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


Suby has been reliable and a perfect fit for our requirements.
Bought new in 2002, it now has almost 200k miles and is still a great car.
Replaced head gaskets at 150k (common problem), but otherwise not many repairs.
Her features and capabilities are a perfect match for our family of four.

Best Features

Ride is nice, drives like a BMW - chassis feels solid and one-piece. Engine is smooth and linear. Can't make her spin out even if you try - the safety nannies are very dialed in. This is a remarkably stable and neutral car - probably an excellent choice for someone who is uncomfortable with or anxious about driving.

Worst Features

Better fuel economy, diesel option
