This is my first time owning a Subaru. I recently purchased a 2010 Forester Satin White with Premium package and M/T. I had also considered a RAV4 and the Outback, but preferred the Forester. Back in '98 I came close to buying an Outback, but it didn't work out. What I have viewed in the forum so far looks great, all the information and positive feedback from forum members is awesome. I hope I will be able to contribute as well.
