Hi all, after owning Honda products, I now have a '99 Outback Limited. Very strange. I had a '92 Acura Integra and loved that car. Drove it to Tucson from OH after several harsh winters. Then baked it in 5 Tucson summers before driving it back to OH for two more harsh winters. That car was a friend and it was difficult to part with. Now I have an Outback. Always wanted one. Saw tons of them in Durango CO when I raced my mountain bike there. I thought that it would be a car that really could reflect my lifestyle. So far I love it. It's an automatic so, after years of sticking it, it's quite a change. I've never had so much room. And with my bike rack on top, I have all the room to carry my gear. I tend to keep cars for quite a while so, I hope I made a good choice. I'm glad I found this site. Hopefully I can learn from you folks about what I need to know to keep my Outie around for years to come.
