    Okay, I'm not interested in a new SUV. However, I watched the ad the other night, liking what I saw from the rear, the sides, and then...that hideous front end showed its ugly face.

    It looks oddly like an Alfa Romeo grill that's way to large for that size vehicle.

    It is a Subaru, so it will likely run like crazy for many long years while still being...butt ugly.

    "stuffed pig" comes to mind whenever I see that. What were they thinking? Hell it makes the Honda Ridgeline look almost good...

    Im glad im not the only one. When I saw that thing, I told myself it was "uglier than a bucket of butthole"

    They grow on you, especially after you've sat in one and the round cockpit envelops you and you start fiddling with gadgets.

    The horseshoe grill is Subaru's new corporate face. I kinda like it, especially on the STi, gives it some Italian flavor. The B9 Tribeca looks nice, haven't seen one up close, just going the other way on the road, but they look great from the pictures I've seen. They need more power, though, I don't think 250 horses are gonna cut it with a load onboard.

    I'm a subaru fan but the b9 is hideous looking. The 2006 Imprezas are odd looking too, but they grow on you.

    seriously, the older I get, the less I like the looks (and fancy tech **** for that matter) of new cars. I'm learning why the old guys yearn for the "relics"
