    2003 Subaru Impreza Outback Sport - (M5)

    Pros: All wheel drive makes the car feel glued to the road.

    Cons: Automatic transmission really saps the power.

    Advice: Get the manual - it's a blast to drive.

    Friends and family insisted that Subarus were very poor cars. They couldn't be more wrong. The Outback Sport (Impreza Outback) is not only affordable, it's got all-wheel drive, a peppy 165 horsepower, standard air, standard CD-player and it's an absolute blast to drive! Be sure to get a manual, though, as the automatic feels much weaker for some reason. Since I'm a big guy I needed the extra head and leg room offered by the Outback model, and it's very comfortable. After test driving the manual Impreza Outback, I was sold.
