Sweet! When are you installing a moped rack on the back of your bus?

I think we can fit one or two IN the bus! They're easy to lift, we could just sorta "roll" a moped up the stairwell or just lift it right up to the WC door if needed.

I had a 12' Impreza and man oh man what a HORRIBLE car! The 13' Crosstrek isn't much better. The 12 burned a quart every 1000-1500 miles. The 13 burns half that. Both cars have really noisy clutches and terrible seats that also make noise. IMO these cars are a total fail. Yet Consumer Reports constantly recommends them.
So yeah- I REALLY hate this car. Its killed any enthusiasm I'd ever have for new cars. From now on I'll stick to classics and beaters.

Got the Sube to the dealer today for the recall. When they pulled the engine they called me and confirmed the clutch, pressure plate, and TO bearing need to be replaced.
I KNOW how to drive a manual transmission. So does my wife. This car has 67k miles and needs a new clutch. What a joke!

yeah, currently looking for a deal on whatever pops up.
Pissed at my subaru as usual, but I'm used to that.

Sold the van for $500 less than we paid but we got plenty of use out of it.
