Decent all around, could be a little better on gas but it is a good car.

2006 Subaru Forester 2.5 X w/Premium Pkg

Decent on gas, plenty of legroom, heated seats and a lot of room in the hatch. The engine is strong and the car has been reliable. The only downside is the all wheel drive and having to change out 4 tires for and inspections versus 2 on a rwd. Comfortable seats for long range drives.
