2003 Subaru Impreza Outback Sport AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


I totaled my '99, but it saved my life. I had reservations about another one because it was VERY noisy, the shift linkage was awful and the clutch worked best parked. There were a lot of ignition problems, and the rear brakes were drums. But having two dogs, always had manual transmission, and not wanting to be sitting high off of the ground left me few choices. I ended up with a 2003 with 18,500 miles on it for $13,800. I love it! Subaru addressed every issue but the rear brakes (sigh). It is quiet, no hood scoop, more power, and the best shift linkage I have driven yet. It feels like a Legacy.

Best Features

Shift linkage, solid feel, and quality.

Worst Features

Rear discs, come on, this is the 21st Century, I know you have them, they are on the other Impreza models!
