It's not perfect, but what car is?
By gatorband on


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


1st Subaru & 60K mi. later, still
tickled w/ it. Have had only 1 recall
item & a handfull of warranty-covered
issues, incl. one that was covered way
after 3/36! PROS: EXCELLENT
handling, esp. in bad weather
(rain/storms) & on dirt/gravel roads;
smooth & stable ride on pavement;
ample cargo space; good visibility;
overall reliability. CONS: sluggish
pick-up from stop (4cyl/auto); poor
cup holders; tight back seat knee-
space. Take care of it & it will run
forever! How many Subies do you see

Best Features

Stability/handling on twisty/hilly roads & in bad weather. Not just great in snow but ideal in howling wind & driving monsoon rains too!

Worst Features

Better placed & bigger cup holders; more low-end torque in the 4cyl; a few more inches of leg room in the back seat.
