    2004 Subaru Outback - H6-3.0 VDC (A4) Wagon

    Pros: Stability control

    Cons: Uses premium gas, 4 speed automatic vs 5 speed auto or CVT

    Advice: new model out next Summer

    Took delivery 29 Dec 03. I wanted an AWD car with stability control. I have about 750 miles on it now. We have had no snow since I got it, but should soon. I wanted to keep the price under $30,ooo if possible. Most cars/suvs with the stability control would be more $$. The Passat 4 motion might be a contender.

    2003 Subaru Legacy - L w/Special Edition Package (M5) Sedan

    Pros: The AWD, and overall quality of the vehicle.

    Cons: The low gas milage

    Advice: Research all of the features you want and go into the dealership knowing more than the salesperson

    As others, I appreciate the AWD feature of this vehicle, particularly living in WI. This is my fourth Subaru and perhaps my favorite. The ride is fairly smooth, quiet, and the car has a tight feeling overall. I have had no problems with the fit and finish or mechanics thus far.

    2003 Subaru Legacy - L w/Special Edition Package (M5) Sedan

    Pros: all wheel drive, ABS brakes

    Cons: seats are smaller, stereo only fair

    Advice: get the 2.5GT

    i was looking for a car to lease as my company transferred me to Central VA. wanted something comfortable, economical and more importantly, would take me through the winters (and now hurricanes). my mechanic suggested this car. Mechanically, very reliable, stable, good power for a 4-cylinder, great short shift and tight clutch. seats are not as comfortable as my mazda 626, a little noisier, and not as tight fit (windows have wind noise, doors sound a little tinny when slammed shut). Ride is fairly smooth, stereo only fair (i would recommend upgrade to 2.5GT - i only got the special edition), A/C - heating very good, love the moonroof and driving it in bad weather makes one feel very, very confident. With the 5-speed and highway driving (i drive over 200 miles a day), i'm averaging 27 miles/gallon, so i don't feel as guilty as the SUV owners. Over-all, i would buy again, but get the 2.5GT.

    2003 Subaru Outback - Limited (M5) Wagon

    Pros: AWD

    Cons: Passenger seat is not automatic, unlike driver seat.

    Advice: Go for what you want or need, then look at the price.

    The AWD system grips the road and is a noticeabe difference. Subaru Outback line has all the luxury (L.L. Bean and VDC models) of a BMW, the off road capabilities of a SUV, and the comfort and feel of a sedan. With a nice price.

    2003 Subaru Outback - Base (M5) Wagon

    Pros: Rearview mirror

    Cons: not enough ground clearance

    Advice: Buy from a reputable dealer.

    Excellent handling. Crash results are reassuring. Knowing it's a Subaru makes the price a bit more bearable.

    2002 Subaru Outback - H6-3.0 Sedan

    Pros: Heated windshield wipers

    Cons: Display lights on both radio and climate controls need to work together

    Advice: Drive all the other competitors and save the Outback for last, see the difference!

    After checking several all-wheel drive cars and trucks in the same class, the Outback H3-3.0 sedan wins! The interior is beautiful, easy to use and is assembled of high-quality materials. No other car could beat the options at the same price. I even tried the entry-level Land Rover and the Subaru is superior. The BMW's all-wheel drive system in not even close to the smoothness of the Outback. The best part is the power of the engine!! The supercharged 4cylinder of the Audi doesn't match the wonderful energy of my 3.0 boxer engine in my Subaru. It's my first Subaru and will probably not be my last. Once you drive one in the snow, you're sure to be sold!!
