Got to say it, I'm loving this little car.
The used 2012 Subaru Forester acquired earlier this week tackles marginal dirt and gravel roads like a mountain goat.
I took it out in a few places today that I would never have taken a mini-van, and even had reservations of plunging ahead in my 2wd Ranger.
Getting the feeling I may regret not getting an older, cheaper one with a few dings.
The one I have is too nice to really undertake any torture tests or true off-road challenges. At least not right away. Yet there's a part of me that really, really wants to see what kinds of obstacles this little car, and its 8.7 inch ground clearance, can work its way through.
