I have had my '03 Forester for 7 months
and 17,000 miles and am more pleased
with it now then when I purchased it!
It gets 24-25 mpg with varied driving.
My wife has not wrested it away from
me, but I think she would swap her
Solara for the Forester if I offered.
With all the crash test data on the
car, and my experiences to date, The
premium for Subaru is really worth it!
