Default Outback Diesel

Hi there.

I am Outback Diesel owner from Poland - country between Germany and Russia in Europe
I always wondered why Subaru owners love their cars, so I bought one. I still have no clue why, but I already love mine.
Hope to find here plenty of reasons to sell diesel and buy 3.6 (and how to convince my wife that it's a great idea)

Quicker you say?
My friend used to say that driving a car in general is dangerous, so you need a fast car and you have to drive it fast - to minimize the period of time you are on the road, during which you are exposed to that danger - but i am afraid it wouldn't convince my wife

Answering your question - all 3 countries you mentioned were members of Soviet Union. Do you think anything has changed since then? Russia says 'jump' and they all ask 'how high' - otherwise Mr. Putin turns the gas tap off
Not mentioning we still have border with Russia...

Yep - you are right about that oil and gas! How sad it is....
Also, I forgot that Kaliningrad Oblast... how sad and how true! Where did you buy your Subaru OB - do they sell them in Poland? Where is the car made, Japan or USA? How much did you pay? Our outbacks are made here in Indiana.
Thanks.

I want to believe it was produced in Japan, but I am not sure. My VIN number starts with JF...can I check it somehow?

I bought it here in Poland from local Subaru dealers. Paid circa $47k (for comparison for 3.6 I would have to pay $70k) - I know it's a robbery . It is so called Active version. Here we have 4 possible versions Trend/Active/Comfort/Comfort Navi.
Diesel 2.0, 150hp with 350Nm torque = 258 lb/ft, MT. Mileage 27MPG city/36 highway (conservative eco-driving) 33MPG my driving.

If your VIN starts with JF, then it is made in Japan. All cars made in Indiana, US, have VIN numbers starting with 4S.

was made in Japan - you mean parts were made in Japan, but possibly were assembled somewhere e.g. in Hungary? Or it was made and built in Japan from A-Z?

There is a free website that you can get and decode the VIN number - it will show you, where it was assembled ... just Google it - on US Google website because I know in some countries you cannot access Google US - like Switzerland - the local carrier switches you automatically to your local country's Google website... as far as I know, Subaru does not have any assembly plants in Europe although there is talk (in Japan) about opening one in Russia in 2015.
