I love this car already; for one it can
go up my 20% grade driveway, something
my sebring convertible could not (when
covered with snow).
I don't like trucks/big suvs's and other
ugly gas guzzlers, but wanted the big
cargo. I don't think there are many cars
with such a good gas mileage yet are as
versatile. Storage is huge and roof
cargo is easy to use (i.e. no need for a
ladder to reach it).
I don't find the car performance so bad;
it's not nearly as smooth as the v6 i
had on the Sebring, but it's more
linear, power is the same at any RPM,
whereas some V6 i tried like the Mazda 6
wagon only had punch at high RPM.
Definitely more fun to drive that
similar price small suv like RAV4 or CR-V.
- Huge cargo (especially after folding
- All wheel drive
- Handling just feels great, much better
than the Sebring.
- millage compare to suv's
- decent towing.
- Utility car that doesn't drive like a
- You can fold the rear seat back 60/40
but the seat bench bottom is one piece,
so what's the use. you can't fold half
and seat somebody on the other half !
- Alarm remote clicking against ignition
area (fixed by adding longer keychain
- Slideable back seat for more back seat
room or more cargo.
2004 Subaru Outback H6-3.0 AWD 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
After 2 Foresters (that I really liked), I upgraded to the V6 Outback Sedan. It's really fun to drive, is very comfortable, and looks good too. The pick up is a little sluggish, but a world of difference better than the Foresters were.
Heated seats and mirrors, V6 engine, OnStar.
Remote trunk release, option of V6 with a manual transmission would be nice.
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
