The Subie flipped :(

Well, without getting into too many details, our Subaru Forester "was hit". In a slow collision, the vehicle flipped on its side. No one was hurt or anything, but we're a bit shaken about the whole thing.

Now the debate rages on for me. My partner travels a long way for work and therefore drives a lot. We're not too emotionally attached to the Subaru. I'm struggling to decide whether its worth replacing the car even if its not totaled (get all the safety stuff and such, and I'm really unhappy the 2014 Forester flipped).

Anyone have any advice regarding SUV/CUVs/ with safety systems (collision mitigation, lane departure warning, etc)?

The most important part is "they lived".


Why not look into another Subaru?

Definitely a consideration. I'm just reviewing all the possibilities.

TIL Kurt listened to Bob and bought a CR-V
Should have suggested he get a V instead
But then Kurt would have said he already has one
FFS Kurt

Taking the show on the road cu2wagon
Kurt didn't even post pics of the rolled subie or update us on the CR-V
That's totally a Kurt move

Oh yeah, that was a while back. I did forget to post pictures, but I was pretty freaked out when the car flipped on its side.
