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


Bought this car used for my wife in
July 2003 w/ 11k miles. We've put 13k
miles on the car in 9 months and have
nothing but good things to say about
the vehicle.

AWD and Cold Weather Package was a God
send during a rough winter in NJ. AWD
is fantastic in the snow - no
indication of the car slipping in
acceleration in deep snow. Great for
my wife who isn't real comfortable
driving in inclement weather. No
complaints from her now!

A great mix of car comform and SUV
characteristics with a youthful look
and feel.

Best Features

AWD, Cold Weather package (heated seats, mirrors and bottom of windshield) ride comfort and quality

Worst Features

better acceleration and gas mileage. Averaging about 24 mpg with mostly highway driving. Some dash buttons (cruise on/off, fog lights) feel cheap and inconsistent with the rest of the vehicle integrity. Some excessive wind noise at highway speeeds.
