2001 Subaru Outback AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


We have driven our OB for 45k miles
now. My wife drives it to work in the
High Sierras during bad weather
conditons. We did have warped front
disc brakes when we bought it. It took
three different dealers before they
corrected the problem. Otherwise, no
problems to speak of. Oh yes, I
tightened the intake carburator
manifold housing with a hose clamp and
improved the gas mileage by 4 mpg! It
is a 4 cylinder. Yes, it is slow on
pickup. But we weren't looking for a
racer. Just a safe, reliable,
economical, all-weather vehicle. The
only mechanical complaint I have to
date is that the auto trans shift
lever binds when shifting from park
into gear.

Best Features

A safe, reliable, economical, all- weather vehicle.

Worst Features

Shift mechanism on auto trans.
