I made the mistake of showing Subaru AWD (comparison) video to my wife. She doesn't want to buy any other brand AWD/4WD vehicle. So we will be probably getting an Outback. I am leery of getting a 2013 because of the new engine and second generation CVT. Might wait for 2014MY so that all the kinks will be worked out by then.
The engine is already being used in the Forester for 2 years and the Impreza already has the "2nd generation" Subaru CVT.
Also if you wait to 2014MY, in 2015 an ALL NEW Outback will likely be coming up for 2015MY...
