"GREAT car overall.
BUT: very difficult to change spark plugs (even with special specific tool made by subaru for changing them). Impossible to get to; might be faster to pull the engine to do it. Takes about 4 hours.
ALSO: the car gets HORRIBLE in-town gas mileage! On the highway it gets maybe 26-28 mpg; but in town averages 11-12 mpg (even driving super conservatively). I have taken it to multiple shops and tried everything. I am told there is nothing wrong with it."
"This is the best vehicle I have owned so far. It has enough room for the things I need and is very comfortable at the same time. I recently moved and used my Forester for most of the move and even managed to fit a full sized couch in the back. For New York weather the heated leather seats are ideal!"
