|AvidHiker||ROFL, you guys are responding to a 4 year old thread! (actually, a post that never received a single response) But, glad to see that one guy's 2.5 still makes him self conscious.|

Differences between 2016 2.5i LTD and 3.6R LTD
I apologize if this has been covered before; the search function did not reveal any prior.
I read the excellent and rather complete treatise at cars101.com on the Outback 2016 by Joe Spitz. A very comprehensive analysis as near as I can tell and if there are comments about it, I would love to be pointed to those threads.
