2003 Subaru Outback AWD 4dr Wagon w/Premium Audio System (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
The car feels like a lower-cost Eurowagon. The boxer engine produces a nice amount of low-end torque, sounds great and the shifter has a nice mechanical feel. Despite the raised suspension the Outback is quite fun to drive and handles surprisingly well, though it exhibits some body roll. The ride is comfy on regular pavement but can be really bouncy on torn-up roads. The AWD system is completely transparent to the driver. The cabin is nicely finished though unexceptional. Seats are very comfortable and shod in nice cloth material. The premium audio system can play very loud and clear, a nice touch. Cargo room is plentiful and easy to access.
Favorite Features
High engineering (AWD, rear differential, 4 channel/sensor ABS, balanced drivetrain layout, etc), good low- end torque from engine, slick manual shifter, great sounding audio system, accommodative cargo hold, nicely bolstered seats, just an all around sensible package
Suggested Improvements
Bouncy ride, brakes can feel spongy, lots of wind noise above 75mph, takes some work to fold rear seats flat, remote key fob is very finicky, driver's window operates slowly, no head curtain airbag available, could use a 6th gear, not as finely-built and refined as a Honda or Toyota.
