Family Wagon

Last week Gillian and I bought a new 2010 Subaru Outback.  It makes us feel like adults, with a family vehicle.  We needed a vehicle that could fit both of us, a car seat, the dog, pull a camper, and still be fun to drive.  That last part is something most people just don’t really understand.
I know the Subaru Outback is a very popular vehicle, but not in central Nebraska.  When I told people that I was selling my truck and buying a Subaru, I was looked at like I was a Lepper, “how could I possible live without a truck!?!”.  Gillian got a lot of the same when she told people she was going to get the Outback because she can get it with a manual transmission, “How will you possibly drive with a baby and shift gears!?!”
Gillian and I’s taste in cars is very much the same, we like manual transmissions, all wheel drive, and unique vehicles.  I care a little more about engine performance and she cares a little more about creature comforts, but all in all there really aren’t argument about what car to buy.  Some may argue that a Subaru Outback and a BMW 325xi are not that unique, but in Grand Island they very much are. I am nearly positive we have the only Subaru Outback in town and I can count on one hand the number of 3-series I have seen.  I’m not trying to be elitist, well maybe a little, there just isn’t much beyond Ford, Chevy, Dodge, Honda, Toyota in Grand Island and most people don’t spend most of their weekends in out cities.
Anyway, I am rambling again.  Gillian and I both love this car wagon SUV…umm Outback.  Today I am currently sitting in the service center getting Sirius radio installed.  We are planning to take a trip to Colorado in a few weeks, the motherland for Subarus, so I really wanted to get the radio installed as soon as possible.
We bought the Outback from Beardmore Subaru in Bellevue Nebraska and as a final note I must say I recommend this dealership.  I hate buying new cars or going to a dealership for any reason and they didn’t do anything spectacular, but I was never at any point enraged, so that is the closest thing to a two thumbs up you are going to get from me about any dealership.  Also if you do come here and buy a car, mention our names and we get $100, so buy a Subaru… dammit!
