Not perfect, but getting close...
By LaFamigliaGonzalez on


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


So far so good, and with Michigan
winter coming, we'll really know for
sure. This car replaces our Jeep
Wrangler - seems light-years different,
I know - but not really! The Outback
Sport has WAY MORE luggage and
passenger space, is vastly more
comfortable on long trips, and uses a
LOT LESS fuel. But we never took the
Jeep on anything worse than reasonably
smooth dirt roads (lots of camping),
and the Subaru tromps over those even
more comfortably. But I wish it were
just a little roomier in the very back.
The "styled" hatch really cuts into
cargo space.

Best Features

AWD!!! Wonderful engine, smooth shifting, respectable gas mileage, snappy steering feel, comfortable (sporty) seats, lots of storage cubbys and power outlets. And AWD!!!

Worst Features

CUPHOLDERS! This is America man! The clever-but-fragile one in the dash is silly, and the one in the center console will hold a 12oz can or a small coffee. Stupid! A cupholder in the back, too please! The more luxurious (and expensive) Forester has it right.
