I voted for Forester.
Why? Because I would keep my eyes out for a newer gen XT, they pop up once in awhile, and they're cheaper than buying one new. As a plus, most times (if not all) they're owned by little old ladies that have no idea what they're capable of. And since they're automatic only, there's no huge demand for them. You get to keep the sportiness, and also get to avoid buying new.
If you don't want an XT, then I also notice that CL is full of late gen models (base, and premium) from people who buy them, then decide to leave the state.
Just my .02.
