Our Forester is my 2nd Subaru, with the first being a Subaru Brat in 1982... Anyway, back to the review. Our Forester is great. The only problem we had was rather LARGE when we first got the car. There was a problem with the Front Differential. Luckily I noticed the strange noise that was occurring at 60MPH+ on the freeway early into our ownership experience. We took it back to Carmax, and they ended up fixing it, to the tune of over $3K! Thank God we weren't on the hook for this repair. Other than this, the car has been absolutely bulletproof! It handles great, and we get over 25MPG on average per every single tankful. The car is a gem. I would definitely recommend buying a Subaru, and I would definitely recommend buying your Subaru from Carmax! This was our 3rd vehicle purchased from Carmax.
