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

Review

1st Subaru & 60K mi. later, still tickled w/ it. Have had only 1 recall item & a handfull of warranty-covered issues, incl. one that was covered way after 3/36! PROS: EXCELLENT handling, esp. in bad weather (rain/storms) & on dirt/gravel roads; smooth & stable ride on pavement; ample cargo space; good visibility; overall reliability. CONS: sluggish pick-up from stop (4cyl/auto); poor cup holders; tight back seat knee- space. Take care of it & it will run forever! How many Subies do you see stranded?

Favorite Features

Stability/handling on twisty/hilly roads & in bad weather. Not just great in snow but ideal in howling wind & driving monsoon rains too!

Suggested Improvements

Better placed & bigger cup holders; more low-end torque in the 4cyl; a few more inches of leg room in the back seat.
