Bought this as second forester for our family with teenagers starting to drive. Excellent reliability, not tippy like other SUVs. Only complaint is lack of attractive exterior appearance. Doesnt bother me. About 20mpg city/25 highway with automatic transmission. Looking to get another used forester as my other teens start driving.
Reliability, excellent handling esp. on ice/snow/wet roads, excellent steering/turning radius. Easy for new drivers.
