fun drive for low $$$
By cfe on


2004 Subaru Impreza Outback Sport AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Traded Lexus RX300 for WRX & feel 20
yrs younger. Very fun w ample
storage for activities. 9500 mi. Took
time to learn power characteristics
(weak low end). Rough throttle tip-in w
somewhat lumpy power band. Superb
traction & AWD system. Very tossable w
some understeer (sedans have bigger
rear sway bar than wagons). Likes being
driven aggressively. Easily squirts
though traffic. Stable & relatively
quiet hiway cruiser (w16s, 17s noisier,
rougher ride based on test drive). Some
rattles but curable. Solid chassis.
Stereo upgrade barely acceptable.
Better mileage than expected.
Exceptional paint. Would buy again.
Great dealer experience.

Best Features

Fun, power, comfort, ride, versatility, steering wheel, driver position. Visiblity. Traction!

Worst Features

More braking power. More refined power delivery (aftermarket remedies abound). Outside temp gauge.
