vtmecheng, I agree with you on the cargo argument.
I sold my '08 Legacy GT to buy my OB. It had a full folding rear seat and I utilized it plenty, but I plan on taking many family trips and have already enjoyed the added cu. ft the wagon affords.
I also have a trailer, but I don't want to use the trailer just to haul an oversized item I could fit into a wagon.
Ground clearance and body cladding had nothing to do with my decision to get an OB, I already knew for my Legacy GT (and 2 prior imprezas) that a Subaru Sedan could handle any elements I might see, its the added space and convienence of a wagon that I wanted. I don't expect great handling from a 3000lb family wagon, but it surprises me how well it does for its size.
