Great Family Car —

I love my Subaru Outback. I bought this car new in 2001 when my son was born. I plan to give it to him when he gets his drivers license. It has been very reliable and now has 130,000 miles on it. No major maintenance issues. Just keep changing the oil, tires and the brakes. Excellent for winter driving because of its all wheel drive and high clearance. I have never got stuck while living through New England winters. The dual sunroof is a very nice feature, but it does take up a lot of head room. I'm 6'1" and I fit comfortably in the car, but the head room is a little tight. I do my own labor as I'm an engineer and somewhat mechanically inclined. The 2001 Subaru outback is exceptionally easy to work on by ANYONE. just buy the service manual at any auto parts store and you can do anything on your vehicle. All the sensors that do go bad are located on top of the engine block, easy. Even the O2 sensors were very easily changes. Mine is a 5 speed manual transmission, which makes it fun to drive. It is one of the few cars you can find these days if you like manual transmission. I also love the way the car rides and feels substantial on the road without being luggy. Although, there is a bit more road noise than I would like.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Winter driving
All wheel drive
good gas milage
2 sun roofs

Cons: Head room
road noise

Great Awd Family Car, That Is Extremely Quite And Very Nice For Long Daily Commutes! — Second Subaru, love it! I think Subaru picked up it's game in 2000. Their vehicles are very well built, don;t feel cheap, are comfortable and reliable! Easily competes with the luxury cars in my opinion, but is far more reliable then the European cars! Highly recommend!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great AWD family car, that is extremely quite and very nice for long daily commutes!

Cons: Wish it had the power and speed of an STi, but 212 hp not bad. A lot more comfortable than a sports car.

2001 Subaru Outback Review
alpinebhsv says:
Great car. Ran for 300k and survived thousands of ski trips. Just needed something newer with way less miles! Most annoying thing was the front speakers that are up kinda close to the Windows. Over time wind gets in when your driving and it makes this god awful whistling noise. I will not miss that.

The CVT was never good but with slower Subarus it was a good match to the weak engine. The Wilderness and it’s powerful engine (21 mpg avg. if you’re lucky) are big casualties of the CVT, which is co... Read More
