fun drive for low $$$
By cfe on
Vehicle2004 Subaru Impreza Outback Sport AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewTraded Lexus RX300 for WRX & feel 20 yrs younger. Very fun w ample storage for activities. 9500 mi. Took time to learn power characteristics (weak low end). Rough throttle tip-in w somewhat lumpy power band. Superb traction & AWD system. Very tossable w some understeer (sedans have bigger rear sway bar than wagons). Likes being driven aggressively. Easily squirts though traffic. Stable & relatively quiet hiway cruiser (w16s, 17s noisier, rougher ride based on test drive). Some rattles but curable. Solid chassis. Stereo upgrade barely acceptable. Better mileage than expected. Exceptional paint. Would buy again. Great dealer experience.
Best FeaturesFun, power, comfort, ride, versatility, steering wheel, driver position. Visiblity. Traction!
Worst FeaturesMore braking power. More refined power delivery (aftermarket remedies abound). Outside temp gauge.
