sorry to hear that it's such a dog. I'm really interested in a more fuel efficient family vehicle than my Tribeca, and was hoping to be able to get by with the smaller engine. There's no other vehicle that has Subie's AWD system.
Kinda' wish they could put BMW's 2.0T in there, or perhaps a diesel or hybrid. the Outback has got the right size chassis and AWD capability. Needs a better power plant.
