Well, I've been converted. After looking at a Foresters for the last 3 years, I finally took the plunge. I bought a 2013 2.5X Premium, Manual Transmission. This is the first time I actually got exactly what I wanted on a new car, right down to the color (sage). I am a harpist (I play the Irish lever harp) and my car serves as the "band transport" for the Irish trio I'm in, so cargo loading and space was a must.
I had been putting off getting an SUV for a long time, mostly because I refuse to give up driving manual transmission. Thankfully, Subaru still makes MT here in America. (Don't get me started on this insipid idea that all Americans want automatic only. Most manufacturers seem to go with this thinking.)
I will be taking a road trip for Christmas with my two dogs and I'm looking forward to getting lots of great information from all the forum members!
