    '06 Subaru Forester X, 2.5L. Her previous owner named her tinto, but Heather has already re-named him to Thor.

    If I can get close to blue book for my Jetta, I should come out ahead enough to buy some new toys...

    I've considered the Forester if I were to trade in my truck on something different. Looks like a solid rig for what you have in mind for it.

    I did not name it Thor. Joe did.

    It's perfect for what we want it for.

    Let me know how you like it. My "bush vehicle" is still running strong but has underwent a significant chemical change. I fear it's not among us for long and I'll need to replace it.

    It will sit more often than not (I'm a fair weather bicycle commuter), but I need to haul camping gear, multiple canoes and a small boat for my adventures.

    LOL

    Thor is an awesome run at Brighton. We like to make believe how Thor would pronounce his own name. First, he sounded like a super hero, now he sounds more like the abominable snowman:

    We've had the Forrester in mind for years, but don't need a new car yet....it consistently gets great performance and reliability ratings; you guys should get years of great use out of it!

    Very nice! Jetta diesels are in high demand so you'll probably make out pretty well selling it.

    When I was a boy, I had a gerbil named Thor and a Manchester Terrier named Honda. Thor got loose and Honda, being a ratter, tore him into two pieces. I did not find out about this turn of events until I turned on my desk lamp and a two part gerbil fell out of the shade and landed on my desk, in EXTREME rigor mortis. Hopefully, your Thor will not suffer the same fate.

    Me too! That would be one ginormous dog to be able to tear this Thor apart.

    You poor, little boy. Did that make it so you never could have a gerbil again? We had them when I was a kid, too. I got turned off of them when they started eating their babies.

    Good choice.

    I'm on my second Impreza. My next car will be a Subaru. After I got my first Subaru, my mom got an Outback. My dad now drives a Forester. My father in-law got a Forester, and my brother in-law is contemplating an STI. When my wife's Corolla dies, she wants a Subaru.

    Subarus are contagious.
    O crux splendidior cunctis astris,
    Que sola fuisti digna
    portare talentum mundi.
    Dulce lignum, dulces clavos,
    Dulcia ferrens pondera.

    We only had one gerbil per cage, and they were both male as I recall, and I think I turned out just fine. I mean read my posts in here.
