Hi, new to the site and not sure if this had been started yet, but as a very proud ownder of a 99 Outback, I am a little annoyed by the introduction of the Ford Freestyle wagon. It looks virtually identical to the Outback, down to the contrasting grey fenders and bumper, factory roof rack, and windows. Isn't there some kind of copyright infringement going on here? Is it okay to buy this car instead of the Subaru because maybe some people dind't want to buy a Japanese car? Well there is a difference, which is so typical for american cars, it's bigger, what's worse is it's classified as an SUV (how does that work?) which means different tax breaks.
Are all the car companies going to start jumping on the band wagon (er station wagon band wagon) now?
