Ditch the SUV
By cdski on


2004 Subaru Outback H6-3.0 L.L. Bean Edition AWD 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


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.

Best Features

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.

Worst Features

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.
