Best alternative to SUV
By spokanewa on
Vehicle2004 Subaru Outback AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewI 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.
Best Features- Huge cargo (especially after folding seats) - All wheel drive - Handling just feels great, much better than the Sebring. - millage compare to suv's - de-icers - decent towing. - Utility car that doesn't drive like a 16 wheeler.
Worst Features- 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.
