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


We purchased this car because of it's value. We knew it would be used in the snow and rain in the winter months and we were looking for a car that was AWD or 4 wheel drive, but it also had to be reliable. However, we didn't need or want a full SUV with a high price tag, insurance, and gasoline bills. We also wanted the ride of a car and not a truck. Moreover, our garage is built for three cars, not one car and an SUV. The Subaru just seemed to fit all of our needs from the weekly trips to COSTCO, to the weekends in Lake Tahoe we are extremely pleased with the Subaru and plan to keep it at least another 15 years.

Best Features

My wife would say the heated seats. We only work two miles from our home and the car barely has a chance to warm up in the winter on the the short drive. So the seats keep her warm on such a short drive.

Worst Features

More comfortable seats! We have had the car for just over a year and I still complain about the seat comfort.
