I just purchased a 2010 Forester 2.5X Limited. It replaces my 2000 similarly equipped that had 80,000 miles on it. I finally realized the 2000 was probably going to outlast me and I decided I wanted a new one that I could care for my way. (The old one was purchased used in 2003 right after I retired and was in good shape with 35,000 miles on it, but not cared for the way I'm used to caring for my vehicles. I was a Corvette racer some years back and also built some show cars. I will be using it for general transportation, to haul my bike and to go to races. When I get finished with buffing the paint, this black Forester will look like one of my show cars.
