The debate is over

After several months of debate, we finally decided to go ahead and get a 2nd car. For 8 years we’ve shared the one (a 10 year old Avalon) but between me wanting to be able to drive to GA when I want to and stay as long as I want, and the Avalon getting some age on it, we decided we might as well go ahead and buy it now.

We decided on a Subaru Outback both for the cargo space and durability and because I don’t like SUV’s (too big). It’s actually considered a wagon … Never thought I’d get Keith to agree to a wagon but he’s the one that suggested the Outback as a possibility after evaluating one for their sales force.


I can’t wait to take it on a road trip next week to GA!

    Congratulations. We are on our second outback. They are fabulous. Canadian winter/mountain roads demand an awesome car and our outback has never let us down. You can go anywhere in one. They are so solid to drive that I feel very safe. Never feel stiff and cramped after a long drive either. I am sure you will be very pleased with it. Marilyn

    Ohhhh, wow! Love that color. Perfect vehicle for heading off to the mountains. After all, the weather can change quite a bit between here and Florida. Happy trails indeed.

    Congratulations! I’m a big fan of Subaru. Had an Impreza and now a Liberty. We have wet winters where I live in Australia and the Subarus just handle the road conditions so well.

    Moved from a Suburban to an Outback and have never looked back. Now, to be fair, the Outback will not haul a horse trailer but other than that, it seems to do just about everything I need it to do ……and it has puddle lights, which I just love (they are so stinkin’ cute)

    sooo jealous! I’ve owned Subaru’s since 1989 – several of them. GREAT cars! My current is a ’96 Outback, and I’m ready for an upgrade – I want this one in BLACK! I’ll probably end up getting something early 2000’s though, we just never buy new. Enjoy your new Soobie!

    I have a 2008 Subaru Outback (named “Subie”) that I love, love, love. I think they are the absolute BEST cars on the road and, particularly because we live in Northern Michigan and enjoyed 260″ of snow last year! You will love driving it … a wonderful machine that will only break a sweat when you reach about 150,000 miles. LOVE!!
