Unhappy Trading in Outback today

For another one

Getting my wife a 2002 Outback VDC Black Granite Pearl. Took it for a test drive and loved the H-6. Although the 97 OB Limited we have has been good to us, the financing and deal we got on the VDC was hard to pass up. OB's sure have come a long way since 97

Yeah, they sure have! That is one cushy, comfy ride. You're going to spoil her. (I know, that's the idea! )

Well we just got back from the dealer a bit ago. Now I have to go through the putting the kids cars seats and hooking up the radar detector type stuff. She's pretty happy with it. As you say it's pretty cushy relatively speaking. She's put up with me for 13 years of marriage she deserves it

Talking sweety Peaty!

"She's put up with me for 13 years of marriage she deserves it"

That is sweet. I just hope for your sake, that she is satisfied with the Outback and the automatic! I sure was not myself, although my husband too bought it with good intentions. I could not get used to the bad handling and ride compared to my ex-OBS we trade-in. Now I have a GT and am happy, well he wants my GT, so I may buy a OBS again soon! Either way I am happy

The car we traded in was a 97 Outback auto so she's use to an auto (but prefers a stick it's true). It's a step up though because now there is power behind the wagon (flat 6, 212 BHP/210 torque) . I've seen published numbers of 8.3 sec 0-60 which isn't too shabby. If only they would put a stick with this motor. Plus all the goodies like the stability control (which can be switched of) auto climate control, 200w McIntosh 11 speaker (real subwoofer) stereo, double sun roof and all the other crap make it easier to overlook the auto. Also, we frequently trade cars so when she wants to have fun zipping around she takes my RS. Then complains it's a little too rough riding and loud for her tastes

I took it to a friends house last night to give him a hand w/ something. I was pretty impressed w/ the stereo system of all things. It's actually pretty diecent. I thought it was going to be just OK but I cant see any reason to upgrade it at all.

Default yea I thought.....

it would be pretty good. McIntosh is top-of-the-line audio equipment. I'm glad it turned out well and its does kinda move the car upmarket. Lexus has Mark Levinson, Subaru has McIntosh. Sweet ride Peaty.

Edit: peaty are you gonna get the beige painted black to match?

Default Hey Peaty nice wagon!

Glad to see your priorities are in the right order. Take care of the wife and she takes care of you... and looks the other way when you need to mod your car or go off for a track day or something.

Glad you like the car. From all accounts it's a major step up from the base Outback which is not too badly equipped itself. I keep hoping for an Turbo or H6 Legacy GT Wagon with manual transmission. I may have a while to wait yet...

I always say "If momma aint happy, aint no body happy"

I really wish that they would put an H-6 in a GT with a manual too, I think I'd be first in line for one.

I can tell you there'd be a line a mile long (well maybe not a mile ) out both sides of the dealer doors if Subaru put together an H6 Manual GT (Sedan and Wagon) They'd probably sell out their sales prediction runs and have to rescope their projections. If I were going to do this, I'd put the H6 in the GT Limited and put the Turbo (provided it was an EJ20T) in the standard GT cladding. Of course, if it was EJ25T all bets would be off and you could go for either variety.

Br, Dale
