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

Review

Limited Wagon has lots of room and a great auto to drive on Vermont ski trips. But - we had to replace the clutch at 28000 miles and again at 52000 miles. At first we thought it was my wifes driving (but she had driven stick shift cars for many years)now we think it is a design flaw. Plus when reving the engine to drive up an incline a horrible smell would enter the cabin. A transmission seal leak??

Favorite Features

Great in snow - (AWD & ground clearance) and could put six foot skis behind front row seats.

Suggested Improvements

Needs a heavy duty clutch for manual transmission. Also seat heater switches always being turned on accidentally.
