The 5 speed makes up for being a little low in power. A downshift cures most issues.
Clutch issues have been supposedly fixed with a new assembly in the recent 2003's. Some early models (mine) got the old parts and are being retrofitted by Subaru under warranty.
We liked mine so much my wife sold her 2002 Outback and bought an '03 auto!

The AWD is very effective: better than 4wd.
Mileage is good, not great, but better than most.
Ride is very nice: it softened up a bit from the test drive.
It tows very well. I've had 1500 lbs on it many times.
Plenty of cargo space.
Plenty of passenger space in the back.
No problems yet and we've got a little over 12k miles.
Take the plunge if you can get a good deal.
