'morning,
Due to an upcoming divorce, I found that I was going to need a car. Don't get me wrong, I love my F250 diesel, but it's not designed for rush hour in Pittsburgh... So I needed something smaller and more economical for daily use.
I lucked into a used 2002 Forester S in excellent condition, with very low miles (64k) at an incredible price. She's got leather and more gadgets than probably all of my prior vehicles combined (most of which were VW bugs - the real ones, air cooled engine in back). So I'm in the process of making friends with her.

Mike, welcome to the forum. May you come to love your new Subie as much as I do and everyone else here does.

Thanks! I was actually hoping to find one, but didn't expect to. Because they're fairly in demand. :)
My dad actually had one, although that was back in the late '70s. Forget the model, but it was one of the little station wagons. It would take everything that was thrown at it and handle it all. It finally died when it got rear ended.

Back in the 70s, they didn't really have model names. It was just a Subaru and your choice was the DL or GL wagon, or sedan, or Coupe...

I had a mid 80s version of the DL four wheel drive wagon and it did just take about anything that was thrown at it. At 320 Thousand Miles, a head gasket blew, and would have cost over $1,200 for the repair. I had purchased the car at an auction for only $700 so I just could not justify that repair.

I kind of miss that little wagon...
