Lives up its reputation

ReviewVery pleased with my Outback LL Bean H6 Wagon. Although it produces annoying wind noise (apparently a Subaru trait), and can use a five speed auto transmission to move it up hills easier, the H6 is very smooth and moves well on the highway. I find it enjoyable and fun to drive. It handles well, and I like the ride. The posi rear hinders the performance in snow as compared to non-posi Subarus, but you still feel secure. My brother's had 7 Subarus and talked me into buying this one. I'm glad he did. It was between this and the 4Motion VW Passat Wagon, but after talking to former and current VW owners, and reading that the VW's reliability reviews were horrific, it was an easy decision.
Best FeaturesHeated seats, smooth handling, silky ride, 6 CD changer, solid ride and feel.
Worst FeaturesLose the posi rear-end. Give the windows a frame to limit wind noise. Provide better quality leather seats, these are rather thin. Add a trip computer. Make it easier to remove and install the roof rack cross members. Add stereo controls to the steering wheel. Allow the rear seats to fold down flat
