(sorry, this is my third post... should probably have introduced myself earlier!)

Recently moved back to AU after 12 years in the US. Just ordered our first Subaru - a Forester, MY18 2.5i-S - and probably going to have lots of dumb questions ;)

In the US we had Jeeps and a Mustang, and probably would have got a Jeep here if the prices weren't crazy (and petrol so expensive compared to the US!)

Living about 30 mins East of Melbourne CBD, probably the nearest we'll come to off-roading is poorly maintained roads out towards the mountains, the decision to get the Forester was mostly predicated by a large dog who needs to fit in the boot! Most of the options we looked at either had no depth, or no height, or weird holes/protrusions in the boot space that wouldn't be good for a dog (and we didn't want to end up with a Grand Cherokee/Ford Expedition size vehicle)

Overnight testdrive, and now a loaner while we wait for ours (base model MY16) very happy with the choice ... curious to see if it'll beat the 10 years and still going strong that our Jeep managed roaming around the Pacific Northwest :)
