Subaru listens to it's owners
By Ralph on


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


Have 2500 miles on the Outback, had a GL w/200k before. This is a great improvement, the car is significantly quieter, and the torque acceleration is much much improved. The entrance/exit is tough, and could be improved by memory settings so it would slide the seat back and forward when you exit and enter. Non multi-port FI leaves the occasional accelerate/decelerate bounce in slow traffic. Overall I really like the car.

Best Features

Quality of interior, exterior Good engine compartment layout Love the all-weather features (too bad for those who live in warm areas!) Cruise set well-not too loose (Honda) or too tight (Ford)

Worst Features

Tilt wheel travel-more up/down, should have in/out More leg clearance on exit or entrance of the vehicle Lose the center headrest in the back-it limits vision, and I feel obligated to keep it
