I just purchased my first Subaru, a 2017 Forester 2.5i Premium. It's white, low miles, and I really like it -- although it seems like too nice a car for me. You see, I started out driving air cooled VWs, and still own a '71 Campmobile and a '70 beetle that needs restoration. I also have an '85 Honda Civic that now boasts 404,000 miles (slightly cheating since I had a used engine put in at 288K). I am hoping my Forester will be with me a long time.
I haven't read the owners' manual yet, so I hesitate to ask too many questions right off the bat. My mileage isn't as good as advertised, but I wonder if that's because here in Montana, we have hills and lots of wind -- and an 80 mph speed limit on the interstate.
I'm new, have a lot to learn, but am glad I found this forum. So much information here. On top of that, it's clear to me that many Subaru enthusiasts are as crazy about their rigs as us air cooled guys. Love it!
