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


I've had an SUV, traded in for the
wagon and I really am impressed. On
the freeway, 70mph to 100mph is way too
easy to reach in my 5 speed tranny and
seems effortless. The best part is the
AWD system in the snow! No more
snowchains (unless it's blizzard
outside). Backseat can be folded down
to increase trunk space and I've able
to move one bedroom worth of stuff
(besides the bed and big furnitures) in
one trip. Though the leather seats
isn't the most comfortable thing in the
long drive despite all the different
seating positions adjusted. Fuel
economy is pretty good for this size

Best Features

AWD system.. great in snow, mud, dirt, slick roads, and of course, twisty tarmac mountain roads! Seat warmer, dual moonroof are great for camping!

Worst Features

Need more horsepower! Need that turbo put in like the Japanese B4 model! Seats needs to be a bit more plush. Handling is quite good, but the limited slip could be better to improve traction control.
