We live over a 1200 foot high mountain.

We don't know from one day to the next what our weather will be in the winter. The Subaru is wonderful. This past winter the regular road was closed and we decided to take the summer only road. There was 6 inches of snow on the road and the Subaru went through it just fine. My daughter is in the Air Force and we are looking to help her buy a new Forester. You never know where you will be and it will get you through. It holds to the road just superbly. I drove 18 wheelers in all weather across the U.S. and my Subaru is just as fantastic to drive.
I love the way the car holds the road and just grabs on when there is added moisture. If I could I would buy everyone I know a Subaru Forester.
Gas mileage could be a little better. We get 25 MPG. I have gotten 30 MPG on the Interstate and keeping the sped about 60 MPG.
