Too Much Money for Too Many Problems
By Caroline on


2000 Subaru Outback Limited 4dr Wagon AWD


I was pretty enamored of this car with all its bells and whistles, but it ended up not being worth it. I've had to replace the transmission among lots of piddly, annoying stuff. The gaskets around the doors/windows have all come loose, the hatch back door handle doesn't spring back anymore, just replaced the burned out rear wiper motor, replaced the hyrdraulic lifts on the hatch - all within the last year and a half! My 16 year-old Honda has fewer problems and starts and goes just as reliably! No more Subies for me.

Best Features

AWD is nice for the times I didn't want to shovel my driveway, but not worth the lack of power and gas mileage. Again, bells and whistles were nice, but I'm not fooled by that anymore.

Worst Features

Pay attention to the little details and start making cars that have better fuel efficiency. We all know it's possible!
