2002 Subaru Outback AWD 4dr Wagon w/Weather Pkg (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


This is my first Subaru. A little
dissapointed after all the great
things I've heard. It has alot going
for it but I feel it is way overpriced
for what you get.$25k for cloth,
manual, no moonroof, no homelink, only
frt. airbags,anemic stereo, 4 cyl. w/
adequate power at best. Left front
brake started squeaking
after delivery and still
sqeaks horribly. Found out
they are notorious for squeaking and
warping. MPG has been ok but have
never gotten near the posted 27mpg
hwy, 25mpg was my best and 23mpg is my
avg. going to work and back which is
95% Hwy. I get 24mpg on the same trip
with a RX300. However,the Outback is a
practical, spacious, nice looking wgn.
