2003 4dr Wagon 165-horsepower 2.5L H4
4-speed automatic AWD
It was better than that of an SUV or truck but still has AWD and cargo capacity. Not as good as other cars, but still beats most SUVS out there. see full Subaru Outback review

With gas at almost $4/gal, and driving lots of miles, long distance, I would love to get better than 26 MPG on the highway. I am going to slow down though, and I still do love the turbo. see full Subaru Outback review
