My name is Nathaniel currently living in Los Angeles. I was leasing a 2015 Lexus and when the lease ended this month so I had to get a new vehicle. My wife is currently leasing a 2015 Subie Crosstrek and I liked driving her car more than mine. Been doing a lot of research on Subies and trying to find the right fit. Ultimately, we decided that leasing is a waste of money and would prefer to own and not have a car payment. So, after much deliberation, research and waaaaaaaiting for the right deal to come along I ended up purchasing a 2007 Forester 2.5X LL Bean Edition yesterday with 43k miles on it and couldn't be more excited to be a part of the "club" and to no longer have a car payment! Woohoo!
Anyways, really looking forward to being a part of this community and learning the in's and out's of maintaining this pretty new (to me) vehicle and hopefully driving it for the next decade.
