    I mean in the new ad the Grandmother is telling her granddaughter (who has flowers in her hair) she met her husband under "This Tree" - and then the whole family starts hugging the tree. And the first ad (which seems to have now been pulled) the grandmother tells her "they were rope sliding naked" Whats next? Subaru showing people arriving at an anti gun rally in the latest models??

    Well---the location was Woodstock---and I guarantee that all 400,000 attendees didn't turn
    out to be libtards. We looked at Subaru's recently, ended up with a Rav4. Subaru does tend to slant
    their advertising pretty hard to the left. Seems to work---they sell a pile of them.

    I bought a 2014 Subaru Outback as my "compromise" vehicle. It's working out well in that role so far.
    The ads embarrass the hell out of me though. 5ae2c2358bade34791d9663b9b96c772.jpg

    I think I have the only Subaru in Portland with a NRA sticker on it.

    Just be careful which bar you park in front of . . .

    There's almost nowhere my old 86 Subaru beater won't go in the hills around here. The ads may suck but they are pretty dependable cars.

    I wont disagree with that - my daughters first car was a 97 Legacy - and we kept it for a couple years even after she bought something different - I drove it a bit while I kept it at my place - heck I once plowed through about 15" of snow with it. Great balance between front and rear but too low to the ground!

    They could replace the sun roof with a raised garden box so you could grow stuff while you destroy the environment.

    And it hasn't been tagged or keyed yet?? I like to have my vehicles as neutral as possible with nothing glaring to indicate it's mine. In case I'm somewhere I'm not supposed to be:cool:

    Umm, Japanese Volkswagen...nice. From my experience, and mine only, it's Subs that have the worst drivers. I know that's just me, but next time you're behind someone going too slow, or see an Obama sticker, it'll be on a Subaru.

    Almost as refreshing as seeing the black woman in my neiborhood who drives around in a Prius with a Nobama sticker on it.

    My experience is that Prius drivers are by far the worst. Then either drive too slow, or they tailgate you and go around you on double yellow lines, and they drive around with this confused expression on their faces.

    I just think that Priuses make way too much smug, nearly as much as a Nissan Leaf.

    I don't think we should blame cars for peoples shirty attitudes. My wife wanted an NRA stickers on her old rig so I out one on there. Parked it in Portland many times and never had a problem.

    The ads and marketing is horrible, but Subarus are great little beaters.

    My wife's 2006 Outback has been an excellent car! Great in the snow! Not much ground clearance but that's why I have a Dodge 4x4 PU.
    BTW, got a guitar/House of Blues sticker in back!:D

    Oops, forgot! The commercials are lame!

    I could help ya with that. Mine has an environmentally correct garden growing in between the rails on the roof, I use the sunroof to grow my tomatoes upside down.

    It works out great with a fresh snack right by the shifter.
