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


I had to have the stereo replaced (after fighting with the dealership over it because they initially refused to repair it) while it was under warranty because of a faulty CD player. Soon after the repair, the speakers quit working. Some of them will work some of the time, but never all of them together and most often, none of them. Dealership won't back their work. With 50,000 miles on the car I had a dash light burn out. Soon after several instrument panel lights have burned out - windshield heater control, passenger side seat warmer button and the air circulating button. The cruise control lever sticks and often won't disengage. CV boot shaft just replaced. 62,000 miles. Now what?

Best Features

Comfortable car. Handles well.

Worst Features

Interior lighting. Poor longevity. Difficult and unreasonably costly to replace.
