We're on our 3rd Forester, and while the last one had the dreaded headgasket issue, it lasted us 7+ years and we absolutely beat it as a family hauler. I like that it comes with AWD so we can take it camping off the pavement. I love the added traction in the snow and rain when we go up to Big Bear. I love that our latest one has eyesight standard and it's not a $3000 option. For the money, Subaru delivers, and I don't really care that it's not the fastest SUV on the road. That's not why we got them. I have other cars for going fast.

I think they look good, not overly stylized, discreet, although I think the non-Touring Foresters look too plain, the added chrome/aluminum bits improve the aesthetics tremendously.

I'd say I am brand loyal to a point. I've had 7 BMWs in the past 7 years. However, I see a shift in the BMW lineup that doesn't seem as appealing as it did before. Time will tell what the G80 brings and what they do with the M2 CS.
