i also took the 08 outback sport out twice.
this one seemed to the best of the one in it's class but, not by much.
this one is on a 2 year lease so i'm "stuck" with it.
and don't presume you have a more open mind than anybody else when you don't know the full situation
also re-read what i posted. i have the good, the bad, the ugly, and the reality
Dang whoosh. Sorry to hear about your awful ownership experience. Hopefully, it grows on you a bit more. I've been wanting to test drive the '08 (auto) WRX, but there is no place within 30 minutes of me that has one in stock. Everyone seems to be carrying only the 5MT model.
