I've loved this car from the word GO!

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


I bought this Subaru in '05 with just over 50,000 miles on it. I LOVED it so much. It rallied in the snow, I never got stuck while living in Utah winters. I did have to replace the tie rods and cv joint but that is understandable having 127,000 miles on it.
I love the way the car rides and feels substantial on the road without being luggy.
The gas mileage was around 20-24. The head gaskets did seep oil and the check engine light had a mind of its own but the car ran like a champ! I am a Subaru fan for life-this was my third one. I sold this car a week ago to buy a newer one and I am very much regretting that choice because I miss it! Great for towing, camping and hauling all of sorts.

Best Features

Roomy. Great viability and openness. Sturdy. Good towing power. Great for sleeping in :) Dependable. Plenty of power for passing and hills.

Worst Features

Head gaskets, struts and front end could use some attention from Subaru. Very notorious problems there.
