Our 2010 will probably end up the kids ride. The kids are 4yrs and 1yrs old right now.

What would I replace it with? Well if anyone makes a Tachoma sized 4x4 pickup that has 4doors with a 6ft bed that gets decent mileage that would probably be the replacement. That way the wife and I could go do some camping in a warm camper anytime of the year.

I have a 2013, if the 2015 offers a 2.0 direct injected turbo and at least 6 gears in its automatic and better infotainment, Id consider trading mine in.

Or the Forester Turbo's new CVT

That's a tad too early to replace my 2012 but I will most likely replace it with another OB when I need to.

I don't think you'll see a 2.0 turbo in an Outback... without the CVT the Forester uses attached to it. And even then, I doubt they would drop the H6 for it.

I would trade my 2011 for a Jeep Wrangler 4 door, except the Outback is comfortable and does many things better than the Jeep would. So... Probably pay it off and keep it, then get a Jeep.

Too bad Toyota has not redone the Tachoma but kept the same truck since 2007.

I will wait for a decent hybrid or diesel for trade in
:29:+1
A hybrid or hybrid/diesel wagon or truck with good mpg and low emissions.

Toyota Hilux TD has the four doors, but the ones I have seen were all 4.5' beds which doesn't work too well. Maybe the offer a 6' bed in OZ. Kinda like the TACHOMA.

I will buy another just after they announce they are making a hybrid version.
Get a gasser before all the high pollution metal battery versions come out.

My 2011 only has 7700 miles on it since I work at home, so I think I'll have no problem getting fifteen years out of it. I like the idea of a more affordable Tesla Model S equivalent for my next car.

I don't do first gen runs but I'll be interested in knowing how it looks, what engine choices they offer and if I can get it in stick. Then I'll wait it out at least the first year or maybe the second if interested.

Naw, I keep my cars for 10 + years. I just hope it is ugly and not more wagonish in ride height or else I'll scream.

As the crow flies we are 9 miles from the Tesla plant. Our town is about 16,000 strong and there are three Tesla's on our street. Two of the original Elise based sports cars and two of the new S- sedans. The bummer is that our house faces East West not North South so not the ideal set up for a 10KW or larger solar system - which paired with the Tesla would be the cats meow for power and car options ;-) One street over north south facing houses there are about 8 houses with 8KW or larger solar systems one of the Tesla's belongs to the house with the largest solar set up. Haven't had a chance to BS with the owner yet but I bet they have an interesting take on the whole electric car and solar system thing.

If I hear the 15 is coming with the 2.0 TID I will wait and buy a 15 and hold off on the 14. I still have my 13 and will keep the 13 as well as get the new 15 only if it is a 2.0 TID.

Don't do first gen runs, especially after all the issues with steering shake reported here and other weird stuff that seems to have been resolved in the 13 including the suspension.

I'll only upgrade if there is a 6-speed manual turbo diesel available that is not a base level model. Nothing less else I stick with my original plan of driving this till the wheels fall off. The ball's in your court SOA.

I agree about 1st year runs as well, especially Subaru. After seeing the new Forester in person I have a feeling they will blow the first 2-3 years of the next Outback. The only thing that would catch my attention would be if X-mode and some of the tech screen gizmo's from the new Forester Touring made it to the new Outback.

In all seriousness I will be keeping this '13 SAP till the wheels fall off. Im more curious about model year 2014 for the Outback. I wonder if they will offer at least LED tail lights. That's the one thing that is missing from the '13 car.

I will wait and see what the new model has to offer. If I was a Subaru fanboy, I might just commit to an upgrade two years before it arrives. But, that is not the case. This Subaru purchase was a bit of an experiment in our family. I picked up the car for my wife. Normally, I would have spent more for her car. But, I liked the mileage / utility mix and decided to try it and get get an understanding of this price segment. My brother picked up a Prius Plug-in and I am very impressed with that car. A vehicle that is a hybrid or plug-in hybrid would be high on my list of replacement cars. I drive a Lexus RX 450h, which is very nice luxury hybrid. I may give the 450h to my wife and buy myself a new luxury / sports car ... we might then keep the Subaru for utility usage. Currently, I share a Toyota Landcruiser with my brother for utility usage and I might continue with that approach and just sell the Subaru.
