Thanks. Sense they're more common where it gets really cold makes these features

Nice pick up John. It looks to be really clean based on the car's history. Treat it well and it will last a while. Nice future plans as well.

Re: Jon's BH Outback

Wait, it has 2 moonroofs? Damn, you baller. I typically don't like subarus, but think the 1st gen impreza, older legacy and outbacks are great cars. And it looks really well taken care of!
One thing I don't like though.. only 25 mpg? Is that normal for those cars?

Welcome to AWD. But you won't be thinking about that when you're dominating whatever kind of snowy road conditions you get down there. haha
