2004 Subaru Outback AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


What a dog this car is. Funny looking side panels, what are those about. Ever try to transport a dog in the back? No ventilation = unhappy pet. Cup holders are useless since they are too far back. And the thing auto shifts at the strangest times. Now it sounds like it's blowing its nose around 1500 RPM's. I'm going back to Toyota where I should have stayed. Give me back my Tacoma, please.

Best Features

Good resale value (I hope) cause its gotta go!

Worst Features

Vent the back with push out windows or a roll down back window. Please don't ever put those goofy side panels that make it look like its been in an accident.
