I've owned Fords, Chevies, Chryslers, VW's, Volvos, Hondas, BMW's, Toyota's but finally bought a 2008 Subaru Forester LL Bean with 15K miles on the ODO. Why did I do that you ask? Because I never had a Subaru. The wife has claimed it and promptlly named it "Beanie Baby". Got 26 mpg around town on the first tank of fuel from the 2.5 liter non turbo engine. Seems like a pretty neat car. We now look forward to retirement and travel.
