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


Were I not so into off-roading, I would
have kept this car. The ground
clearance is great, the
approach/departure angles significantly
hamper the grnd clernce and AWD
capabilities. AWD and cornering =
fun! Premium sound system is
Fantastic! Seat heaters are
wonderful. Acceleration is very
surprising (when gas is stomped). Gas
mileage surprising not so desireable.
I took this thing mudding, out onto the
beach, rally driving on fireroads and
Had A Blast!! Very versatile, very
fun. But I can 4-wheel my '87
Pathfinder and it cost a lot less! If
you're not into moderate to heavy off-
roading, you'll love all the features,
safety and fun of this car.

Best Features

Ground clearance; dual sunroofs; seat heaters; Fantastic Upgraded Sound system!! AWD in mud, snow and cornering is Amazing! Can sleep in back and look @ stars through rear sunroof. :)

Worst Features

Better approach and departure angles (for better off-roadability; opening rear windows (for dogs); wind blockers for sun roofs (too loud); window gaskets need constant "fiddling" @ dealership.
