Down sized to much...

This is our third Subaru, the first was an Outback it's equity helped us get out of a Mini Cooper S lease. No problems with the wagon at all, wasn't happy about the looks but great for beach and carrying around a new born. Then we thought she since she is getting older we could get by with the sportier looking Subaru Crosstrek. Great car for beach and dependable averaged 32-33 MPG in the city, a bit slower than the Outback. But we soon realized that it was to small for the three of us, no problems with any of the vehicles( oil burning, unusual trips to dealer). We took the Crosstrek in for routine maintenance and test drove a Forester 2.5i premium excellent vehicle getting 30 MPG in the city , real quite inside, seating position is quite a bit taller and a lot more cargo space :-] . Loaded it up this past weekend and went to the beach, the all wheel drive system is better than Crosstrek, we never got stuck in it but there is an obvious difference. The text to speech function, 8" display, power drivers seat, reclining rear seat , rear center arm rest with cup holders and the panoramic sun roof are great. I replaced the interior light bulbs with leds they make the interior look better at night. A definite keeper..
