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


Absolute joy to drive! Plenty of power
(any more and I'd be in trouble) and
handles and drives so much better than
my Explorer. Interior room was a
concern, but so far I haven't missed it.
I just returned from a 1500 mile
roadtrip with mountains, interstates,
and some snow, and the car handled it
all better than anything I've ever
driven. I considered the Forester, but I
just liked the sportier feel (and lower
price) of the OBS.

Best Features

AWD confidence, smooth predictable handling, not too mushy and not too stiff. More power than most cars in this class w/o having to go to turbo and premium gas (ie. VW Jetta). Very versatile as long as you don't have to carry many passangers.

Worst Features

I added window tinting, which gives it a more sporty appearence. A moon-roof option would be nice. Warning: Short roof line may limit top rack-mounting options that interfere with liftgate. Just barely enough room for bikes, an extra 3 inches would be nice. Needs seat-back pockets!
