I'm in the same boat now... love my 2015 with 115K on it now, but is gonna need a few things soon that has me thinking... hmm, maybe it's time. Spent half it's life in Vermont before we moved to Florida, so there's some undercarriage issues that I'm not sure I want to invest the time in.
Problem is I waited too long and all the good 2023s are long gone. I'd go 2024, but that all electronic panel REALLY has me turned off... bring back my buttons and knobs! Even with the 2024s, there is sooo little available. I'm in Florida now and here's a story that tells it all. At work I ran into a lady in the parking lot with a brand new 2023 Forrester with Brattleboro, VT Subaru labels and a VT temp tag on it. I asked if she was from Vermont and did she drive it down here. She said no, they were from Florida and they couldn't find anything with the options they wanted. Doing internet searches they finally found this one in Brattelboro, they bought it sight unseen and had it shipped down!
Wow! The things you have to do these days to find enough cars to choose from. Long gone are the days when we could walk on the lot and go ennie-mennie-minie-mo for what you wanted. Enjoy!
