    My neighbor still has the Venza they bought new... Maybe 10 years old?

    Did you get a good deal? Be sure to come back and share!

    When we bought the Outback in 2015, we briefly toyed with the idea of getting a Venza. The Toyota and Subaru dealers were next to each other, so on the way to test drive the OB, we swung through the Toyota dealer for a look. Drove past one - the wife took one look at it and said "nope".

    That might be the first Subaru ever sold on the basis of styling. :laughing:

    I always called the Venza a Camry wagon - it wasn't bad looking at all. New one is kind of derpy, as one expects from the brand these days. Gotta have that C-pillar beltline upkick for "character", "dynamism" and to reduce visibility for a driver demographic who needs all the help they can get.

    If it hadn't priced out at $10k more, we both liked the Volvo XC70.

    The Outback has aged well, in my eyes. The new iteration isn't all that different looking.

    I saw a copy of the 2021 E-class dealer ordering guide - the "luxury" trim package (traditional grille, hood star) is being dropped for the facelift. Maybe this car will be the one I buy - I greatly enjoy the hood ornament.

    I noticed what seemed like a Saab/MB/Audi junk yard car lot in Borrego Springs desert and unforgiving sun. A few of the MB's were thought worthy of a car cover, but the sun beats down on everything, and that hood ornament is usually the first breaking point in a car cover, and most of them were sticking out as it creates a stress/tension point in the car cover, which is where it'll fail first under the hot sun.

    On that note, I cover my old car, and remove the hood ornament before covering it. Not to preserve the cover (which isn't very tight), but to preserve the hood ornament spring - I've had a floppy hood ornament before, it is irritating, and somehow I remember it being a pain to replace.
