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


I bought this car to use in bad weather
because my rear wheel drive Mercedes is
not exactly a snowmobile. I find myself
gravitating to the Subaru even in good
weather! Its great to drive and very
comfortable even compared to my E320. I
have the flat 6 engine with 212 HP and its
very responsive. The handling and
suspension are first class. This was my first
choice of an all wheel drive vehicle at any
price (except of course the all wheel drive
Porsche Turbo, which by the way is not as
comfortable as this Subaru, but it flies!)

Best Features

I like the handling of the all wheel drive system paired with the more powerful Subaru engine. Its a pleasure to drive in any weather! The fit and finish of this vehicle is superb. It looks like the team who built this car in Indiana really cared about quality.

Worst Features

With the incentives and very low interest rates, this car was a great deal. Also, my Subaru dealer, Anchor Subaru, of No. Smithfield, RI, was actually a pleasure to deal with! They were professional, no pressure whatsoever, very agressive on pricing and lo and behold, HONEST!
