2000 Subaru Outback Limited

We have a...bad history with Subarus. The first Subaru we bought was a white 2000 Impreza. It was a great car, but when a pickup truck rear-ended it in 2004 our insurance company said it couldn't be fixed. We took the money and bought a 1997 Subaru Legacy, which was a great car. In the Summer of 2005 that car got rear-ended and again was totaled by the insurance company. After looking for another Subaru for a few months we bought the Scion XB and kept looking.

Knaddison Cars - About This Site

I love cars. Nikki...not so much. But she's willing to play along.

A few years ago we kept track of our mileage for a litle while but never really got into it. Now I think it's time to really give it a shot. So, here's what this site provides (or will provide):

1) A list of cars that we own or owned.
2) Mileage and maintenance information for those cars
3) A blog of stories about the cars and thoughts on the automotive industry
4) Photos of our cars

About the Knaddisons

2005 Scion xB - First Generation

This car was purchased as a replacement to a 1985 Saab 900s. The Saab was our utility car for driving around town while we also had a Subaru as our "mountain/snow car." In my opinion, this first generation Scion XB is the best one. It was only sold from 2004 to 2006 at which point the second generation was introduced: faster and with a limited slip front differential option, but lower fuel efficiency, less visibility, and rounded corners which make the style less recognizable.

Why We Like It:

1989 Lexus LS 400 - One of the First 300 Lexus

When my parents decided a snow car was more important than a sedan they purchased a Toyota Highlander and tried to trade in their 1989 Lexus LS400. The dealer offered $1,500. This...was obviously insufficient. So, they offered it to me and I of course accepted. Even after 20 years the car is a dream to drive.
