I have responded directly to Paul Taylor and intended to CC Birding-Aus but that part of the plan failed.
Paul has been in contact with me so that part worked ok.

So here is what I wrote to Paul:
(Note: If anyone wants to comment on what I have written I suggest you correspond directly with me rather than clogging up the system with no-interest-to-anyone-else waffle.


If you would like to know why I, as a Subaru Forester owner for the last 5 
years, would only
recommend one (especially a manual gearbox model) to my worst enemy contact me 
directly at

For the rest of you Birding-Ausers that really care: I still own it because I 
can't afford to trade
it in!
And Toyota has spoiled everything by making the RAV4 all-wheel-drive "on 
demand" in the latest model
instead of "full-time" as in the previous models.
Honda has already proven in the CR-V that "on-demand" systems do not really 
work very well in this
class of vehicle.

Sorry about all the non-birding c**p but it does seem that this topic has been 
approved as suitable
for this forum.

Cheers from a not very cheerful

I'm about to buy a Subaru Forester XS, but I'm having trouble
deciding on manual vs. automatic transmission.  I'm leaning
towards the latter for convenience, but would appreciate any
feedback on real world birding experience.
