I had a hitch-mounted one, and the advantage is you don't have to do much lifting. Plus it doesn't affect the aerodynamics of your car. 3rd advantage - you need less clearance for garages, etc.
Cost is the only disadvantage. If you can make use of the hitch for other things, it's worth it. I towed small trailers with mine.

thank you for your help! i'll get some pricing on getting a hitch installed. yes, it is a bummer, because my prior vehicles were a chevy s-10 blazer (with hitch) and a land rover discovery (with hitch). our forester (used 2006) did come with many features like heated windshiled, seats, roof racks, all weather mats, alloy wheels, sun roof, auto climate control, and many other cool add-ons, but I am missing the hitch!
