2003 Subaru Outback Wagon L.L. Bean Edition AWD 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

After two years, no problems. It is the best "snow" car I have ever driven. Tracks solid in all weather conditions. Window and mirros defoggers make driving in bad weather a breeze.


Best Features

Traction, windshield de-icer, mirror defoggers,


Worst Features

Move clock to center, smooth out 3-4 gear downshift during hill accents. Make rear DC plug more accessible.

Review

I've owned my LLBean Outback Wagon for
almost a year. I recently drove round
trip from San Francisco to San Diego
and was extremely pleased with the way
the car handled and performed. It is a
comfortable and safe car to drive on
long trips, great visibility, good gas
mileage, great on steep hills and
curves, and very forgiving around sharp
turns. I'm very pleased with the car.


Best Features

6 disc CD changer, 9 speaker audio system, self-dimming rear view mirror, interior climate-control, two moon roofs, On Star, Momo-designed steering wheel.


Worst Features

Bigger glove compartment, built in recessed sunglass holder compartment.

Review

This is our second Subaru Outback.
This car is built so well, no problems,
always reliable. I love the handling,
the feel of the steering, great brakes,
wonderful amenities. I highly
recommend this car. This car is
refined enough to take to the city for
the latest opera, yet tough enough to
cross steams and go where I really
waant to take it.


Best Features

The higher clearance allows me to go where other cars fear to go. The AWD is sure footed in all conditions. The 6 CD changer is convient and sounds very good. Subaru finally got the front cup holders right too. FANTASTIC CAR


Worst Features

I am tall, 6'3", and not get comfortable. The driver's seat does not move far enough back and my right knee is at an awkward angle against the stereo. The steering wheel should adjust higher too. My 1999 Outback had the same problems.

Review

I traded up to the '03 LL Bean after
owning a Toyota 4Runner for 8 years.
It goes everywhere my old car went
except very rough roads. You get a
lot of car for the $ and the cost of
ownership is WAY less than a clunky
SUV - insurance and gas both cost a
lot less! Very well designed car
inside and out.


Best Features

V6, Dual moonroof, gas mileage, higher ground clearance than most cars, roof rack, cargo mat and rubber floor mats included, retractable shield for the cargo area.


Worst Features

Make it available in a 5-speed! Add a place to hold a cell phone/PDA besides the cup holder or coin holder. Add an out of the way place to store the extra floor mats. Make the back seat fold down in two pieces instead of one.
