I have heard good things from owners of Crosstreks. They say they are a little slow but otherwise they like them. I would consider one myself but my 2004 Xterra is also a little slow. What would I gain? The Xterra is dependable. With only 75K miles and a 300K potential It could be my last car even though I can afford a new one.

I once bought a new Subaru from the dealer in Beaverton. I ordered it from the online sales manager, got a good price and no sales hassles. An easy and pleasant process. I think ordering is often a good way to get the best deal if you want a brand new car. The dealer has no carrying costs (interest) if it is not on the lot.

To get the best price for your old car you have to sell it privately but many people don't want to deal with that. Understandable.
