All around great car won me over.
2006 Subaru Forester 2.5 X L.L. Bean Edition
I bought my car used, put a little work in, and have absolutely loved it. I was afraid it was going to feel big and SUV-ish, but I am happy to say it is just right. I love the ground clearance and the height I sit at while driving, and there are virtually no blind spots with all of those windows. It has heated seats, and the biggest sunroof I have ever seen. The AWD is amazing in snowy ct where I live, though that big, flat roof is hard to clear snow off of at times. This car is practical and powerful, feels safe and like it just might run forever.
