I love everything about my 2007 Forester. It has moved my daughter in and out of dorms (1 trip, 2 passengers, no other cars), and apartments in NYC, carried firewood more times than I can count, and filled up to the top with stuff to sell at flea markets. And it has also taken many of trips to Ohio and Virginia, and tons of day-to-day travel. It's nice to have heated seats and mirrors, and the sunroof, but those are just some of the perks. A great car.
