My 3rd Subaru, but first Forester. Never bought before because it was too small.
I am 6' tall, not huge, but this is the first Forester model I feel comfortable both in front and back.
My teenage boys are very comfy in the backseat, and they are my height.
My only complaint is the gas mileage.
I get 20-21 mpg when the local EPA MPG is 24.
That's a big difference, and I am not driving like a leadfoot !
I ease off on gas and coast to stop signs and red lights, and that's the only way I got close to 21mpg.
My much larger outback gets about 19-20 locally, so only a 1 mpg improvement with a smaller Subaru.
Spacious in front and back sets !
Moonroof is huge, like driving a convertible.
There is a blindspot for the driver looking over his right shoulder,
across the middle of the car, as I do when I back out of my driveway every single day. Do not have same issue on my outback, this need to be addressed in a future model.
