2003 Subaru Outback AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)

Review

I bought my Outback in December 2003 and have just topped 5,000 miles. Acceleration is so-so, probably hurt by the AWD. My keyfob, for whatever reasons, does not unlock my doors in certain parking lots, but this is rare. Learn how to manually disable alarm. On the positive side, car is fun to drive, engine is quiet, car turns and handles well, automatic shifts smoothly, ABS braking is good, no mechanical problems and cargo room is excellent. My gas mileage has been similar to EPA numbers.

Favorite Features

AWD, heated seats, simple to use instrument panel, auto dimming rear view mirror, outside temperature readout and weather band channel.

Suggested Improvements

Give us a turbo option to work with the 2.5L four, similar to the Forester.
