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??
