As a kid my mom owned a Subaru sedan. I have no idea what it was, but it was the late 80s. I'm currently in a Lexus CT200H, which I plan to keep because it's a great car and just works with zero problems. My wife's 2005 Civic still runs fine, but looks like garbage due to Honda's poor paint from that era. We're planning on replacing the Civic with either a new Forester or a 2017 or up version of one. The 2017s can be found for around ~$20k which is very tempting, however, the 2019 is very tempting as well.

As it is, no dealers in town have any 2019 Foresters on the lot, so we're just waiting.

Welcome to the forum from Oregon! :biggrin:

Some members feel Subaru paint is on the thin side. From my personal experience, if you park outside in the sun & not in a garage, figure the clear coat will stat to fail in 10 years. :frown:

@2.5x_sleeper Oh man. I'm in Florida and the sun is relentless, especially at my house. I feel like my driveway is about 30 feet from the surface of the sun. Thanks for the heads up.

@8675309 Ah yes, Arizona is no joke. The first time I ever visited I felt this odd cooling sensation on my skin. It took me a moment to realize it was my sweat. We have so much humidity in FL, I had no idea what dry heat felt like.
