Sounds like you finally found the perfect car for you. I am much less concerned about mpg than most here I guess. I'm more concerned about awd, space, reliability, etc. But I'm using these as fleet cars. An empty service van costs about the same as my sport premium if not more. I didn't buy this as my primary car, actually not for myself at all. I just took a liking to it and kept one for myself. I would like more power personally, so I will prob fleet this one and get a WRX, ( or maybe an Audi, still not decided yet) as I found a love for Denver and altitude wreaks havoc on N/A 2.0 anything. So I'll probably look for a turbo something. I am seeing another jab post here though, referring back to remarks from stevehm like it was plagiarized. If I personally switch brands, I'll still own Subarus in my fleet, but will prob switch to a board pertaining to that brand immediately after a thanks and bye post. That would seem a logical transition to me. Btw- if your car wasn't so far away, id entertain the idea of buying it for my new sales manager. It looks like you cared for it very nicely.
