2000 Subaru Outback 4dr Wagon AWD


This car is solid, but needs more power
and refinement. The ride is smooth,
handling is balanced, interior is
comfortable, traction is superb, and
ergonomics are decent. Of course, the
key selling point was the AWD and
Subaru dependability, which have proven
their worth. Plus, it's good looking.
After 38K miles, the only problem I've
had was a bad AC compressor, which was
covered by the warranty. But I'm glad
I don't have the McIntosh stereo (what
a loser). I'd gladly buy another,
especially the 2005 model, which
promises to be an excellent improvement.
