I always liked my 2012 Forester. The AWD system is the best, I used all the cargo area and liked it as much as my 2004 Honda CRV and it only had 56K miles. But I had not appreciated how safe the vehicle was until I was T-boned by a Chevy sedan going about 40-45mph. I walked away with just a sore neck.

Take a look at the pics.... and yes I just bought a 2019 Forester for the safety factor.

Glad you are OK. I'm thinking the 19 will serve you even better.

SuperRu-
Thanks for the concern. Vehicles are can be replaced, humans cannot. And my dog (Socrates) likes the Forester too, so I guess the commercials are correct. Good thing he was not with me during the accident...

I agree. I feel my best buddy Rory would be safe in the back seat of our Subaru if we were to get into an accident.

Wow, photo #4! One of my cats recently had to travel 20 miles on 101 to the specialist vet. I made sure his carrier was seat belted down and put him in the back seat even though it's a pain getting him in and out of a two door. I'm glad you had minimal injury. I'm definitely looking forward to a safety upgrade from a single air bag! Still about 5-6 weeks of waiting and no VIN number yet.

Glad you're okay buddy. That's why we only have Subarus. I hope to never get into an accident, but if I do, I'm pretty sure the Forester will protect me.

Very happy you are OK! I am 10K into my new 2019 Forester and I am positive you will love it.

I love everything about my Forester it except for the weak windshield, which seems to be a Subaru trait. My 2019 that is only 4 months old has a 12" crack caused by pebble that began near the base of the windshield and grew to 12" overnight. When I traded in my 2016 Outback at 79K miles I had already replaced one windshield and was going to need another because of rock damage that was beginning to spider out into a crack. I have been driving since 1975 and never had a cracked windshield on ANY car I owned and that is probably 50+ vehicles. I have had 3 on my two Subarus over 3 years.

There are those that claim the windshields at too thin or not very durable. I would have to agree, but I still adore my Subie!
