215K miles on my hand-me-down forester (2003). My wife likes the AWD as she is more afraid of me getting stuck somewhere on a dirt rd than anything else. The older forester is short, so loading/unloading canoes is a breeze. the longer profile of the vehicle helps with canoes too. MPG could be better, but for an AWD it is ok. I'd rather it was a U.S. car. My wife has converted the whole family (except her father) into subaru drivers.
