October was the first month in years that the Outback outsold the Forester.
Both are up and doing well, though.

I have the 2.5 with the CVT and now have 2,000KM on it. I have driven it in hilly terrain and find there is enough power and it is quiet enough. You do not feel the upshifts at all, but do feel the downshifts at the lower shift points(this is not too bad but not as smooth as the acceleration). The paddle shifters work very well and you do not even have to move the shifter over to M mode. This feature I use for braking lots. I feel it is a good pairing of engine and transmission. At 120KMPH you are barely registering 2,000 RPM on the tac. Today drove it thru snow in northern Canada and it tracked very well. Overall very happy with the car. It is the quietest vehicle I have every owned!
