I bought a ForesterX 5 speed in
October. I loved the zip and fun
driving the Forester. On Jan 20, my
husband lost control and at about 65
mph went head on into a jersey
barrier. Front airbags deployed. The
car was totaled. My husband walked
away with sore arms (from the air bag)
and my father, in the front passenger
seat, had only a seat belt bruise and
a jammed thumb. I am convinced the
Forester saved thier lives. It is the
main reason I bought another. I
upgraded the interior in this one, and
did switch to automatic.
Ground clearance. Visibility.
The cupholders need to be rearranged.
My remote entry seems to be finicky.
