2004 Subaru Outback Wagon H6-3.0 L.L. Bean Edition AWD 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This is my 5th Subaru. I am completely sold on the car. I have never had any major problems with any of the Subarus I have owned. This is absolutely the best car for the money on the market today. It can be used in the city, on the road or on the farm...all of which I do. It's performance and smoothness of it's ride is far superior to my husband's new vehicle. My next car will be a Subaru also.


Favorite Features

SAFE! Smooth handling and ride. Extra interior room. Easy read dash instruments.


Suggested Improvements

Change placement of OnStar antenna so it will not cause wind noise. Add extension on sunvisors to cover center of windshield and side windows.

2004 Subaru Outback Wagon Limited AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 4A)


Review

My 2003 Outback Limited is the fourth Subaru I've owned. Built to last, they handle superbly in any weather. The ride is smooth and comfortable, overall fit/finish superior. Subaru's dealerships have improved in customer service significantly in the last five years; I'm now more satifisfied with my Subaru dealer than with the local BMW dealer I've dealt with.


Favorite Features

Moon roofs; nine speaker stereo; day/night mirror; dent/rust-resistant lower side panels; gas mileage


Suggested Improvements

Leg room, acceleration w/ AC on.

Review

WE TRADED A LINCLON NAVAGATOR FOR OUR NEW OUTBACK WHAT A RIDE ! THIS OUTBACK BELIEVE IT OR NOT GIVES A MUCH MORE COMFORTABLE RIDE THAN THE NAVAGATOR. I REALLY ENJOY FILLING THE GAS TANK WITH A $20 AND NOT A $50. THIS ALL WHEEL DRIVE IS THE GREATEST.


Favorite Features

THE DUAL MOON ROOFS, ON STAR, 8 WAY HEATED POWER SEAT


Suggested Improvements

TINTED SUNSCREEN GLASS ALL AROUND

Review

I do like my 2002 Outback Wagon. BUT there seems to be problems with the brakes on the Outbacks. I drive a 5- speed standard, mostly interstate driving of 100 miles at a time. I had new brakes at 14,000 miles and another set of brakes at 25,000 miles. There also seems to be problems with needing to replace the head gasket at anywhere between 40,000 and 60,000 miles. This is unheard of in vehicles as this problem doesn't unually occur until 100,000 miles. I'd be interested to hear if other folks are seeing and having these problems.


Favorite Features

I love the way it handles in and out of snow.


Suggested Improvements

FIX the brake problems and head gasket problems!!!!
