the B9 will always have a soft spot with me......awesome vehicle to drive, quiet, spacious, nice sounding engine etc etc.

Honda Varadero

Hers:
2012 Fortuner 3.0D4-D 4x4...don't ask

Steve do you have a lead on one? Please share.

It is a much heavier car than our Foresters. The 3.0 was found to be a bit too weak in power to weight stakes. That's the main reason they changed to 3.6. Power is back up there where it belongs. If you are looking for something with all the bells and whistles then this surely has it all.

I love it, but believe it will no longer be produced and already scrapped from the US catalogues.

i still want one, hopefully we will find one real soon.
