Vehicle2001 Subaru Outback AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewI bought the larger Outback vs my 1998
Forrester. The interior is NOT
midsized. Travel strains my legs. The
power seats on the Outback helps some.
The brakes on the Outback squeaks and
have warped, an unexpected extra
expense. I like the dark green, but
lack of insulation makes the air
conditioner ineffective. The great
sound system is muffled by road noise.
The 4 cylinder engine is far superior
than any US made 4 cylinder, but I
would prefer an US AWD 3.8L V6. I
swear by AWD, many times avoiding other
driver's mistakes. The plasic
appearance is a far cry from the
interior appointments of US made cars
20-30 years ago. 200,000 mile throw-
Best FeaturesAWD. Handles great. Sound system.
Worst FeaturesRoomier interior, better insulation, better brakes.
