Unfortunately, we can't have the FX w/turbo engine with 6 speed MT like the Legacy GT did.

What OB has memory seats besides SAP?
Big oversite for those of us that have more than one driver...

None, you have to get a bunch of unwanted stuff to get the memory seat. I would love to be able to just have the memory seat and keyless access push button start without brown leather or other unwanted additions that jack the price up. But all manufacturers seem to do this, what are you gonna do.

when the time comes, hopefully with in the next 6 months as long as I can find a good job, I will have a hard time choosing between a Forester and Outback. At least if they don't bring the keyless start and eyesight combination that I saw the San Jose Auto Show. Memory seats, Nice, but not a need. Just like Power Lift gate. Cool, but completely useless for me. How hard is it to close the lift gate on a Subaru, ummmm not hard for me.

I do like the new forester looks and the styling is completely subjective. I like the Outback looks better though.

The only complaint I had about the forester I saw at the auto show was that I felt the shoulder room was not as comfortable for me as the outback was. Heck, most cars that I would be looking at had the same issue as the forester. The outback just felt bigger and more spacious for the $$. The Subies seem to be the best value on the road in my mind.

Actually the only thing missing is a decent price. $29K for the base turbo is too high for what this car is IMO. That's more than an Outback 3.6R.

I agree that it is a little bit high, but they have similar HP ratings. I bet that is what SOA's marketing department is looking for price. But That Isn't going to stop me if that is what I end up wanting. Only time will tell. Waiting for the 2014 Outback announcement for myself.
