What so Subaru is 5 or 8 years late, as usual?

Found this though.

My customer were looking for a 7 seater, I said wait for the Tribeca. Well that was a joke for a 7 seater, most ended up with a Volvo 70 series.

That van does not look very big.

See 3rd post down. Looks like it was a hoax. If we were getting a Van in 07 we would hear about it by now.

If Subaru could produce a minivan that could compete with the chrysler minivans, I would get one...


You need a lot more room when you have kids than anything Subaru currently offers.

It's too bad, because I think Subaru could do well in that market segment if they stick to the basics and provide a solid AWD drivetrain.

I think this is just for the home market, in Japan. At least that is what the second link said.

This info is incorrect.

Check out NASIOC's news & rumors forum. The minivan is meant for japanese markets only.

I agree. Trouble is, Subaru has already stated they're moving up-market. Too bad, because I like their stuff. Not for over $30K, though. The kind of stuff they were making from, I don't know, ~'78 to ~'94 or so is what made the company here and now they're abandoning it.

Figures. Japan-only or not, the Subaru we once loved is gone, replaced by GM's money-hungry corporate kiss-rump roast attitude.

Guess I'll hafta find a new brand in a few years.

Hi,

I don't get it. I thought the Forester was their mini SUV. Why do they need another one? The 2006 was even revamped with a new front end and more horsepower.

Bye, Capri

Ooops, I thought it said new mini SUV when they already have the Forester.

Bye, Capri.
