Subaru Outback 2005 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Subaru Outback 2005 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Should I buy a 2003 - 2007 Outback?

    Generally, the Outback is a good solid car, well designed and built. My only concern is the age of the cars you’re looking at. While the Outback is a good car all cars deteriorate as they age, so it’s vital when buying an old car to have it thoroughly checked by a mechanic who knows his way round the brand. It’s also best to look for a car that hasn’t been used off-road.

  • Outlook using oil

    Subaru advised us that without direct knowledge of the car the usage appears to fall within their acceptable limits. But if you have doubts they recommend that you book it in to an authorized Subaru dealer for checking. It is good that you check engine oil levels regularly as despite some perception, they do use some oil over time. Subaru's Customers Relations department (1800 22 66 43) would be happy to advise you of the nearest dealer location.

  • Buy now or . . .

    CARMAKERS like to move stock as the end of the year looms. It helps boost their annual sales and moves cars that are plated in the current year. They are harder to move once the new year starts for the very reason you mention. You could wait until early 2006 and get a 2006-plated car, or try to crunch the dealer even harder now on a 2005 car. The car with the later date will be a little easier to sell later, but if you buy it for less now you won't be out of pocket.

  • Ford Falcon: Is a Subaru Forester better?

    THE BA Falcon should do the job. It is rated to tow up to 2300kg with the auto and the Ford tow pack. I wouldn't recommend the manual, as it isn't rated as high as the auto. As far as the Subaru goes, I would think it should cope with the load you want to move without any drama. The Ford is more solidly built than the Subaru, but I wouldn't advise you against the Outback.
