Great car until it hit 100k miles
By bartemaeus on

Vehicle

2002 Subaru Outback L.L. Bean Edition AWD 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

Review

Up until the 100k mark, the car was flawless. But after that it went downhill. The transmission leaked and cost $2k to fix, the belt broke at least twice, belt pulleys had to be replaced twice, and the A/C compressor died. That was the final straw and we traded it in. I had hoped I would get a few more thousand miles out of the car. It was still a great car to drive, smooth on the highway, and never got stuck in snow.

Favorite Features

Heated mirrors and heated wipers. Very stable on the road.

Suggested Improvements

Improve reliability, reduce cabin wind/road noise, improve gas mileage.
