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

Review

I've had it now for 30,000 miles, and have not had any problems except a thermostat that was replaced (free under warranty, $15 otherwise). Excellent car, especially in winter; 5- spd with viscous coupling is wonderful in snow. (Highly recommended, better than automatic). The interior and exterior have held up very well, the car still looks and feels new. I feel the base Outback gives the best value for your money in the Subaru line. If AWD and reliability is important to you, this is the perfect car.

Best Features

(1) Viscous-coupling center diff: much better design than other AWDs in this price range. (2) Incredibly useful form factor (wagon) (3) Subaru reliability

Worst Features

(1) More low-end torque and better mileage (Diesel option?) (2) Low-range gearing (as in European Forester) (3) Flip-up rear window glass (for carrying long items)
