2003 Subaru Outback AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
Review
The 4 cylinder is slow, but once you get it up to speed, it really does handle like an Audi. Hitting gravel or sand, the AWD can feel a bit wiggly at first - a bit awkward in emergency handling. A bit cramped in the front; my Civic has more leg and headroom. Beware of service at Santa Monica Subaru. I had to fix an air filter problem they caused; left the clamp loose. Why put in a filter if you're going to let dirt into the intake manifold? Subaru Customer Relations is not on top of things either.
Favorite Features
In comparison to SUVs, I'd say the handling is great and the fuel economy is quite good. Just for 5'11" and taller, it is quite cramped.
Suggested Improvements
Improve with higher interval service components and products. If you have to spend $400 for fluid, brake, oil checks and an air filter debacle at Santa Monica Subaru often, something is wrong.
