      2) Forester had damage from port fruckup.

      3) No other Forester available for awhile.
      4) Offered an Outback but at great value sans some options.
      5) Dealer renegs on that deal and wants more cash-ola.
      >He calls BS.
      6) More sequel potential in future.
      I didn't read it all, either, but that is the drift I get.

      Pair with a limited slip rear, and youre golden.

      Subaru has killed rear LSDs on everything but the STI and 3.6R models (and maybe the tribeca?) as of 2010.
      Which means if you buy a new Subaru, you're getting less AWD for your buck than you were in 2009 for the OB (or LGT or spec B) or 2008 for the Forester.
      This may be a reason to go used.

      Please elaborate. Aftermarket suspension for Subarus? I like the way that looks.

      Yeah, they're Aussie-market suspension tuners who produce springs that give a great ride on rough roads and lift the car about an inch or so - 2-3cm.
      Naturally, I see that and I start pondering Bajas....

      But the higher you get, the worse the FE, no?
      You need a used ALLROAD and tradeoff the FE hit (and maybe reliability, too) with the used pricing savings.

      Hahahaha, allroad. Youre hilarious. I had one and it was a POS.
      Get a used Outback, with a rear LSD, go to King Springs and get their springs and then get a body lift kit and voila, youll have something worthy of carrying a RTT. Since they are no longer offering an LSD in the rear on the 4 cyl Outbacks and Foresters, get an 09 or earlier Outback and be happy.

      What advantage does a lifted AWD wagon have over standard 4WD SUV?
      Do you want to ride to 60 in three seconds or drive there in five?

      Fuel economy... and IMO, in general: AWD for bad roads, 4WD for no roads.

      Awesomeness, mostly. It's also pretty difficult to find a SUV that'll still do 26 highway.

      Did I miss why you don't like the Tacoma Prerunner? It gets 20/26 with the 2.7-liter and a 5-speed and is 2WD but has plenty of ground clearance and a LSD.
