I'm worried that the nav system will be obsolete / need an upgrade etc. so am opting for the Ltd w/o LLB. We will do an aftermarket portabel nav system (added bonus that we can take it with us to rentals, etc.).
Otherwise I like what the Bean looks like. I don't think you can go wrong with either one.

They've offered an update for the system in the Tribeca, so they should do the same for other models.
I have a portable and those work fine, too.

I finally went for the Harvest Gold LTD. I liked the LLB but already had a NAV system and didn't feel it was worth the extra $. I've had the car 2 months and really love it.
It has a much better ride than my '05 2.5i. Not a single rattle !

Congrats, the LTD is already pretty well loaded up.

You can buy tint film at any auto parts store and then apply it yourself.
I hear they use baby shampoo, water, and a squeegee. And a utility knife with a sharp blade.

You can also use the built in cover to stop sun from coming in.
If it has that metalic specles on it then you won't be able to apply tint properly to it.
#10 of 12 2.5i Limited v. 3.0R

I'm torn between the 2.5i limited and the 3.0R. The 2.5 realy crawls, while the 3.0 is smooth and powerful + the LL Bean option. I'm wondering if the slow 2.5 is a problem for anyone. The 0 to 60 time is a full second slower than my Prius. I live in Los Angeles and want to be sure the car can handle a full load going up mountain roads and can merge easily into freeway traffic.

I've survived 5000 miles so far in my 08 2.5 OB on the Chicago tollways without noticing a problem merging and I have a WRX also for comparison. Just keep it in sportshift mode or use the manumatic if you want. Your mileage will go to heck though, esp if you had a Prius before!

Get the PZEV model if you go for an Outback, which only comes with the 2.5l. The warranty covers your emissions equipment for 100k.
