I've had my 2013 Forester for about 7 months now and so far, so good.
It isn't the fastest, most luxurious, or most tech savvy car on the market, but what it is, is a great all around car.
In todays market there are not many CUVs you can run to the store in one minute, and then the next go out in the back country.
This is what made this vehicle so impressive to me being a Wyoming native who very well may do both of those activities in the same day.
This little crossover is just so well rounded and good at so many things it makes me happy everytime I drive it.
The interior does have some cheap materials, and the stock mud guards are terrible, but other than that I'm happy with my foz.
Bluetooth audio and phone, moon roof, ground clearence and AWD
Better interior plastics/fabrics, better wheel arch/mud guard design, needs manual gearbox with back up camera
