How did you acquire your Subaru?

20,385

Asked by Oct 07, 2015 at 09:09 PM about the 2010 Subaru Outback

Question type: General

Have you noticed that Subaru vehicles on the secondary market that are clean
and for sale privately are pretty hard to find?   Did you know that most Subaru
owners keep their cars longer than most other brands and retain one of highest
resale value among older cars.   So,  did you purchase your vehicle new or pick
up a late model or certified car from a dealer?   How long do typically keep your
vehicles?

For used cars not more than a few years old almost all are sold by dealers. Clean used older cars are mostly by owners. Sleazy used car dealers should be avoided though! I bought a 2003 Forester with 75,000 miles several years ago and I had to look for a long time as Subaru owners in my area hang onto them. I suspect the newer cars are going to see a lot more turn over though. I can't wait to dump my 2015.

F0R: Sorry about that! I've a close friend who was thrilled to get his latest '09 OB LTD w/ factory NAV from me last year. It was unfortunately totaled in our 106" of snow. He couldn't wait for me to find him a clone, so bought a new '15 after reasonable study. He HATES it for several reasons, but mostly the sloppy handling and ridiculous roof rack. I installed the new fatter (19mm) ani swaybar on for him, which indeed improved rear body control, but the too-tall pig still rolls and plows through corners with way too much yaw and waywardness. I don't see anyone making a stiffer front bar yet to help out. Going to stiffer 18" wheels would help with steering precision, but the CoG is still a mess for such a soft spring/shock combo. Given skinny new inventories you should be able to resell your '15 easily. If you keep it try good aftermarket (cheap) 18" wheels with 60 series rubber, get the fat rear bar (it's only $100!), and try to not spill your coffee. And do NOT make the mistake of thinking the '10-14 are any better...they're worse!
