1900 RPM. It barely moves the needle. Yeah I'm still breaking in the unit. I got only about 350 miles on it. I like to take it easy up to 1000 Ml. After will play. I had a WRX before and I wanted as much power but something that can handle deeper snow.

1900rpm at 60mph on an XT, right? Nice...humming along using very little gas I'm sure.
Any non-turbo owners who can check?

Is anyone else out there somewhat concerned about thieves smashing the small "wind-wing" style glass near the side mirrors? Seems like an easy way for criminals to get into the car just like they did back in the 70's... it would then be very easy to unlock the front door once broken.

If a thief wants in, they'll get in.
I'm sure this is more secure than the old frameless doors.

Indeed. however, like someone else said. if they want it, theyll get in regardless of that window. I would personally prefer that small window seeing as it would be easier to see more of the road with less blind spots.

Agreed regarding the theft sentiments. As for the utility of the glass, I'm not convinced. There's nothing to see through there, and I doubt, from a safety perspective, anyone would miss it.

Less curb rash when parallel parking, is my guess.

I have emailed a few dealerships about a 2.0XT Premium & I am being told they are not making very many of these. Has anyone else heard of this? I have only found 4 within 100 miles of me in CA.

Fitzmall has more than 100 Foresters and only 3 of them are XT Premiums.
So not unheard of but far from common.

The dealership I emailed with is not willing to discount the car much either. I am probable going to look for a different car.
