Our second Subaru and the last. The maintenance requirements are expensive compared to a Suburban we once had and a Tahoe and a Yukon XL. At 30000 miles expect to pay between 400 and 700 bucks for this Forester. The 4 speed auto trans is a joke.
Visibility is excellent. Gas mileage is also great. I think that covers it.
Upgrade the transmission, build it so spark plugs and brake fluid does not need replacing at 30,000 miles.
