Hello,

After two months of searching, I recently bought my second Forester -- 06 X Premium, Manual Transmission (Champagne Gold Opal), 36,000 miles.

Traded in my '99 S when it hit 105,000 to avoid the considerable cost of changing the belt and both head gaskets (the left side gasket began leaking externally; though there was no oil mixing with the cooling system and it might have gone on that way indefinitely, knowing the sad history of the '99 head gaskets and their nasty habit of blowing, I didn't want to take that chance -- or to drop another grand on the repair.

Of course I love the new one, though there are some things I miss about my '99, like those wonderful little compartments built into every arm rest and the unmistakable boxy shape. And I have a bunch of questions to post to the various forums. Wish I had known about this site when my head gasket first started leaking.
