Icy, Steep Hills? No Problem

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


I bought this car for two reasons: for a 60 mile (round trip) commute to work each day and to get me up the hill to go skiing on the weekends. This car has performed admirably in both respects. I was pleasantly surprised by how well my Subaru handled snowy or icy, steep hills. I didn't find a hill all winter that I couldn't get up and it didn't matter where, or how, I parked, I never got stuck. And this was during a winter that the papers said was the area's most snowy since 1916. In addition, the car is comfortable for my commute. This is saying something considering I am 6'1". Observed mpg: 25-26 with ski racks; 28-30 w/o ski racks. Great vehicle for camping, too.

Best Features

All-Wheel Drive; roof rack; headroom.

Worst Features

Sunroof option; better cupholders.
