About to replace the wife's '07 CR-V with a 2014 Forester. New design, but the non-turbo is the same 2.5L they've always run so I'm comfortable with that. I'd prefer the turbo, but every one I see in inventory has every single option box checked adding about $4K in useless expense. Since it's a new model and they need to flood the lots, methinks a special order (it'd be my 4th Subaru from the same dealer, so I know I can get it done) might take a few months.
I'd rather wait for the "custom order" model with exact features you want to. All of our current family cars have the exact features we want and no useless crap (for example, there are no "running boards" on both our SUVs) that we don't... The longest time we had to wait was a couple of months. Of course, they were not from Subaru, so that's probably why...
