This is my second Outback. I owned one in the
90's and didn't like it. The fuel tank was too
small and the car seemed excessively noisy.
Needless to say, I was impressed by the
improvements in the '04 models. I have the
L.L.Bean edition. The ride is impressive for a
car in this price range. The fit and finish are
high quality. It perfoms well in the snow and
slush of New England. The sound system is
first rate. I enjoy driving this car. I wouldn't
hesitate to recommend it to anyone.
On-Star. Ride quality. Comfort. Handling. The
car stays flat in the corners.
Noise levels could be better, especially at
highway speed, but not bad enough if the
radio is on.
