2003 Subaru Outback AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


I think it was my fault buying this car, because my wife needed a wagon or something really fast because she needed it for commuting to work. Suvs were out of the question, but now we feel guilty because anything is better than this junk car. Forget about going on vacation because there is TOO MUCH WIND NOISE!!!! Its almost like having a separate stereo system, one for the radio, and one for the noisiness of the car. You won't get stopped because people love the way it looks because it is ugly, especially the '03 model. We are hoping to trade in the Subaru before it depreciates.

Best Features

safety, reliability, fuel efficiency, easy to drive, not alot to love about this car!

Worst Features

less wind noise, better interior, bigger and louder horn, better dashboard mechanics.
