They don't build them like they used to!

Vehicle2003 Subaru Outback Limited AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 4A)
ReviewThe new Subbie has some nice features (heated mirrors and wipers, built in CD changer), but the quality of my new Outback Limited is not up to the level of previous Subarus. The car is very noisy (wind & road noise) and has less power on hills than my old '92 which still runs like a champ. Also the body cladding is becoming a very high maintenance item. While paint quality has never been a Subaru high point, the cladding on the Outback is a real pain. Rather that using a color impregnated plastic, Subaru paints the plastic body panels with a paint (water color?) which is not at all durable.
Best FeaturesAWD, limited slip differential, power accessories
Worst FeaturesReinstate the quality control program of old. New Subarus seem to be built under a new standard. Could it be that Subaru is adopting GM (it's new partner) quality standards??
