2002 Subaru Outback AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
Review
I like my Outback, but I wish it had more power for the price. Gas mileage is only average - maybe 23 mpg, and that's not lead footing it either. Mine developed several interior rattles after just 10,000 gentle highway and around town miles. It's a decent car, hauls a lot of gear, but I won't buy another until they boost the power of the 4 cylinder because there's no way I'll pay $28K - $30K for the H6! (Might as well get a used XC70 or a nicer new Passat 4motion for that price...)
Favorite Features
Hauls a lot of gear. Good handling. Good stereo.
Suggested Improvements
Optional turbo 4 cylinder - why not a WRX performance version of the Outback? Needs at least 200hp. Mono- tone paint would be nice - the current two tone paint jobs look soooo 1970's. Split fold down rear seatbacks are nice, but they don't fold flat.
