Just curious about what others gave up. I traded in my 2005 Corvette. I needed more room for the kids. Apparently it's frowned upon to stuff a six year old into the trunk.
That's a cool Mercedes, looks mint from the exterior.Chuck said:I went from driving a 1991 Jeep Grand Wagoneer to my Crosstrek. I retired the Jeep then later sold it for a very healthy profit from purchase!
The Jeep was getting me 12 mpg and the Crosstrek is getting me almost 31! The jeep was dripping with style and missed having something like that in my driveway.....so, much to my wife's chagrin, I picked up a 1973 Mercedes-Benz 220d (diesel). Style in gobs!!!
Love the XV as a DD!
Was the Outback Sport the Idea for the New XV or...more of the Impreza Wagon of today?Wilco1973 said:Traded in my 2007 Impreza Outback Sport Special Edition. It had 99,500 on the odo. I guess I could have kept it. There was nothing wrong mechanically or body wise. My subie extended warranty was about to expire at 100k and I just wanted to get covered and make a change.
I got 8k from the dealer.
I think Subaru decided to split the Impreza OBS off from the Impreza line. They now just offer the Impreza Sport sans the Outback. So yes, I consider the XV to be the true new Impreza Outback Sport with the added bonus of extra clearance (even more "Outback"). The 2012-2013 Imprezas (even the Sport) dropped at least an inch from previous model years.Wingnut said:Was the Outback Sport the Idea for the New XV or...more of the Impreza Wagon of today?
Ditto..... 2012 Impreza traded after 11 months ;Dbradt said:I traded my 2012 Impreza Limited hatchback in on the 2013 Crosstrek. I liked the Impreza pretty well. But that puppy just sat to close to the ground. I'm not a youngster anymore body wise, it was just hard dropping down into the Impreza's seat then pulling myself back out. I'm an old sports car dude so the low ride was alright I couldn't just couldn't make the Impreza work. The first time I drove an XV I knew this was the answer. The ride is much better too and it's not as noisy as the Impreza.
