2003 Subaru Outback AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 4A)

Review

We bought this rental car with 12K on it. wife drove it until it had about 90K on it then I started driving it. Only cons are its size--I'm 6' and this is a car that sits low to the ground. I'd rather have a SUV. Pros: reliability. NEVER a breakdown in 100K miles. Pre 100K repairs limited to brake pads, one O2 sensor, one tie rod end. Original tires lasted over 80K miles. At 100K I've had to do several repairs that would be expensive if you had to pay labor--AC hose, steering rack and CV boots. 105K timing belt change coming and will cost a bunch. Has typical subaru motor sound, but this car is going to run forever.

Favorite Features

Solid, reliable car. Few repairs.

Suggested Improvements

5 speed auto would be good to decrease engine noise, increase gas mileage, and get the most out of the small motor.
