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


We bought our Outback wagon with a 5
speed and the 4 cylinder engine last
fall. So far, it's been a great car:
in bad weather (especially this past
winter in New England), the AWD system
is unstoppable. The car is comfortable
and convenient and we appreciate the
standard heated seats, CD player and
power driver's seat. Our only
complaints are that it's a little
underpowered and the frameless windows
generate a fair bit of wind noise at
highway speeds.

Best Features

AWD, heated seats, electrically heated windshield and mirrors, good gas mileage.

Worst Features

better window seals to prevent wind noise at highway speeds. redesign back seats so that you can fold one side without the other - current design means you have to fold both. auto-down feature for passenger front window and auto-up for both front windows, like vw passat.
