2001 Subaru Outback Limited AWD 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 4A)
Excellent road handling in dry, wet and snow conditions. However, anti lock brakes take longer to stop on ice.
The ride is so smooth, you can be doing 80 mph and it feels like you are doing 50. I had to monitor my speed closely during the first few months to keep myself from speeding.
I like the fact that you don't have to push a button to shift gears. Gear shifting is like a manual transmission (side to side). Moonroof has a shade to cover the glass so street lamps don't distract you at night.
Heated bucket seats and heated side mirrors.
Better acceleration. Better gas mileage: I average about 22 mpg.
