2002 Subaru Impreza Wagon Outback Sport AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Used'02 OBS.Car is solid.Hit a bump &
no rattles.Smooth ride, agile
steering.Gas milage low for car this
size, but has large engine for car this
size. Like that it takes regular
gas.Removed rarley used roofrack cross
bars & milage went from just under
26/gal to just over 27/gal.Had 5 weeks
( 2000 mi )and am very very happy with
this car.


Best Features

1st owner had upgraded speakers & subwoofer put in. Sound is excellent! I think better than my wife's Mazda Millenia. Also had armrest extender added. A must. Get it.


Worst Features

Nasty reflection on the windshield of the hump of the dash that surrounds the insterments. Fix that please.

Review

I'm at 20,000 miles, handling is more
like hugging the turns and the car
stops on a dime. I mostly enjoy driving
this car on unpaved roads, snow and
during ice storms. Only problem I have
is the manual transmition reverse gear
is a bit clunky. I also had to take in
to reset the computer because I had an
issue starting the car in the morning.


Best Features

Cargo room, AWD, looks good in and out. I'm a pretty tall dude but still have plenty of room.


Worst Features

I want Leather Heated seats, Submarine option so I can go Subin underwater, wings to fly and inflated cusion beds for comfortable sleeping in the back.

Review

23,000 miles and this car is still
absolutely problem free, running
strong, and fun to drive! I love the
standard all wheel drive and anti-lock
brakes, they make for very sure footed
driving in rain and snow. I have had
several long distance trips in this
car and it is a pleasure on the
highway, and it averaged a nice 29 mpg!


Best Features

handles great! solid reliability! lots of cargo room in a small footprint! feels secure and safe in all kinds of weather! powerful heater! outside temperature gauge.


Worst Features

only minor things: a standard armrest would be nice(it is a dealer option). nicer looking and feeling upholstery.

Review

Have only owned car 1 month, purchased
pre-owned at dealer where I work (Not a
Subaru dealer). This car is a BLAST to
drive. Has ride comfort of a much
larger vehicle but very sporty feeling
around corners & off the line. Plenty
of interior space/cargo room & looks
more like a hatchback than a wagon.
Fuel economy has been good (between 27-
28 mpg in mixed driving w/AC on ALL the
time!) AWD gives very secure feeling on
loose gravel & should be good on snow
also...My aunt has a '98 Legacy Outback
& loves it, never drove in snow before
buying her car, now can't keep her off
the road. No problems so far!


Best Features

AWD,Good fuel economy,Cargo space,Powerful engine & comfortable seats.


Worst Features

Overall interior is good, doesn't feel cheap except for cupholders, don't know why they bothered. Radio only adequate for talk radio & moderate musical volume. No midrange adjustment, speakers weak.

Review

The car is fun to drive and (so far)
it's reliable. I'll let you know what
happens at 200,000+ miles.


Best Features

Comfort, all wheel drive.


Worst Features

Exterior paint chips too easily. Who cares about the cup holders?
