I was thinking about getting a new Forester - but they’re a little too big for me, and pricey. Does anyone have insight for the Crosstrek? I’ve read that the engine might be a bit underpowered, and they’re only about $2k less than the Forester.
Any remarks about the Maxda CX5?
I need the extra ground clearance, and a car that can handle mud (a regular country road, not off-road!)
I wanted a used '07-'09 Forester but am having trouble finding one with the features I want, reasonable price, without super high mileage.
