I've owned my LLBean Outback Wagon for
almost a year. I recently drove round
trip from San Francisco to San Diego
and was extremely pleased with the way
the car handled and performed. It is a
comfortable and safe car to drive on
long trips, great visibility, good gas
mileage, great on steep hills and
curves, and very forgiving around sharp
turns. I'm very pleased with the car.
6 disc CD changer, 9 speaker audio
system, self-dimming rear view mirror,
interior climate-control, two moon
roofs, On Star, Momo-designed steering
Bigger glove compartment, built in
recessed sunglass holder compartment.
This is our second Subaru Outback.
This car is built so well, no problems,
always reliable. I love the handling,
the feel of the steering, great brakes,
wonderful amenities. I highly
recommend this car. This car is
refined enough to take to the city for
the latest opera, yet tough enough to
cross steams and go where I really
waant to take it.
The higher clearance allows me to go
where other cars fear to go. The AWD
is sure footed in all conditions. The
6 CD changer is convient and sounds
very good. Subaru finally got the
front cup holders right too. FANTASTIC
I am tall, 6'3", and not get
comfortable. The driver's seat does
not move far enough back and my right
knee is at an awkward angle against the
stereo. The steering wheel should
adjust higher too. My 1999 Outback had
the same problems.
I traded up to the '03 LL Bean after
owning a Toyota 4Runner for 8 years.
It goes everywhere my old car went
except very rough roads. You get a
lot of car for the $ and the cost of
ownership is WAY less than a clunky
SUV - insurance and gas both cost a
lot less! Very well designed car
inside and out.

Make it available in a 5-speed! Add a
place to hold a cell phone/PDA besides
the cup holder or coin holder. Add an
out of the way place to store the
extra floor mats. Make the back seat
fold down in two pieces instead of one.
