The comparison had to do with the ability to climb hills.
You want to make an argument here, as you obviously feel some need to "defend" your turbo, which isn't under "attack" I merely said my X model didn't feel sluggish, as some 4's do. I believe I stated I liked Turbo's, and recognized nothing beat the feeling of extra power. But it is all realitive, since the non-turbo vehicles I own can wipe most turbos.
People looking here for information usually like comparisons, therefore my comment. If someone is looking for an affordable car, and might think they must buy a turbo if living in the Inter mountain West, IMO they would like to know Subaru's regular Boxer 4 will handle the hills better than most 4's....without the extra maintenance of a turbo, and the need to buy Premium Unleaded.

Yep, that's why I provided one without confusing the issue by throwing in totally unrelated models. I'm happy for you that you have a Viper that can "wipe most turbos" but fail to see what that has to do with the forum topic
I could just as easily argue that it appears you feel it necessary to "defend" your non-turbo even though I agreed that it performs adequately when climbing. I also agreed that the turbo comes with a financial penalty (both premium gas and lower mpg). In fact I tell anyone who cares to ask that the Forester X provides the best value for the money of any small SUV/CUV

I can't tell you how much I dislke this splitting. Edmunds will lose out, as will the owners. We often have several issues that need answers and this will create posting and response inefficiencies.
I was hoping that what happened in the Mazda board would not happen in Subie land. This is NOT improving the Forums.

I agree. Just when I had everything that interests me set up, I have to go and re-do it all.
