Goodbye Passat
By Seattle on


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


I traded in my 1999 Passat V6. Was
rather tired of the Bosch electrical
drama all the time. I am only down
25hp from the 190 V6 in the Passat
and it tracks far better (AWD) and
handles about the same! Exterior
wind noise is minimal and interior
sound deadening is wonderful....like
the Passat.

The safety I feel is there as well. Just
to know the engine will submarine
under me in an accident and there
are imbeded roll bars in the door
coupled with good crash test has me

The boxer engine reminds me of my
BMW motorbike........smooth and
durable ( I hope).

Best Features

Handling, Tracking, Raised viewing, driving postion.....without the top heavy, wallowing of a SUV. Suspension technology, engine technology.

Worst Features

Lumbar support. Would like a sunroof which is not common with this model. Also leather would be nice.
