I love the Forester. It really meets my needs. I live in a large city where parking is limited and I find the ease of handling and parking to be wonderful. The 2006 has more leg room in width than my previous Foresters. Also the console and dash are in a better position. I had a bad car accident in 2001 (kid on a cell phone) and the Forester saved my life. I don't know if I will ever own any other car! It takes regular fuel, a plus for me. I have never had problems with any of my Foresters and don't expect any now with the new one. I didn't replace my second Forester; it's still in the family.
