2004 Subaru Outback H6- 3.0 35th Aniversary 3.0 Flat Six from North America
Fun to drive, easy to own
No problems as of yet.
Occasionally smell what appears to be Antifreeze, but no leaks, etc. Must be some coating used in shipping.
Car is fun to drive, has decent interior space, and does well in bad weather.
Wish gas mileage was a bit better. At under 5000 miles, just took trip and averaged 27.5 with speeds ranging from 70-80 mph. $-wheel drive exerts gas mileage penalty, and does not seem to coast as easily as my previous Buick Roadmaster wagon.
City mileage commute is averaging 20mpg with AC on. My old buick roadmaster with a 5.7 v8 used to get 18-19mpg in city and 25-27mpg on highway for a much bigger car.
Overall, is a fun car to drive and is easy to park.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I have no idea on buying an Outback or not. Who can show me the status of the Outback in China? Thanks...

Now many Subarus are sold in China. You can go www.xcar.com.cn to find a Subaru forum, and there are lots of comments on Subaru cars.
I plan to have an Outback H6 some time next year (2006). I like the car, and have tested it once around the 5th ring road of Beijing, and at 140 it just felt like 100!
