When I first got my Subaru Forester, I was already a fan of Subaru. But owning one and being able to take it on trails, and use it for an every day commuter made me love it even more. I can use the car for whatever I want, and in any condition and to me that is a huge plus.
Story
I took my girlfriend on a trail in this car and we both enjoyed the experience very thoroughly. It is a great car for any type of trails and muddy/ snowy weather.
Pros
My favorite thing about the vehicle is the fact that is an all purpose, do whatever you need type of car. The all wheel drive is fantastic. It is a very comfortable car to be in, for up to five people. It holds all of my fishing stuff and bikes. It has a massive sun roof for pretty, starry nights.
Cons
It is only a 2005 model but it a has 170000 miles. That kind of sucks because things have a higher chance of breaking. I haven't had any problems, and I hope it stays that way for a few more years.

2005 Subaru Forester - I would buy this car over and over again for the rest of my life.

I bought this Subaru from my brother had owned it for five years, and I knew that he had taken very consistent care of it. He had the oil changed on time and always fixed repairs promptly. I had to use this car for work, and I drove so much everyday—it added up to over 3,000 miles every month. After driving through snowy winter weather in Upstate New York, I could not believe how safe I consistently driving this car. Also, the back of the car held so much! I was able to spontaneously load up a dresser in the back easily. Also, the aspect that the seats folded up and down was great, and I could sleep comfortably in the back. Traveling for fun became a great thing to do with this car, due to that aspect.
Story
I just remember driving through snowy conditions that were so crazy when I was getting used to my new job in Upstate New York. I kind of developed an emotional relationship to the car, because it made me feel safe. While getting used to the most high pressure job I have had up to that point in my life, it was so nice to not have to worry about my car.
Pros
The top positive things about this car were that it handled really well in bad weather. It also was great going up and down hills. I loved that it was standard car and that I could control the driving more due to this. It held a lot in the back space. It was adaptable since the seats went up and down. It was also super comfortable and had great visibility.
Cons
I did not have a lot of complaints about this car in general, although it had developed rusty areas after five years of usage. Also, it could have had better gas mileage. I also would have preferred a partially electric car, if I had a choice.
