    Considering a few different vehicles for myself. Considering 2 Subaru models along with a few others. As far as the Subaru owners out there, would you go Forester or outback?

    Considering Pick ups, but pricing to me seems absolutely absurd. So an SUV and a trailer when needed seems a way better/more cost effective option.

    Go Outback. The Forester is very small IMHO.

    I've got a good friend trying to buy my 2000 GMC Z71 so I am now looking for another rig myself. Thinking Tundra or another truck like mine 2014-17.

    Agreed. I'm confused by what Subaru did there. The outback started as a station wagon and became an SUV the Forester started as an SUV and kind of became a wagon...or??

    Thank you for the feedback. P/U - would be great, but bottom line is Bang for your buck is just not there.

    Yeah. Sprinter seems like the ultimate to me as long as the mechanicals are reliable.
