2003 Subaru Outback Sedan VDC AWD Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

Review

I bought this car brand new in 2003. It has been problem free and reliable, I can honestly say this has been the best car I have ever owned. I would gladly buy another new 6 cylinder Subaru without a second thought.

2003 Subaru Outback Sedan VDC AWD Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

Review

Purchased used 1 yr old. 120K miles on the car so far. Never had mechanical problems. Wife loves it. Replaced McIntosh head unit after warranty ran out with aftermarket radio (First time replaced under warranty). Auto transmission jerks when downshifts from 2 to 1 gear at stoplight. Dealer inspected, no issues found. Average 25 MPG mixed driving. Replacing front brake pads every 20K miles. Wind noise is annoying after 65MPH even with replaced window seals. Needs more luxury features for $30K vehicle. It was my second Subaru after I loved WRX but probably will not be buying again. Better choices available for the money.

Review

No major mechanical problems. Routine stuff like brake calipers and pads but nothing major. Still is rock solid, lots of power (V6), great in the snow, slush and rain and fun to drive. Presently have goodyear assurance tripletred tires and recommend them on this car. All in all, still love the car.

Review

Have had the car for about a year now, and other than gas, the only expenses have been for the regular oil changes. Incredibly reliable.

Review

This vehicle has a very tight feel and is fun to drive, especially around curves where other similarly priced vehicles don't hug the road. It performs great at high speeds and changing lanes at high speeds is a breeze.

Review

This is a very good car, but hardly "Lexus-like". For one thing, the comparable Lexus is the ES300, which is awful for torque oversteer. But the ride comfort and quietness of the Outback don't approach the Lexus, nor my old A4 Quattro. And the handling has always been disappointing--yeah, I know it's a "sport utility sedan" and not set up for sport touring sedan handling like the A4, but I wish it was.

Great car with lots of luxury items. The stereo is the best car stereo I've ever heard. Beats Bose hands down!!!!! Not very fast from a green light but very easy to speed once you get moving.

Review

Remember the Subaru Outback SUS? Weird wasn't it! I bought a 2.5GT Limited instead. The VDC I am very happy with, wonderful engine, not so impressive transmission but still ample. The stero is out of this world! It drives wonderfully and is very comftorable.
