Where I live AWD is not an option ¿ 7000 ft. altitude in Northwest Colorado, USA. That, and the great reliability I¿ve always enjoyed with Subaru are two of the reasons I purchased the 2012 Forester. I had been buying Outback¿s, but went with the Forester this time because: it is a little higher off the ground, better visibility, easier to get in and out of, less snow jamming in the wheel wells. Although I didn¿t buy it for outstanding gas mileage, I am happy nonetheless with what I am getting ¿ 24 MPG mixed use, and 28 MPG on the highway. If I¿m really carful and keep it under 65 MPH I can get 32 MPG on the highway. I think people who get less than 20 MPG with this vehicle must have a ¿lead foot¿. My wife, 11 year old, and I just took a 600 mile road trip and all of us found the comfort level perfectly acceptable ¿ including the seats. I think if you¿re around average height you¿ll find the seats comfortable too. The Forester is certainly not as quiet as my dad¿s Cadillac, but I didn¿t buy it for a quiet ride. I will change to Goodyear winter tires this fall and leave them on year-round. Other than that I will just drive this Forester for 2 years in hopes that a 4th generation debuts in 2014 with a 6 speed automatic transmission.Read more reviews at Cars.com
