subaru van : Anyone hear anything about a rumored Subaru minivan slated to be producedwithin the next year or so? If there is, I'll be first on line.********************************remove NOSPAM from email address********************************There was a Subaru 'van' exhibited at the recent Geneva auto show -all I caught, at the tail-end of some cable show, was that it wassix-passenger. Anyone else know any more (particularly those a littlecloser to Geneva than Chanhassen, Minnesota, USA?)Cheers,David---------------------------- ---------------------Vicki and David Eastwood - From: ()Subject: Re: Subaru van coming?

Not sure if it'squite what Americans want, and I've not heard any rumors of a new minivan.It'd be nice, though... 7 seats and AWD, possibly with the SVX's engine(anyone know what's going to happen to THAT?)... that'd be sweet. Might be enough to get even ME to buy a minivan.+--------------------+------------------ ---------------------------------++----- ---------------+------------------------ ---------------------------+In the latest edition of Automobile Magazinethere was a picture of the Subaru Exiga.It is a cross between a station wagon anda minivan. It has three rows of seats andis powered by a 2.5 liter engine. Automobilesaid it might be sold in the US sometimein 1998. The Exiga was on display at theTokyo auto show.
subaru van : I am writing to all that may be interested in having a reliable AWDSubaru van in the US fleet. As a loyal, long-term Subaru owner,recently forced to give up my Legacy for a mini van, I wrote a letter tothe President of SOA.The reply that I received was through a customer service representative(Peter Bortner), who said that they like to keep their loyal Subarucustomers happy and would pass on the information to Product Planning.I know that this will not happen overnight, especially with only oneperson writing in. That is why I am trying to enlist everyone's help inthis venture.Since GM is starting a buy-out of Subaru, to take place over the nextfew years, I am hoping to make this venture a reality before thathappens. As we all know, there is nothing on the road like a Subaru.George MullerPresident and Chief Operating OfficerSUBARU OF AMERICA INC.2235 MARLTON PIKE WCHERRY HILL NJ 08002-33801-800-728-2783If you would like to contact me via e-mail, please feel free to:When I bought my 2000 GT recently, I had also inquired with the dealer aboutwhether Subie would be making an AWD minivan anytime soon. They told methat there was absolutely nothing in the works. I was interested inreplacing my 96 Blazer with an Odyssey, but I hate the interior so much thatI am stalling to see if Subie might come out with something. I'll wait tosee if Honda updates the interior for 2001.
subaru van : Umm, if they wanted little sardine cans for taxis they would have boughta Subaru. I drive a Crown Vic and a HUGE moster extended van. I have hadno problen getting the van around in LA and NYC. I find the Subaru driversthere most courteous to me. It takes some skill to drive large vehiclesbut luckily I have it. <GRIN> Sounds like your taxi has a zillion miles on it and cheap tires. My own tuna boat has "Z" rated BFGs and a traction lock rear diff, if youknow what that means. It will corner hard enough to make most people puke.It is not a Subaru, it does things a Subaru couldn't dream of, like take 6people and all their luggage on a two week 2000 mile vacation. Right! The Subaru is such a great car. The cops are all clamouring forthem for highspeed pursuits. Hmmmm, did you ever think that perhaps something is worn out on yourzillion mile taxi? I wonder how a Subaru would hold up to that daily use? Don't suppose it has anything to do having the cheapest possble tires onyour taxi? The tires slip so the car sucks. right? Ever take any coursesin deductive reasoning? I didn't think so!
subaru van : Hmmmm, 40 cops and 20 taxi drivers haven't broken it off so far, itcan't be that bad. I had my own taxi business at one time, so I know youguys really try. That little lever in front of the signal switch will lower the thesteering wheel. Cool huh? Now you will be able to see the gear selectionin spite of your short stature. I wouldn't know about the headlight knob. My Crown Vic headlights arecompletely automatic, they turn on and off according to light conditions. Does your Subaru do that? Talk about "designed by morons from the stoneages." TIRES, TIRES, TIRES, understand?4 wheel drive is my hobby, yet my Crown Vic will handle any snow or iceconditions Canada can throw at it. Why? Darn good tires and a limited slip differential.Neither my summer or winter tires are bothered by rain and it doesn't needthe additional complication of AWD. And before you think I don't know whatAWD can do, my van is AWD. I can assure you that you could not follow theplaces I can go with that van in your Subaru or carry the same number ofpassengers and cargo in two Subarus. But it is wide and long.
subaru van : Really? Push the little joystick on the side or grab the bar on thefront of the passenger seat (if you have the police buckets) and the seatswill go so far back my long legs stick straight out. Stop slouching inyour seat! Have you found where all the controls are yet? Sounds like pre-concieved notions, did you want to be proved wrong? Yeah, those thousands of high earning older folks don't have a clue do they?You'd think a long lifetime of driving experience would cause them to comeup with the same priorities as you? By the way, my Crown Vic topped out at125 mph in stock condition, I guess your Subaru is faster than that, eh? Oh yes, and it will easily get in the mid-20s for fuel milage at 70 mphwhile hauling my 6 person family in comfort. What does your Subaru get forfuel mileage? 34mpg? Great! Only I'd need 2 of them, I guess that is only17mph to haul 6 people. Heck my diesel fulltime 4x4 van can get that andit can carry 15 people. And drive through 2 feet of snow......while towing a Subaru!
