I have this car as well as a 2002 6cyLL
Bean edition. The 2004 is more than
adequate for highway driving; I commute
100+ Miles per day.The 2004 4cyl is
definitely lighter in the handling but
the ride, engine and transmission are
smoothe. It has adequate pick up to get
on the highway. I am happy with the
vehicle and Subaru's in general. My
mileage is 24-25 per mile consistently.
All wheel drive; economy; performance
and generally good reliability.
