This is my second Subaru. Previously I
brought a used 1987 Subaru GL 4WD
wagon. I love to go camping and have 2
dogs. It had 104,000 miles on it and
when I sold it there was 155,000 miles.
The small engine was fine around the
city but lacked the oomph to pass on
trucks on up-hill 2 lane roads with the
a/c going. No major problems. I brought
a new Outback because I wanted more
power and wanted the AWD to go on some
really bad forest service roads. It's
great. The car has the power to pass
even up-hill. The ride is smooth and
comfortable. I am a lead to metal type
of driver and get 27 MPG on my
The AWD andling is great
Light up the ignition key so you don't
fumble in the dark. Larger cupholders.
