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


Outback wagon with 36000, has had two
brake jobs, repeated problems with wind
noise, problems with 'check engine'
sensor system with light coming on
repeatedly, twisted gasket in rear
wagon window.
Generally, a big disappointment. I've
owned Subaru's for 20 years and this is
the poorest quality one I've ever owned.

Best Features

sound system (installed after-market mp3 player.)

Worst Features

wind noise likely to be a constant problem with size of side windows & gasket. - brakes poorly designed with increase in wheel diameter in this model -return of hill-hugger feature
