We have had a 2004 Outback for several years, but in the heat of Southern Arizona, decided it was time for a change. Previously, having leased three BMW 540s and an M5, I had a wandering eye. I had an appointment lined up at BMW after Subaru (never made it there). But the Outback had been great, so I wanted to check out the deals on end of season Outbacks. Imagine my surprise when I found out that the Forester had been favorably remodeled and has superb off-road capabilities so we can take it out on the rough roads to get to great mountain biking trails! And that the XT was made for that! And that it had a turbo engine that reminded me of the BMWs!!! Done deal. Ask for Curt!
