I love some of the descriptions in the specifications section.

This is subaru's clever marketing scheme.

What's funny is that It's an old Mitsubishi Lancer.

The funny thing for me is, I own a Tempo and a lot of the stuff they poke fun at is exactly why I enjoy the Tempo. It's dove grey (not quite white, not quite not white).. blue interior, zero flash, no logos, completely forgettable. "what kind of car was that? uhh... some... grey sedan.. "

I don't need or want to be noticed, I do in fact just want to get from A to B as uneventfully and forgettably as possible. The exciting stuff in my life is people i share life with, myself and what i'm doing, not what material possessions i'm seen with. The car's just a utility, like a toaster or lawn mower.

It comes in beige and grey. Why do so many people buy medium dark grey cars? That color blends in with the highway surface so people are less likely to see a car in theyre blind spot or in the corner of their eye. It doesnt stand out from the lane behind like normal colors. Even worse when a really expensive small short sports car is that color.
