I love my Forester. I average 25 mpg in city driving. My complaints are: I can't find it in the parking lot as readily as my old car, which was mica blue and stood out as opposed to my navy blue; and the front seat is not as comfortable as I would prefer on long trips (500+ miles one way). Took out backseat headrests as they blocked my rear vision somewhat. Overall am extremely pleased with my Forester. Highly recommend it.
Size overall. Rubber mat in rear. Ease in parking. Body design. Driver's left foot rest. Horn sounds like a horn!
Updated exterior color selection! More car-like driver's seat. Gas tank filler on driver's side of car for safety/convenience. Goldish color background of odometer area makes it hard to read sometimes.
