I've seen this thread on the Subaru Outback forum I frequent, so I thought I'd give it a shot here. Hopefully this isn't a dupe.

Technically I gave up my 2008 LL Bean 3.0R Outback because my daughter is driving it due to her wrecking her 2000 Outback with 231K miles on it. I sold the 2000 to someone willing to fix it up and it is back on the road again. I do prefer driving the Civic more than the old Outback anyway. No surprises there.

just curious, little off subject, but you brought it up. how did that '08 drive and such? to this day, if i find the right '08 or '09 legacy (albeit not an outback, but same drivetrain)...i'd consider buying it in a second.

to answer your question, i traded a Veracruz for the civic. divorce, didn't need/want the big SUV anymore.

I'm sorry but your cars are way too new if they are 2011 and junk like that. I gave up a 1995 Lexus Sc300. slow and bad on gas so I solved 1 of the 2 problems!

2009 Subaru Impreza wagon. I drove the 2017 Impreza and it was LIFELESS. In January & February of 2018, we'll see if I made a huge awful mistake. 'Cuz Subaru "lifelessness" gets up my steep New Hampshire driveway, snow or ice, shoveled or un-shoveled, slow or fast, NO PROBLEM.

Not sure about the legacy, but the Outback drives like a go-cart (in a good way). The 3.0R engine and 5 speed Automatic trans are bullet proof. I would stay away from the 2.5 4 speed. Too slow and known head gasket problems.

I still own 2 Subarus (wife drives one and the daughter the other) and found the 2005-2009 to be the best generation. Wife's is a 2011 and I would use it as a boat anchor in a pinch.

Gave up my S2k after owning for three years of ownership. Most fun car to drive. Wish I could of kept it!?118k miles when I bought it, 210k when I sold it.
Agreed honestly one of the most fun ive had driving was in an S2K I would love to have one as a track toy.


Let go of a 2014 Nissan Maxima with the ticking time bomb CVT.:D

I traded my 2013 Civic Ex Coupe. It had 42k on it and had issues. Esp. the climate control fan. it had a low whine that never stopped. My first long (9 hr.) drove me nuts since I had to use the AC.
Plus it had the feel of a economy car although much sportier than my 91 Civic DX.

I traded up from the 2013 EX cvt to a 2017 EX-T coupe, cvt. Bought a KTuner and I love it. the car is much more effortless to drive in traffic than stock and it gets up to 100 mph before you know it. Those bursts from 70-95 on the highway are such a blast. I need to look into brake upgrades for the front at least.

Traded my 2006 Subaru WRX wagon for my New 2017 civic Si sedan. The WRX was staged 2 and tuned with plenty of tasteful mods from suspension to power. It made 310 hp/330 torque and the turbo spooled nice an loud because of the td05 upgrade. I did love driving it but I love driving and working with Hondas more! Before the WRX, I had a 06 RSX type-s(pic below) with which I poured a lot of work into it and had big plans for it. Unfortunately it was totaled in a rear end collision. Looking forward to what I can do with this New 10th Gen civic Si though! ;)

I've owned a lot of old Subarus and got to the point where I was considering them project cars. I've never had one that didn't require some work - stuff I've never had to do on other cars. I got the Civic hatchback because I loved the look and want something more reliable.
