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


Review

I love it. Sticks to the road in bad
weather like flies on dung. Very solid
ride but smooooooth. Loves to play in
the snow. Transmission seems a bit on
the slow side. It feels powerful but
accelerates like the manual 4 cylinder
models. Fuel economy is excellent
considering it's a "SUV". Starter is a
little hoaky in really cold
weather.


Best Features

AWD compass nice rims/tires weather band radio fog lights plenty of cargo space roof racks looks good


Worst Features

subaru needs to make the interior softer and wider. Also, this vehicle feeds on at least 92 octane gasoline. For a 6 cylinder engine it should be able to eat 87. Need to improve transmission performance.

Review

Great car, this is our second Subaru
(my car is the WRX). We compared the
other SUW's in this class and the
Subaru had all the features of the
Volvo, Audi All Road, Passat Wagon, at
much less of a price. Plus the
inclusion of one year of ONstar, free
general maintenence for three years,
and the Subaru safety record, this car
is a steal. It rocks in the Northeast


Best Features

Double moonroof, leather interior, steering feel and road sensing through the steering wheel.


Worst Features

Improve the decibel of road noise in the cabin. Possibly option a DVD system for kids. Come up with a Monotone color scheme for the Outback line.

Review

I bought a LLBean for $27100 from
Stevens Creek Subaru (San Jose, CA).
After driving the car for about 1000
miles, I can say there is nothing
comparable in this price range. The car
feels rock solid, has a very smooth
Lexus-like drive, first class
suspension, excellent visibility, a lot
of cargo space. The sound system is
very good. However, the car has 3 major
inconveniences: 1) the seats do not
offer enough leg support, (the lumbar
support is great.) 2) Wind noise coming
from the roof rails at higher speeds.
3)the engine is powerful, but the slow
transmission, makes it less responsive,
it will not let you drive the car as an
Acura TL-type S or a BMW.


Best Features

AWD, excellent visibility, cargo space, smooth ride, the car feels rock solid


Worst Features

Better seats, more responsive engine and transmission, passenger power seat should be offered ( at least as an option), GPS would be nice.
