Almost a Great Car
By DCU on


2002 Subaru Outback Limited AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Had the clutch "shudder" early and dealer eventually fixed it after repeated failed attempts to duplicate the problem. No problems since it was replaced. Wind noise on highway is annoying. Leg room in rear seats is too small. Mileage hasn't been up to advertised. Never gotten more than 26 mpg and usually it's only 20-22, even on highway. Great in snow, suspension and tire life are fantastic, extremely versatile, brakes are decent, winter package and amenities make this a real enjoyable car overall and I have found it reliable.

Best Features

AWD, heated leather seats, plenty of trunk room, all and all a fun and reliable car to drive.

Worst Features

More leg room in back.
