2002 Subaru Outback VDC AWD 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
Review
Purchased after extensive review of car's in class. Came down to Forester or Outback. Better ride and quieter than Forester. Forester will probably be my replacement for aging Civic. Would have been happy with a Limited but wife wanted power of H6. Good car, but minor issues. Glove box hard opening, McIntosh stereo crackels on right channel when adjusting volume, water leaks in from child seat strap in rear of cargo area, has had two recalls todate. Gas mileage is not worth the performance in my opinion, wife typically get high teens on a tank, I can squeeze out low 20s with effort, best tank 26 mpg on highway. Overall Good Car!
Favorite Features
McIntosh stereo! Heated seats on cold mornings. Power of H6, pulled 2000 lbs trailer at 80 mph with power to spare. Good, quiet ride. Good interior lighting. Holds road better than any other car driven in poor weather conditions, you can feel grip of all wheel drive.
Suggested Improvements
Have the cruise control switch stay on after the car is shut off, remembering to turn it back on ridiculous. Better fuel economy. Wish the seat had a memory for two drivers. Coin storage. Capability to put a 2" hitch on for rear bike carrier, etc. Fix oil filter access cover.
