Do you think the 2014 Forester, with cvt, is a 200k car? I do not currently own a Subaru but want one bad. I like the manual transmission, but my wife insists on an automatic. We started our marriage with a Subaru and 31-years later we are interested in the Forester. I have a Civic with 205,000 and a S-10 with 208,000. When I find what I like, I tend to keep it. Sorry for the long post, but I am concerned about the cvt, and the cost of ownership!
