OK, you got me going now. I just went with my wife to our nearest Subaru dealer out in Riverhead and sat in a 2009 Forester.
Very very nice!
Looks great on the outside and the seats, arm and legroom are all excellent for my 6'1" 230 lb size. The leg room and comfort in the rear seats was really good, much better than the '08 Outback I sat in to compare. I also liked the higher seating position and visibility much better than in the Outback wagon.
The interior trim didn't do a whole lot for me compared to the Outback LL Bean that I sat in however. But I guess the Forester Limited model will spruce that up a bit. Overall though I really liked the look and feel of the new Forester. I'm tempted to hold off on my used car search a bit and reconsider my plans.
