Seems like a easy pick with the limited info provided, but my .02 is the 2011 wagon with 39K miles and one owner is the choice I would make based on the info given.

Agreed... newer, one owner is better... but you say all things being equal... they never are, so you really need to do some digging before you decide either way... there will be some differences starting with $ - a big enough difference could make the 09 a better buy... a few bucks, and it isn't work the extra years/miles... so again, don't think all things are equal, because they aren't and even just 2 owners vs. one makes it harder to really know how the vehicle has been treated...
