I've seen a few picture like that along with the same story as yours. Hope I never have to test the crash rating of my Forester. As to feeling a bit lady like behind the wheel...and this isn't a bag on the lesbian crowd, but Subaru did run a campaign a few years back marketing the Forester specifically to that persuasion. However, a bigger turbo does tend to make one feel a bit less feminine. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.Nice truck! Nothing wrong with a Ubu. Wife has one for a company car and it saved our asses one fine day last Feb. Not a scratch. I felt a little like Martina Navratilova the first time I drove it, but that feeling quickly passes.
