I just traded in the wife's Rav4 and bought my first non-Toyota. I'm fascinated with the boxer engine and awd setup. Consumer Reports helped me make my decision to buy the Forester. Reliability is the most important to me when I buy...hopefully the Forester was the right decision.

Thanks for having me.

You made the right choice. Toyota is just as good reliability wise in my opinion but Subaru has got more soul. Hope you enjoy
