2001 Subaru Outback AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)

Review

My first new car. Had no problems at all until 36K. Engine overheated and ruined it. It was fixed under warranty. Then again at 50K car was leaking lots of coolant. Turned out to be the water pump, but again fixed under warranty. Other than reliability, its an overall decent car. Though a bit underpowered, its still fun to drive in all conditions. Very smooth and quiet ride as well. Good clearance for off-roading, but terrible approach angle. With everything fixed, I hope it will take me upto 200K.

Best Features

Smooth ride and decent handling for a tall wagon. Lots of interior space. Very quiet except for the roof rack/bike rack. Fun to drive off road.

Worst Features

Provide a longer warranty. Some more power for the flat 4. Better approach and departure angles. Improve the stock tires, its a disservice to the amazing AWD system.
