Q. Recently, you did a comparison of small SUVs and left out the Subaru Forester. In my opinion, the Forester stacks up better than the Toyota RAV4 or Honda CR-V. Considering how well it does in crash tests, why did you leave this car out of the mix?
A. The Subaru Forester is a great car, but the writer who emailed me was, for some reason, specific that he didn’t want a Subaru. I like the Forester a lot, although some readers tell me their cars are prone to wandering on very windy days at highway speeds.
