The only thing that I don't like is it
is hard to get in and out of the
drivers seat if you leave the seat in
the drive position. Some would find
that the power was lacking but I am
fine with it. For the size of the car
the fuel economy could be better.
Everthing else like. It is a solid car
that rides well and I have not had any
problems at all with it. It goes
anywhere and handles well and I would
buy another one when this wears out
which will be a long way down the road
the way it is built.
All wheel drive and handling. It is
comfortible to drive and ride in even
in the back seat. I can tow a small
trailer with it which it does great.
My first Subaru. Value per dollar
spent is the best of any car I have
owned. It is a marvelously easy car to
drive and its inclement weather
capabilities are second to none. If you
live in snow or wet weather climates,
this is the car...very stable and sure
footed on the road.
AWD, manueverability, heated seats,
weather band radio, and cargo room with
rear seats down.
There is always something to improve on
the car and I am never satisfied with
what carmakers have to offer. But being
an experienced driver, the one thing is
most important - AWD. So, the choice is
instantly limited. And Outback is a
really multipurpose AWD - 3.0 engine
gives enough acceleration power, but
you can still use it on bumpy streets
and even off road.
AWD, acceleration, safety, brakes,
excellent behaviour in snow and wet
air conditioner, menu driven navigation
system is rather confusing
What a value! I considered the Volvo
XC, Audi A4 and VW Passat and all were
10 grand more. Obviously for this
price you sacrifice a little quality
but not much. After having my kidneys
rattled on a daily basis in a
Landcruiser I couldn't be more
content. The car has some pep and
handles reasonably well. It is
definitely front dominant.
An absolutely loaded car for under
$30K. Every bell and whistle. Love
the On Star and weather band. Gas
mileage is superb-getting about 29 hwy.
The auto trans constantly shifts in
and out of 4th on backroads so I leave
it in third. Really annoying. The
armrest and center console seem to be
made to fit an extraterrestrial. The
Climate Control system is bizzaro-
you'll either bake or freeze. Best
using it on manual.
I bought a new Subaru Outback Model
2004, While a very pretty car to look
at, I am disapointed with many
features. It is impossible to not have
the car jerk when stopping or starting
from a dead stop. The seats (and I put
in Leather...paid extra) Are the most
uncomfortable seats I have ever sat in.
They are causing problems with my back
and hips....big time....my wife is also
experiencing the same. You have to be
an acrobat just to step in and out of
the car...you just can step in like any
other normal car..I have to twist and
turn and do the hokey pokey just to
enter the darn thing. It's only a
couple of months old but I plan to
trade it in ASAP.
4 wheel drive was nice in the snow
Stop making cars...or hire some new
engineers that know how a normal car is
supposed to be built and perform
