Vehicle2004 Subaru Outback AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 4A)
ReviewAWD imparts an amazing sense of stability in the rain, and the very taut (but supple)suspension has a Mercedes/Volvo feel to it. Way above expectations for a $22,000 vehicle. Will never go back to a non-AWD vehicle. In 90 days/2,500 miles, zero problems. Flawless fit & finish & build quality, for mechanicals and trim. We don't drive that fast in town & the base 4 cylinder and auto goes plenty fast enough for us. Ours is the base model, but we appreciate Subaru making the AWD, ABS, 4 wheel disk brakes standard across the line. A Passat or V70 with the same equipment would be $10,000 more.
Best FeaturesAfter a base Civic, we enjoy the automatic and convenience features such as the heated seats, power windows and seat, auto-dimming mirror, etc.
Worst FeaturesAlarm fob on keychain swings like a pendulum, constantly making a tick-tock sound striking trim around the ignition. Radio/CD is so-so, even w/ the tweeter kit. Would have preferred side airbags available on the base model.
