Subaru forester?

Anyone have one? My wife needs a new car. She doesn't want an suv or "anything big" but we're in Wisconsin so I want her to get something 4wd/awd. I had an outback for a rental car once & was actually really impressed.

Re: Subaru forester?

we just sold my wife's fwd compass and purchased a 2010 forester limited. so far my wife LOVES it!!!! We too have only ever hear good things about subaru. everyone that we know that has one said they will never buy anything elst. my wife and I compared many smaller suv's and she narrowed it down to the Rav4 and the forester. we ended up getting a decent deal on the forester limited and for the price, we got more options. heated leather, panoramic moon roof, headted windshiled (for wipers) all power, 6 disc changer, 4wd, and so far she has been getting an average of 26 mpg.

go for it, from what I could tell the forester is a step up from the outback. it's more "SUV" like and the outback is more "station wagon" like. so it depends on your tast. However, you can get the outback with a 6 cylinder.........

it took us a while to actually find a used NEWER forester because it seems no one wants to get rid of them?

I agree, I like the Forester better than the outback myself. And if it were me driving it, I'd get the manual trans too.

Wifey is very brand-focused so I'm not sure I can convince her of it but we'll see. Also want her to look at the legacy - that's closer to what she has now except that it's awd..
