Outback / Re: 2018 Outback front door windows acoustic, can fit to 2017?

It also seems that the new 2018 is built on the new Global Platform? Many changes will then go more than skin deep?

Certain punctuation marks like the acute accent or letters wit a caret on them etc. causes the forum to cut of posts. Maybe some unicode or ASCII incompatibility or something....

So for some reason the full message wont display, so this continues form the first post.....

SSA can't confirm it either way, I just don't think can be bothered to find out. The dealership also keeps promising to find out but don

Many sources say the 2018 Outback is quieter than 2017. Particularly with regard to wind noise from the mirror at highway speeds. I have a 2017 and although a nice car it is very noisy at highway speeds. My 2006 rav4 is quieter, seriously!

I have driven the 2018 and it does seem very quiet with very little mirror wind noise, partly because Subaru finally changed the mirror design. Also apparently due to acoustic front door glass windows. The question is are they really are fitted? SSA can

Toyota has great resale value if you can hang onto them long enough before they are stolen  ;D. You will get more car for your money if you look at a Honda, yes not greatest resale but safer than Toyota, perhaps more reliable and low theft risk.

That was my thought. Another alternative is a Corolla, but Toyota has an insane ability to hold on to resale value, whereas Honda does not. Thanks for the assistance

Cheers,

Ja, second hand from that era I would also rather go Honda and petrol.

I'm willing to take a hit on capability. Everywhere i have been, i also went in a Mk1 Ford Focus while towing a trailer. It has never been fully loaded while i've owned it, apart from when i moved house. The only capability i really need is a tow hitch for my mountain bike rack.

I've seen a couple of Ford Focus diesels or Honda Civic petrols in the price range i am looking in, from around 2008. I'm leaning towards the Hondas, as i've always had a crap experience with Ford dealers

Just under 10 is decent I would say. Nothing in the price and use range will beat that.

Or go to a 1.4ish petrol hatchback and then get 15 kmpl, but lose the space and capability.

Whatever you will gain in fuel consumption in a similar class car to a Foz you will lose somewhere else such as in price or capability.
