    Who on earth would want to drive such an ugly unrepairable uncomfatable thing.......They are all right offs once the warranties have passed.....so many are so uncomfortable to drive as well....

    Isn't it called a crossover because it's a hybrid of a van and a sedan?  The auto manufacturers were trying to appeal to both audiences.

    Subaru is a cool name. It's the Japanese word for what we call the Pleiades. One of my grand daughters is named Maia.

    OK.   That's cool.  Most of them are just made-up gibberish.  I would give you Asker's pick but it isn't offered on here right now for some glitch reason.
