The balance I need for my family
By jszilvagyi on
Vehicle
2004 Subaru Outback AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
Review
This car has offered the perfect balance of performance, comfort, fuel economy and reliability for my family. I have experienced cars that are better in one or two categories but this has been perfect for loading up my family for week long road trips as well as my daily commute.
Favorite Features
Subaru's AWD system is still the best I've experienced (also driven Audi and BMW). The car clearly communicates what the wheels are passing over without being rough. It is more agile than I would have expected from a car weighing as much as it does.
Suggested Improvements
I would sacrifice some of the performance for better fuel economy by getting taller gears. I don't like that the engine runs at 3.5k rpm at 60 mph. I believe there is enough torque that it could handle these speeds at 2.8k or so and be more pleasant inside.
