Review
Third Subaru. First was an 86' GL station wagon= 279,000 miles till it rusted away aroung the engine. Second was a 96' outback=120,000 sold to a friend who took it to Baja to be a surf wagon. Bought this one used with 20k I'm now at 30k. So far, nice car, no mechanical issues, drives great, still smaller than the new ones (I wanted that) drives through almost anything (snow, sand, mud) very comfortable on the highway on long drives. Finish is solid all the plastic lines up (AHEM chrysler...) and the fuel econonmy is good 23/28. Biggest complaint, the automatic is slow, and chunky, it seems to rob the engine of power. Look for a manual. Subarus are the offical car of the Mountain West!
Favorite Features
Seats, Panoramic sunroof, Steering Its just a nice looking station wagon (hard to pull off).
Suggested Improvements
Subaru. Is it sooooo hard to make a 5 gear automatic? is it really that much cheaper to make a 3 or 4 gear automatic? C'mon. And please, produce a few (just a few) more manual transmission cars.....please?
