    I know. It's the dumbest thing Subaru ever did. Let's just say Subaru has always been several years behind the "trends" when it comes to comfort and convenience. With them, it's always been about safety, preventing accidents before they happen, and getting in, through, and out of rough terrains.

    They have always had the worst stereo systems in the industry, except for their 30th Anniversary Special Outback, but there weren't too many of those.

    Ha, so true. My 2001 Infiniti has drink holders situated in such a way that the engineers HAD to be thinking, "I defy you to put anything larger than a thimble in here." Plus, I think they're made of Play-Doh and fortified with Elmer's Glue.
