I bought this Forester used several months ago.
I have driven 8500 miles.
Here are a few observations:
It is obvious the car is well built and, if maintained, will be around a long time.
The mileage is fair.
Hwy is 26.2
City is 21.5
The all wheel drive gives a nice feel in tight turns and in wet weather.
The engine has some pep, but I do not use it as a sports car.
The interior is somewhat spartan or utilitarian.
It will not be mistaken for a luxury car.
It is all functional.
The seats are comfortable, but not for extremenly long travels.
