The Toyota Echo we had prior to our current car was a Hida hitch we had very good results with it over a 6 year period. Though not recommended we once over loaded it at double its rating for a short trip on a side road we are pleased at how well it worked.

Our current hitch is custom design to meet the car needs works great but had to be repainted yesterday as paint did not fair well on dirt roads. Flowers do not always grow in the most accessible spots

Looks nice and beefy. I like the new Outback. If it came in A diesel, I would buy it today.

It does... But not in this country! 2 liter H4 turbodiesel. 150 HP @ 3,600 RPM. 170 pounds of torque from 1,800 to 2,400 RPM. 37 MPG "combined.". That's US MPG, not imperial.

Wow thats 41.6 mpg Canadian Gal impressive mileage on the Outback
Corolla comes stock with 1.8 L @ 132 hp or 2.4 L @ 158 hp the extra hp costs in mileage.
The hitch on the Corolla was expensive and it lacks the Outbacks off road ability; in short very impressive mileage and great value on the outback!

I have been eagerly waiting for a subbie diesel. My theory is since demand is there , the government is killing it. Small diesels make to much sense. I thought about buying a Subaru and shipping a diesel over and put it in myself. I was also thinking about a Jetta Sportwagon. I ultimately decided to refurbish a 5speed Volvo 240 wagon. If i keep the speed down, I get as much as 32.4mpg. I am hoping for better with LRR tires. I love Subaru's although I wish they were long enough to sleep in. My 240 wagon is a little tight for me and the dog. I have trouble climbing in the back. Once in, I sleep great in it. 77" is more than I need. Still 4x4 would be nice coupled with a diesels better fuel economy.
