A great car-that has some minor issues.
By Suzam on


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


Added hieght of the Outback is a plus, not as
high as an SUV but only slightly lower than a
minivan's line-of-sight. Short skirted pistons
can sometimes rap when cold but quiet down
after warming up to operating temperature in
this horizontally opposed 4 cyl. Expect low
20s for local driving MPG. Not bad considering

Best Features

AWD is FUN in snow and a help in all weather conditions.

Worst Features

Subaru has a "fix" for an external head gasket leak that the 4 cyl. tends to develop. A "conditioner" additive for the anti- freeze, which will seal the leak. Subaru extends the warrenty to 100k miles, as long as a dealer replaces the coolant and conditioner at the required intervals.
