When I started looking for a replacement for my larger SUV, to be honest, Subaru was not one I had considered. A family member suggested I take a look. After test driving, I was sold.. My first was a 2017, base model. It handled our PNW weather like a champ! My second Forester has eyesight and some other features that are terrific. I feel safe and confident with my family in the car and will 100% buy another one.
