Reasons why I bought this car
The main reason on why I bought this Subaru Forester is because of its safety features. since I always drive long-distance, the safety of the car is always my top priority, with their famous AWD I can safely drive during the raining season and threaded minor flood with ease. Other then that I look into practicality of the car, it is a very spacious car so both of my sons can seat comfortably during long distance. 1 of them is 6'3" tall. Lastly, the price when I bought it was way low then my other choices.
