2003 Subaru Outback VDC AWD 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Almost from the day I took my Subaru home I have had problems. The car has poor and erratic idle, loses power while driving and stalls. Subaru (several dealerships) has attempted repairs, replacing MANY parts, over the three years I have had this car. Each time the problems resurface. Low idle, power loss, stalling at stops. I am past my 36,000 warranty and Subaru has committed to honor the warranty for existing problems, but that is little consolation as I have to continue living with a $32,000 car that I do not trust. On more than one occasion I was almost stranded on long trips with wife and baby.

Best Features

Dual sun roof is nice.

Worst Features

Performance from the H6 engine is not what is should be. The loss of power and stalling is frustration beyond words.
