2000 Subaru Outback
|All wheel drive - great in snow||Some of interior features, i.e. drivers seat seems low|
|Feeling of safety; secure solid vehicle||Poor mileage - even though a 6 cylinder, it averages 14-17 city.|
|Engine performance - pick up & power: 6 cylinders, 257 h.p.||Looks like an suv; i wanted a station wagon like old subaru|
|Like the last 4 subarus only bigger, with better mileage||Shift lever button returns to sad design of past|
|Feels big & high enough off the road without being a truck / tank.||No lumbar support on front passenger seat|
|Vehicle exterior styling - height, ease of entry / exit if tall||Engine shifting at lower speeds|
|Acceleration of engine / excellent 4 speed manual transmission||Rough ride on bumps; 4 cylinder engine underpowered for this car.|
|Design of engine - easy access to belts & oil change etc.||Mileage efficiecy gauge is worthless. replace with a temperature gauge|
|Appearance: bought wheel arch moldings, love the look||Engine can be very loud outside of car, particularly at startup|
|Fuel economy is great at 35-50 mph||Fold down rear seat. would like whole seats to fold completely|
