2002 Subaru Outback H6-3.0 AWD 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


I love my Black & Gold 3.0 AWD Outback
Sedan! It's fun to drive, and handles
EXTREMELY well in snow and rain. It's
the most comfortable car I've ever
driven for long trips. 600-700 miles
in a day, and I still feel great at the
end of the day's drive. I have only
one complaint that my Service
Department has no answer -- the
heating/cooling system. Seems there's
no happy medium for it. Hopefully
Subaru will come up with a fix soon!
We've been a Subaru family for a long
time. I drove a 2000 Outback Sedan
before getting the 2002, with the
bigger engine. Glad I made the
upgrade, except -- give me my old air

Best Features

Dimming rear-view mirror, cold weather package with mirror & wiper heaters, heated seats. I love the way it handles! Very fun to drive.

Worst Features

Heating and cooling system -- it definitely needs a relook for design and performance.
