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


This is my second Subaru. Previously I
brought a used 1987 Subaru GL 4WD
wagon. I love to go camping and have 2
dogs. It had 104,000 miles on it and
when I sold it there was 155,000 miles.
The small engine was fine around the
city but lacked the oomph to pass on
trucks on up-hill 2 lane roads with the
a/c going. No major problems. I brought
a new Outback because I wanted more
power and wanted the AWD to go on some
really bad forest service roads. It's
great. The car has the power to pass
even up-hill. The ride is smooth and
comfortable. I am a lead to metal type
of driver and get 27 MPG on my
camping/flyfishing trips.

Best Features

The AWD andling is great

Worst Features

Light up the ignition key so you don't fumble in the dark. Larger cupholders.
