This car has been perfect for my needs. I am able to cram beach gear, camping equipment or even frequent loads from home depot in the large hatch back. The color was cool in 2003, but I am tired of the two tone green paint 8 years later. My super-ru will climb up any hill, trudge through any un-plowed snow covered road, & crawl through mud along side any lifted monster truck. We may make it through tough road conditions, but we are the turtle, not the hare in the race.
Pros: heated seats
Cons: color of interiorI have driven this car through deep snow, wet roads, & it handles beautifully. I love it. Great travel car, smooth ride!
Pros: heated seats
Cons: gas milagethis car is utterly dependable, not particularly peppy but reliable and has plenty of space for dogs, gear and people.
Pros: Size and appearance
Cons: There is nothing that I can sayu I like leastThis is may second outback - I traded the 2003 with 140000 miles - It stil;l ran great but the trade value allowed me to get a great pricwe on a 2011. I also own an 06 Leagy GT Wagon and it has 80000 miles - I figure I'll keep it until it hits 200,000 miles GUESS WHAT - I got 33 miles per gallon on a trip from the Jersey Shore to Syracuse NY and back.
Excellent all-around vehicle
Pros: Open feeling in a smaller vehicle with great moon roof.
Cons: Could have more spaceCould use more space for my personal usages but overall it meets a variety of needs well. Good winter car that allows for fun in the summer. I've been averaging 26-28 mpg over the life of the vehicle. Seats could have some extra padding.
