2002 Subaru Outback Limited AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


I've had an SUV, traded in for the wagon and I really am impressed. On the freeway, 70mph to 100mph is way too easy to reach in my 5 speed tranny and seems effortless. The best part is the AWD system in the snow! No more snowchains (unless it's blizzard outside). Backseat can be folded down to increase trunk space and I've able to move one bedroom worth of stuff (besides the bed and big furnitures) in one trip. Though the leather seats isn't the most comfortable thing in the long drive despite all the different seating positions adjusted. Fuel economy is pretty good for this size car.

Best Features

AWD system.. great in snow, mud, dirt, slick roads, and of course, twisty tarmac mountain roads! Seat warmer, dual moonroof are great for camping!

Worst Features

Need more horsepower! Need that turbo put in like the Japanese B4 model! Seats needs to be a bit more plush. Handling is quite good, but the limited slip could be better to improve traction control.
