Overkill

I test drove the 2013 Outback yesterday along with the Forester. Both were nice. Still not 100% convinced they are big enough, but I like the heated seats, the moonroof is HUGE, we can get a boat hitch and kayak carrier easily enough..and I can get manual transmission (not available on the Toyota Highlander!)
Anyway...
I have gotten:
an email from the guy who I test drove with
an email from the manager of the dealership
a phone call from the guy I test drove with
a phone call from Subaru about the dealership (doing a survey-ish info gathering)
Its been 26 hours since I was there!

Ummm, 1 more and I will tell them IF they dont back off, I'll go somewhere else.

Your money, you buy whatever your heart desires :-) I stay with my Highlander (i mentioned it before I'm a Toyota fan) dealerships are gonna bother you until; you curse them out, or buy a car.

I WISH they made the highlander in a manual transmission, but they dont... :(
It LOOKS like the perfect car... but alas, I dont even know how to drive an automatic. LOL

IT's easy.. gear shift in D and off you go ;)

I can't do manual...... thankfully fire trucks are now automatic, except for a dinosaur or two still floating around the county.

I swear these companies are their own worst enemies at times. That is far too pushy!
