    I thought these had promise, but they stopped making them I guess. I remember the old Brats with seats in the bed! Those seats looked like suicide seats.

    Just got to be patient, then call USAA with the VIN and write d check.
    Looks like mine beat yours, got to WI when you typed this, in my hands yesterday.

    2013 Limited, EyeSight, hitch, some protective and convenience goodies. So ends 37 years of manual transmissions and 28 years of white cars for me.

    Kind of interesting to have you car bark at you if you touch the stripe on the road or weave in your lane. Not so sure I want to test the other crash prevention features.

    Enjoy it.

    Picked up my new 2012 Outback this past week. I am also leaning towards the Yakima Forklift for my primary carrier and use my KingJoe Pro 3 (trunk rack) for when I need to haul the kids bikes around.

    I don't how you could drive an auto after 37 years ... I can't stand them after 25 years of sticks.

    The Frontloader is a nice tray. I've got two of them myself.

    Good job!

    Nice OB! I just don't know how you manage to get a bike on top of an already tall car, unless you're 6'6" or taller...

    I'm short, but a step ladder in the trunk helps with getting bikes off & on.

    I like my highroller much better but to work with the factory rack I'd have to get the universal mighty mounts and I've not heard great things about them. The one thing about the later model Subarus---the factory rails just do not inspire as much confidence of the design of yore. My 02 Outback rails are rock solid.

    I do like that the later models are taller. I can still get the bike on the front loader without a step stool. 5 ten and a half here.

    I think I heard the rear cargo space was about 4 inches shallower as well...to make more room for rear passenger comfort.. I'll decide whether I like that are not 1st long trip I take.

    Anyway I've been lusting after a new Subaru--the 02 is creaking, paint falling off and embararssing--it's been through heck...mechanically it is sound and if the boy ever gets off his arse he can drive it to what passes as a college here (CTC). Already think CTC is a joke as is College Algebra prof has cut classes to once a week so he can go coach varsity tennis at some highschool...what a crock..oh but that's a different story.

    ... and if we just ...

    Last summer I went solo camping with my OB to Colorado and coming from a big truck (Chevy Avalanche) I was used to a lot of room but found the OB more than adequate for camping and stuffing my bike inside my car when needed.
    It all depends on how you pack stuff and from years of motorcycle trips throughout the US, I know a bit about small packaging and not bringing needless stuff.
    I finally could bring my two burner stove and folding table though..

    My mom's 07 OB is parked next to mine and the luggage area in the new OB is differently shaped but bigger than the older model. The rear passenger room comes from a longer wheelbase and a different suspension design, making the floor flat in the back, and no strut towers sticking out either.

    On a side note; I actually modded my suspension by adding King Springs and this raised the OB by 1 1/2" giving me more ground clearance than my old truck had. Amazing when you go across creeks and 4x4 high clearance roads in the Rockies!!

    I use a folding step stool to get bikes on the roof of the Foz!

    (it is a PITA though)
    Alcohol may lead nowhere, but it sure is the scenic route!

    That's why I have a hitch rack, even though I am 6'2".... I know the roof can be safer for the bike, but at the end of the day I just don't have the energy to lift the bike any higher than that rack...

    I have a Thule T2 as well. Sometimes you need to carry more bikes though!

    Pics or it didn't happen. It better not be an auto. That looks like a killer car.

    Auto - that's heresy!

    It is an incredible car. Very well done. After years of messing around with STI's and Evo's, it is so fun being back in a proper sports car for daily use. I don't have any pics. I'll take some and post them.
