I am really torn. this will be our first subaru. Our only requirements were great crash test ratings, fuel economy, and AWD so the forester seems to be it. We can buy a new 2009 2.5X for $21,164 or a used 2009 2.5X premium PZEV. We like the extras in the used. It has 25,800 miles on it for $19,900. It has a roof rack, tinted windows, moon roof, like the exterior color better and other little extras that the new one does not. I thought we were decided but i have some concerns. the used is affected by the recall and has not been fixed yet. Will it really lower the gas mileage? Also, it was rear ended. car fax says moderately but car fax also says no structural/frame damage. Any concerns with that? we have never bought a used vehicle that had a recall or the was in a moderate accident. It was a fleet vehicle and has been serviced right around every 5,000 miles. We do get the remainder of the 3yr 36,000 B2B and the 5yr, 60000 PT warranty supposedly. They would have to show proof of that first. Any thoughts?
