2004 Subaru Impreza Outback Sport AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)

Review

So far so good, and with Michigan winter coming, we'll really know for sure. This car replaces our Jeep Wrangler - seems light-years different, I know - but not really! The Outback Sport has WAY MORE luggage and passenger space, is vastly more comfortable on long trips, and uses a LOT LESS fuel. But we never took the Jeep on anything worse than reasonably smooth dirt roads (lots of camping), and the Subaru tromps over those even more comfortably. But I wish it were just a little roomier in the very back. The "styled" hatch really cuts into cargo space.

Favorite Features

AWD!!! Wonderful engine, smooth shifting, respectable gas mileage, snappy steering feel, comfortable (sporty) seats, lots of storage cubbys and power outlets. And AWD!!!

Suggested Improvements

CUPHOLDERS! This is America man! The clever-but-fragile one in the dash is silly, and the one in the center console will hold a 12oz can or a small coffee. Stupid! A cupholder in the back, too please! The more luxurious (and expensive) Forester has it right.
