Best Awd For The Money — Love Subaru's we've owned 3. If you deal with snow and ice there are no better cars to have. Head gaskets on 2002 fail. We've replaced ours. Window seals go over time too. Other than that no problems. Drive happy!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great in snow. Lots of storage space. Good pick and acceleration

Cons: Fuel economy, smallish tank, head gaskets are known to go.

Good Overall — 205bhp,the car great clearance for a small suv, has a wonderful ride. does tend to have a ackword breathing noise when the air is on. the car is a excellant car though to drive and to experiance the outback in any city/country areas.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: ground clearance

Cons: automatic

Love My Sueb — Subaru's are awesome. This car is a sporty 4 door sedan with power everything. Heated seats, mirrors, windshield wipers. It's All wheel drive, Auto. Even with over 130,000 miles I would take it any where I need to go, even on the logging roads and old country roads. I love this car.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: It's a Sue B, what else do I have to say.

Cons: gas mileage

Good, Long Lasting, Roomy Car — good car, subaru is a long lasting, good milage car that has an unusual engine setup. easy to change oil and air filters and easy access to all major emgine components. all in all, a good car to start learning to drive with, as it doesn't slide on wet roads, and it doesn't run away if you press too hard on the ACC.

Pros: AWD, ABS. decent gas milage, and longevity

Cons: less than 30 mpg highway, tad underpowered at 0-10

Subaru Outback — it was a nice car, though the full time all wheel drive sucked fuel economy. The sound system was amazing, however, and general maintenance was SUPER easy. It was the first car that I got a lot of seat time in and overall, it was pretty fun.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: easy to work on, good stock sound system

Cons: fuel economy

2002 Subaru Outback L.l. Bean Edition Wagon — I wish the brakes were a little better...I just wish they were bigger size brakes. It's pretty quick, considering that it's an automatic, All Wheel Drive, and it holds a bunch of stuff. The stereo is stock, except for the Pioneer AVIC-N3 GPS/AV headunit. It has two large moonroofs, although only the rear moonroof slides open; the front just tilts. The paint is cool, because it has purple chips embedded in the black metallic, so it pops when it is sunny. It gets pretty good gas mileage, even when you floor it. The styling is pretty nice, but understated. The interior is very nice with mahogany trim and two-tone leather seats. The handling is nice too and handles nicely even at higher speeds. I reccomend this car and I would buy another Subaru.

Pros: leather, wood, moonroof, great stock stereo

Cons: brakes should be larger, wish the wheels were sportier looking

Subaru Outbackk — I guess its a good daily driver - pretty quick, great AWD system, good brakes, heated seats rock. Cold Weather Package... I get about 23-26 mpg so that helps a little but i still need to just get a bike. Cars suck. I love Cars - but I bang bikes in my head all day.

Pros: White

Cons: Gold

Got The Job Done — This was a very good first car. It was noisy and slow, but it safely got me to and from school for 4 years, and it had personality.

Pros: Made of quality materials, very reliable, good in snow, fun to drive

Cons: Poor acceleration, lots of engine noise, no side airbags, wasn't extremely durable.
