MJU for the un-Subaru. Not only is it an absolute slap in the face for the Subaru philosophy, it's the beginning of the end for one of my favorite marques as they soften up their line-up and go upmarket. On top of all that, it's ugly...I saw my first one on the road in Honolulu and it was just ghastly.

I give it an uncool. I have no doubt in its mechanical ability and the purpose it was set out to achieve (carry shit and people with shit) but it does it in an extremely ugly way not seen since the likes of the Pontiac Aztek.

Uncool because the interior is nice. But I hate everything about how it stands and looks on the outside, severe bleh on the part of Subaru

Dunno if it is as ugly or uglier than that Isuzu SUV that came out a few years ago.

Uncool. I'm sure it's good at something. Because looks, it obviously isn't good at.

I saw the commercial for it. It showed all the other SUVs it pulled up beside fade away into dust or break down and grow cob webs. One thing I noticed was most of the commercial you only see the side or back of the B9 and only one shot shows the front. Heh.
