My friend got a new ride

0920-outback

It’s tough buying a car. It always feels like we’re on the precipice of a vehicle with the perfect set of features. Everything’s a concept (or out already in Europe).

My friend’s old ride was falling apart and it was difficult to maintain it long enough until the new Outback arrived in dealerships.

I can say with confidence that this new model bests the old in every way, and it was solid before. Subaru is less daring with their design language these days, but it makes for a vehicle that’s going to last a good long time.

He picked it up this Saturday and the engine will likely never be this clean again:
