Re: What did you trade in to get your XV and why?
I traded in my 2002 Outback Sport, same color scheme as Wilco's above. Had about 118k on the odometer and the engine was sound, but unfortunately was having a lot of rust issues under the chassis. I guess the original owner was from somewhere up north (I bought the car in SoCal) where it snows a lot, and the salty roads got to it. For the ~8 months leading up to my Crosstrek purchase, I had the OBS in the shop a couple times a month spending more on repairs than I spend on my brand new XV payment.
Very happy with the upgrade!
