Don't worry. Either Toyota (Scion) or Subaru will get my business eventually. I just have to work out the details and the timing.

I hope they do another Monogram run soon. If they do I might just bite the bullet and get it. But yeah, I wouldn't think anybody would trade up simply based on these minimal changes.

So I wonder what they're going to do about the premium option with navigation. Will it be the same unit as before or a new/different model? The old one seemed fine to me. Still better than Subaru's.
