Sounds like you favor cheap vehicles that seemingly run forever good for you ! but may I
point out that these are very boring, slow and not sporty in any way whereas a saab at least had aspirations to be sporty and interesting to drive ! and w/ even simple modifications, can/ could be MUCH better handling & faster !
Many of us want an exiting sporty experience not to drive a car / suv w/ the driving dynamics of a 1980's Chrysler mini-van ! and i'm glad you like them but frankly, Subarus, like most japanese vehicles are very ugly IMHO !
There is a recurring theme here that most guys just want a cheap, ill handling , boring ,slow car that runs forever ! I dont ! nowdays, (at least if the green new deal advocates dont get their way ,) we continue to be offered sporty , high performance cars and SUV 's and we have bought them !it is a good time to be alive !
Now i'm not opposed to SUV the wife really wanted one so I got her one but I said it had to be a convertible and there is only ONE vert SUV in the planet a Range Rover Evoque convertible ! It IS an interesting vehicle , requiring really only a spare set of wheels w/ dedicated off road tires ( figure 20 mins to swap them out ) to be a great 4WD adventure vehicle ! it handles VERY well and will go 132 MPH ( i tested it on the way home fr the sandiego dealer where we bought it ! ) and will even go thru 50 inches of deep water !
