2003 Subaru Outback Sedan H6-3.0 AWD 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This is our 5th Subaru and it is driven 60 miles round trip everyday and we use it to visit our daughters in Westchester and Fairfax counties every 3 to four weeks. This H6 is by far the best Subaru we've owned. The ride is very good, stable, responsive on the expressway and most of all reliable. An added plus is that it looks great. The car earned our confidence. Living in Rochester NY, we do get a lot of inclement weather; ice, snow, sleet, wind, etc. When that happens the Saab 9-5 stays in the garage and the Subaru becomes our workhorse. Can't say enought good things about the car.


Favorite Features

Comfortable cockpit; very good seats; excellent climate control; good instrument placement.


Suggested Improvements

A most satisfactory car.

2003 Subaru Outback Sedan H6-3.0 AWD 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

H6-3.0 sedan is a nice balance between AWD utility, and 'near' luxury features. Smooth quiet ride, decent performance, rock-solid Subaru reliability, nice features like heated leather and sunroof, and most importantly, AWD for mid 20K is hard to beat.


Favorite Features

AWD, 'weatherband' on radio, reliability


Suggested Improvements

Front end styling

Review

We're very happy with our purchase so far! One of the selling points was the all wheel drive and it works wonders in our rainy climate. We also liked the look of the vehicle better with the optional spoiler which we did purchase.


Favorite Features

We're enjoying onstar, the optional auto-dimming rear-view mirrors, and the in-dash 6 CD changer. Overall, we like the look of the vehicle because it has the feel of a luxury sedan with a sporty feel about it.


Suggested Improvements

Although the vehicle gets less than average gas mileage, we're more impressed with its overall performance and how much fun it is to drive

Review

IN MAY OF 2001 I PICKED UP A 2001 LL BEAN OUTBACK WAGON AN TWO DAYS AGO MY WIFE AND I UNCEREMONIOUSLY DUMPED OUR 2000 NISSAN ALTIMA FOR A 2003 H-6 3.0 OUTBACK SEDAN. HAVING VOTED WITH OUR WALLET AND POCKETBOOK SAYS IT ALL.


Favorite Features

MORE THAN ADEQUATE HEATING AND AIR CONDITIONING CAPACITY, GOOD STEREO, EXCELLENT POWER ADJUSTABLE DRIVER SEAT, HEATED FRONT SEATS, WINDSHIELD WIPERS AND MIRRORS. SOLID FEEL.


Suggested Improvements

5 SPEED AUTO TRANSMISSION. LESS NVH & OUTSIDE NOISES. THE RIDE COULD BE A TOUCH SOFTER. BETTER REBOUND SHOCK DAMPENING. DOME LIGHT SHOULD STAY ON FOR 20-30 SECONDS.ILLUMINATED DOOR CONTROLS ON THE DRIVER'S SIDE SO YOU CAN SEE WHAT YOU ARE PRESSINGAT NIGHT.
