So are you happy with your 2005 OBXT 5MT? I'm considering buying one for my son to borrow to get to school (a commute). Any words of wisdom or warnings???When I bought the 2005 OBXT 5MT, I had a bunch of competing priorities.
Since I was coming from a 2011 Outback 2.5i Limited, "Fun to drive" was more toward the top (since the 2011 Outback wasn't fun at all).
Now that I've has the 2005 for a few months, I feel like my focus is more on dependability / reliability.
I'm PROBABLY going to replace the Outback in / by / around 2015 (and I typically only drive around 5K miles/yr), but the future is awfully hard to predict.
