is ridiculously powerful and gets you moving. In California you need the 0-60 power to get on these wacky highways. Great vehicles and very inexpensive to maintain these vehicles compared to other high performance vehicles."
