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


After extensively researching and
driving several crossover vehicles, the
Outback seemed the logical choice.
(Others considered: Nissan Murano,
Mitsubishi Endeavor, Toyota Highlander.)
I bought the top-of-the-line VDC model,
and paid slightly under dealer's invoice
(whatever that means, given dealer
holdback and other strategems). I
needed a modest amount of cargo capacity
and good handling of mountain roads;
purchasing something larger just didn't
seem necessary. I'm very pleased with
the result--fine handling, power, and
visibility; a smooth, quiet ride; and an
interior that matches that of more
expensive vehicles.

Best Features

The smooth and quiet ride; Macintosh audio system; strong sense of safety under almost any driving conditions.

Worst Features

Some little touches would help: automatic up on driver window; electric controls on front passenger seat; slightly more leg room.
