MY 2003 OUTBACK
By RICHVANWAG on

Vehicle

2004 Subaru Outback H6-3.0 35th Anniversary Edition AWD 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 4A)

Review

THIS IS OUR SECOND OUTBACK--WE PUT
135000 ON A 1999. THIS CAR IS THE H6,
WHICH IS A BIG IMPROVEMENT IN POWER.
WE FOUND THE OLD ONE AND THIS NEW ONE
TO BE BULLETPROOF. THE NEW ONE HAS HAD
NO PROBLEMS WHATSOEVER. WE HAVE DRIVEN
IT 14,000 MILES IN LESS THAN SIX
MONTHS, AND NOT A SINGLE COMPLAINT. IT
GETS REASONABLY GOOD GAS MILEAGE (ABOUT
25 IF YOU HOLD IT TO 75MPH ON THE
FREEWAY) DROPPING TO 23-24 IF YOU DRIVE
IT 80-85, WHICH IT DOES COMFORTABLY. I
DISLIKE THE NOISE LEVEL IN THE CABIN AT
HIGHER SPEEDS. IT IS AN EXCELLENT SNOW
CAR. THE HIGH CLEARANCE IS
A REAL PLUS IN DEEP SNOW.

Best Features

I LIKE THE NEW ENGINE MUCH BETTER THAN THE FOUR CYLINDAR. I LIKE THE DEPENDABILITY. THE NEW ENGINE IS JUST A MUCH BETTER PACKAGE. I ALSO LIKE THE WAY THE INTERIOR HOLDS UP--THINK IT IS THE BEST VALUE AROUND FOR WHAT YOU GET.

Worst Features

THE SIX IS ONLY AVAILABLE IN THE TOP END LLBEAN MODEL AND IN THE LOWER END. WE BOUGHT THE LOWER END AND WANTED THE LEATHER INTERIOR, SO HAD TO HAVE IT INSTALLED. THEY NEED TO REVISIT THE AVALABLITY OF THE SIX IN ALL MODELS. SUBARU NEEDS TO WORK ON THE NOISE LEVEL IN THE INTERIOR.
