I'm liking the 2011 WRX 5-door. It's on my shortlist of vehicles I am considering when I turn the Forester back next year.
The 2009 Forester XT has held up very well over the past 25,000 miles. I put more miles on it in two years than I did on the '05 Legacy GT after four years. It's been a great vehicle. I wish it had more power though and an extra gear for better highway fuel mileage. I average about 23 mpg on the highway, and 17 in the city right now.
