My '07 Subaru Outback just died from a thrown rod and I need to replace it. It was perfect for lugging around my clothes racks, canopy, and tie-dye during craft fair season, but I couldn’t take it on the beach during our Outer Banks trips because it had AWD, not 4WD, and the clearance was too low.
I’m looking for something about the size of the 07 Subaru Outback but with 4WD and higher clearance. Used, between $10K and $20K. Preliminary research has turned up some suggestions (below), would appreciate your thoughts, thanks!
