Greetings from a new Forester owner! Not a new Forester, but a new owner. :wink2: I recently purchased a 2009 XT with manual transmission. I was specifically looking for a manual to enable me to tow it 4 wheels down behind our Class A motorhome. And I discovered that manual models were much less available in the used market than automatics. Maybe 1:25? Anyway, I found a clean example with 97k miles that I am very pleased with. As a plus, it already had a nice Roadmaster towbar installed on the front! I have done little to the car since I purchased it other than install a rear Class III hitch with 2" receiver. The hitch is overkill for the towing capacity of the car, but it was less expensive than smaller capacity and it will hold our bike rack very well. We have already towed the car on a couple of trips behind our RV and it has been great. A fun car to drive and perfect for our needs!
