I can't believe it, a stupid thread on a car gets more hits than a thread on fly fishing.

I think that they ought to ban all NFR threads.

More usless info.

We could always start a thread about our favorite wading boots. That would generate a lot of fishing related traffic. And I don't think it's been done for at least 2 or 3 weeks. Certainly not more than twice so far this year.

Wait, are you really going to base your purchase on what other people think of you? Come on Dude,
im not really basing it on what my friends think. I said it becuase its a common joking theme with guys and wagons. If i based things on what my friends thought then id still be a bait fisher.

My wife bought me an Outback XT two years ago. The turbo, coupled with the 5 speed manual transmission, make it a blast to drive everywhere, in all conditions.

I'm not going to read this entire 6 page thread. Do you need to tow anything? If not I recommend getting a WRX. My 09 is amazing!

Just read this first page, Asking about towing a boat with the OUTBACK.
Dude you sold out trading your Outback for a WRX. Because it's SPORTY!!
Now your OUT of the Outback family and I think you should go find a WRX thread.

Just Kidding,
Lets fish if your GF Will ever let go you again..

Bill,

Do you have the 4 or 6 cyl. model? i keep thinking a subaru and a raft would be the ultimate rig, any boat launch you can't drive the subaru into you could carry the raft down.

Joe.
I have the 4 cyl. the 6 cyl would have been a bit of a gas drinker with the Miles I have to put down to get to the River. 100 miles Each way. about 156 trips in three years wow thats like 31,000 miles fishing the Yakima..Time to move to E-Burg..ok ok 10% of the trips were overnighters so maybe 29,000 miles..WOW ..

This thread is on more NFR than your posts telling us about your Ranger or your Quad.

Just saying.

You're sort of barking up the wrong tree. People in the Northwest LOOOOOOVVEEEE Subarus and hate American cars. It must be something in the water.
Being from Minnesota, you'll likely get ragged on hard and have to turn in your man card....and for good reason. I know I rag on anyone that drives a Subaru.

In all seriousness though, severely overrated vehicle. YOu'll never meet a gearhead that has high opinion of one. People that get Subarus are from the same population as people that drive Jettas or Audis. They wanted to get someething trendy and different but can't afford anything in the pirce range (I can't either). So they want to believe that buying this car somehow gives them an advantage on the road and make them a performance driver. That's why the guy that you give the bird to for cutting you off without signaling is likeley in a Jetta or a Subaru.
Even people that like Subarus will admit their folly when they let their guard down. As one guy put it recently
"Fun to drive.... when it isn't in the shop."
Or another when I lied and told them their car was nice:
"It should be for the amount of money I had to put in it".
Or another when I had to pull them out of the mountains with my American car.
'They should really tell people that these things should stay on pavement".
