Always wanted a AWD car. I was impressed with the Forester and I went for it. I'm really happy with the choice.
The handling with the VDC on. Smooth and comfortable ride. Like the sun roof. MPG of mixed driving for me is 25. Can't wait to break it in then take it off-road. Youtube off-road videos make me wonder if the Forester can actually do those things. Visibility from the driver seat is awesome!
