I've had my Forester for a few weeks and it's been a pleasant experience thus far. Looks nice, rides well and has enough power for my use. The premium trim with the all weather package gives me all the options I need for the Michigan winters I drive in. I can't wait to see how it handles in the snow. Gas mileage is decent for this type of vehicle. I'm averaging 24-25 mpg combined. My only complaint is that there is an annoying rattle in the passenger side front door panel. Not a huge deal, but I thought a $25k Japanese vehicle wouldn't have such an issue.
