So how many Newbies are former VW TDI Sportwagon Owners?

Thought this might be an interesting question being a former TDI Sportwagon Owner myself! I personally think a strong percentage of former TDI Sportwagon owners will become Outback owners. I would have probably been 1 before if it wasn't for the fact the nearest VW dealer was 25 miles away while the nearest Suburu dealer was 50 miles away!

I figure a dozen lost souls is the breaking point. Although I mean, they don't own them anymore. But sure.

You're in charge of the introduction poem this time, though.

I produced one for the Tribeca sub forum,

....and although I have owned a VW gas,...(and still want a 2004 era diesel) someone else can take a stab.

and we have had a whole lot of threads in the time of the bombshells about the VW and other manufactures faking their diesel emissions....(plenty to auto load)

I call B.S.

There wasn't a poem there, a haiku, or even a limerick in that thread! You just linked to my poem and Carnegie prize winning art.

I purchased an Outback 3.6R Touring in September and will be selling our 2013 VW JSW TDI back to Volkswagen before September 2018. We will keep it until just before the buyback offer expires. My wife drives the VW and I drive the Outback. But our family car has transitioned to the more comfortable Subaru Outback Touring.

I formerly drove a 2005 BMW 325 CI convertible. The Subaru Outback Touring does everything the Sportwagen does and more. It will drive us to Tahoe more reliably on snowy days. But I wish it could match the 43 mpg the diesel gets. When we shopped for the VW Sportwagen, we also considered the Subaru Outback. They compete naturally against each other for our requirements.

Subaru should sell diesel Outbacks in USA. But the VW dieselgate scandal may have killed the prospect of diesels in America. It's a shame. I love diesel efficiency and torque.

The Outback, VW Alltrack and the Audi Allroad seem to be the natural migration paths for disaffected VW TDI owners.

The Touring model has compelling luxury like features that won me over.

This is my 4th Subaru, but it stands in a new class of luxury and appointments, and it makes me smile everytime I climb inside.

I didn't think it was great enough for his professional abilities,....hence zero signature.

@DavidPeab would have worked on it for 10 minutes and embedded a doggie Jude in it somewhere like a person designing US currency.
