2000 Subaru Outback Limited 4dr Wagon AWD


This has been a great car - yes "car".
It rides like a car, handles like a car
and for the 95% of average driving is
exactly what you want. It does have
enough clearance along with the AWD
that you can get off the pavement.
I've done this some but mainly just for
camping not for some baja type
adventure. That's the beauty for me -
I'm not trapped by 4" of clearance but
I don't want a fulltime SUV ride for
those rare times.

Best Features

Wagon: With rear seats folded I can get a 4X8 sheet of plywood inside! It's also great for holding lots of camping gear. For a wagon, I think it's got decent styling.

Worst Features

4 cylinder has plenty of pep (165HP) but when it's at highway speeds on cruise control - a small incline causes it to downshift two gears. A pleasant ride turns into a jet takeoff from a noise perspective.
