I bought this car second hand 11/11/08 with 40,318 miles on it. I bought it to tow behind a Class A on a trip to Alaska. I had a Blue Ox baseplate installed and wired up for taillights/brakes and a Brake Buddy connection. It worked beautifully.


I'm selling it because my wife doesn't drive anymore and we don't need 2 cars anymore.


Here are some of the things that make this car a great toad!


  • Low mileage (only 49,871 miles)
  • Blue Ox baseplate, wiring for tail/brake lights and cable for Brake Buddy already installed.
  • Light weight tow - only 3320 pounds
  • Car is in very good condition and has never been in a wreck.
  • All-Wheel-Drive with great ground clearance - 8.4 inches. Take it anywhere.
  • Almost new four Michelin Primacy MXM4 High Performance 225/55R17 97V tires installed (installed at 48,701, presently 49,838, so only 1,137miles).
  • Regular gasoline (I get 20-22 MPG Town, ~25 MPG highway)
  • Options/Features:
    • Blue Ox baseplate
    • Full size spare (BF Goodrich g-Force Sport 225/55R17, never been used) and MasterFlow O-Max 12V air compressor (original donut spare available, too)
    • Keyless remote entry
    • Auto-dimming mirror/compass with 3 Homelink garage door opener buttons
    • Retractable privacy shield to cover cargo area
    • After-market Alpine iDA-X001 Digital Media Receiver (MP3 and USB playback).
    • Heated front seats
    • Subaru cargo mat


Negative Information:

  • Some road rash on front of car - caused by gravel tossed up during towing
  • Small piece of plastic spoiler on right-rear spoiler broken off (small rock from towing lodged into crack between body and hatch caused damage when hatch was opened after towing).
  • Small cigarette burn on left-rear passenger seat (present when I purchased car. There has been no smoking in the car since I have owned it).
  • The windshield has a repaired, small rock-ding about two tenths of an inch in diameter.


The 2006 Outback is a great car and there are very few around with a manual transmission, which is required for towing 4-flat. There are even fewer '06 Outbacks available with mileage this low. Just put in your Brake Buddy (or equiv), connect your tow bar and cables and you're ready to tow.


Maintenance records are available. To the best of my knowledge, everything is functional on the car.


Thanks for your interest.

We live in the Seattle area but are very interested we just bought a new-to-us Southwind 32' class A with plans to go full time in Jun 2017. We need a tow vehicle and would like a 4WD or AWD we can use on the coast. We used to have a Subaru and like them. Can you please email your contact info so we can call? Uoduck1978@aol.com. If you are near the LA area, we could fly down and drive It home. Thanks!

Hi, DABlagg.


I responded to the email you provided on 10/12/16. I haven't heard back and was concerned that perhaps the email address (Uoduck1978@aol.com) might be in error. So, I'm answering here so you will know that I got your message.
