Subaru takes a step up.
By Docaloha on


2002 Subaru Outback VDC AWD 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


I have been a Subaru fan for about 15
years, but felt it was always
underpowered. The new H6 solves the
problem nicely. The car is very smooth,
and glides through traffic. My wife
has a new Subaru Legacy sedan, and
whenever she or my daugther take my
car, they always remark on how much
better my Outback handles, and how
smooth it is. While it lacks some of
the luxury features of the next class
up, pricewise, it does have the best of
them including heated seats, great
stereo, very comfortable wheel, and
auto climate control.

Best Features

new H6 engine, allwheel drive with VDC, McIntosh Stereo, performance on both highways and bad roads, deluxe wheel, heated seats, soundproofing.

Worst Features

I upgraded to the auto-dimming mirror. That should be standard. Seats are good, but not great. Everything else is fine.
