What do people think
about Subaru Forester ?
It took me a year to buy this Forester Turbo after shopping around for a real car. So after 2.5 years I still have the exitement evertime I get into the car. I really enjoy driving with the roof and all windows opended but sometimes I do close all the windows to enjoy music and video. It's so quiet that rivals my 9 year old LS-400...
