We purchased our 2004 Subaru Impreza
Outback Sport Wagon after comparing
many other cars using the following
criteria in order:Price,
and practicality.We found this car to
beat all contenders easily and it
handles superbly. Firm enough to take a
hard turn with confidence and soft
enough to soak up the small stuff. The
non-turbo has 168 hp and is plenty for
the weight of the car and not enough to
get me into turbotrouble+low insurance!
It gets great mileage for an AWD and
runs smooth as silk. Built 100% in
Japan. Runs like its on tracks and
gives me TOTAL confidence after having
to make 2 life saving evasive manuvers.
All Wheel Drive.Performance-Great
Suspension and powerful engine that
gives predictable linear acceleration
and great low end torque as opposed to
turbo's that tend to be at a loss on
the bottom end. Great mileage,
Attractive, safe and roomy.
Lumbar support for the drivers seat.
Sunroof option. Full size spare please!
Mats that don't crumple into the
floorboard and pedals.
