Bought my Forester with 15k on it, but it's in perfect condition, inside and out. Moving from a Jeep Commander to the Forester was not difficult as I expected it would be. It's comfy and plenty of room for all I need. I drove it from Sacramento to Seattle and had a blast. Didn't even lose power on the hills and passes. EPA is great for what it is and, though some people have mentioned noise in the cabin, it's nothing to complain about. I love it and when I wear this one down, I'll get another!
Meeting ALL expectations!
2011 Subaru ForesterPaul D - Great Falls, VA01/04/2016
Specifically wanted the safest car we could afford for our teenage daughters to drive. Its build quality, crash test ratings (and real life reputation), and great fuel economy give us peace of mind. The Subaru Forester is also a lot of fun to drive, and ts enormous sunroof gets lots of kudos from their friends (i.e. all the light without the wind of a convertible).
One of the most amazing things about the car is the mileage. After every trip, the miles per gallon used is shown. I cannot say how often it is 34.7 or 30 plus miles per gallon. It was not supposed to be this good according to what was reflected on the window. I am very impressed.
It is also one of the smoothest running vehicles I have ever owned.
