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

Review

This car also offers a great performance even with the base, 2.5 L engine. The performance can be further improved by installing the K & N high- flow air filter instead of the factory one. I found that the K&N filter significantly improves the low-end torque. I also noticed improved a/t performance (smoother operation), but not the fuel efficiency. The latter might be due to impressive 23/30mpg (city/highway) numbers, which I already had registered right after my Outback passed the 3K miles mark.

Favorite Features

The Outback is very reliable, stable in both snow and rain, has virtually no blind spots, thanks to the large “green-house”. It has just a right size for a small family and an ample cargo space, which is wisely proportioned: its length is larger than its height.

Suggested Improvements

Sliding back seat would be nice
