$770 price increase on each trim level, and nothing has been improved. # SUBARU GREED.

In closing, own ‘20 and ‘21 Foresters. ‘20 has 16K miles, and ‘21 has 13K. No issues. What I do not like re: these Foresters, is the required protocol re: tire issues. In fact, there could be a requirement to purchase qty 4 tires, even though only one tire needs to be replaced. 👎

Based on this SUBARU tire protocol, will be moving on from SUBARU.
