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


We purchased our 2004 Subaru Impreza Outback Sport Wagon after comparing many other cars using the following criteria in order:Price, safety,reliability,asthetics,handling 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.

Best Features

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.

Worst Features

Lumbar support for the drivers seat. Sunroof option. Full size spare please! Mats that don't crumple into the floorboard and pedals. Leather option.
