A great car-that has some minor issues.
By Suzam on
Vehicle2001 Subaru Outback Limited AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewAdded hieght of the Outback is a plus, not as high as an SUV but only slightly lower than a minivan's line-of-sight. Short skirted pistons can sometimes rap when cold but quiet down after warming up to operating temperature in this horizontally opposed 4 cyl. Expect low 20s for local driving MPG. Not bad considering AWD.
Best FeaturesAWD is FUN in snow and a help in all weather conditions.
Worst FeaturesSubaru has a "fix" for an external head gasket leak that the 4 cyl. tends to develop. A "conditioner" additive for the anti- freeze, which will seal the leak. Subaru extends the warrenty to 100k miles, as long as a dealer replaces the coolant and conditioner at the required intervals.
