our friends had a renault laguna 2006 whose engine gave problems every month. They sold it to buy supreme japanese reliability (toyota corolla), only to have its engine destroyed and have the short block replaced, after waiting for some weeks without a car.Great idea- Toyotas are perfect- never seen one in a shop.
I hear you as I “lease” my wife a 19’ F Pace.Possibly, at least compared to a Jaguar... ;-)
Well as I have posted before, it is terrible to have car suck like that, but my father is on his second Forester , third suby, and never had much issues .We have a 2018 Crosstrek (which we love) and a 2014 Forester (which I don't love). My BIL had a 2014 Forester that was an absolute lemon. Ours, at 86,000 miles, has had more major repairs than I ever expected from a Subaru. I'm ready to trade the '14 Forester for a new car but am a bit skittish about the '20 Forester. Consumer Reports said Subarus had only average reliability and it's been trending down. We had a Prius that went >200k miles with NO major repairs. But we need a small SUV for vacation travel.
Question for this community: Would you buy another Forester? If not, what do you recommend that's reliable, good mileage, good resale value, great safety features?

Interesting you seem to be ignoring that the OP is exactly one of those.The sarcastic replies and the one off horror stories won't change that.
What you seem to be referencing, and getting defensive about, was my response to a request for an alternative option to Subaru that meets those metrics. Take a step back, look at the big picture.first model year vehicle problems. Everyone has em. Some of the issues sound like a problem with a dealer not willing to take the time to address them as they should.
No some people just think they're actually going to get back at the big mean corporate bully and influence people.Sorry..I smell troll
