2014 Subaru ForesterSmith Smith - Greenville, SC08/23/2016
The Subarus! great cars..very reliable, safe and good looking! I love Subarus, I just bought my 3rd one, I got the Forester Limited 2.51 and is worth every penny. The ride is so smooth, the car handles the curves great. It is quite and very spacious, the back seats have so much space, great for tall people. The trunk is big too. I have owned them for years, they have never given me any problems, I keep them updated with their services and maintenance. On top when you get them from the Subaru dealerships, you will always get great support.
Meeting ALL expectations!
2011 Subaru ForesterPaul D - Great Falls, VA01/04/2016
Specifically wanted the safest car we could afford for our teenage daughters to drive. Its build quality, crash test ratings (and real life reputation), and great fuel economy give us peace of mind. The Subaru Forester is also a lot of fun to drive, and ts enormous sunroof gets lots of kudos from their friends (i.e. all the light without the wind of a convertible).
Soon after moving from KS to the steep, curvy, sometimes snowy and icey Teton mountains I realized I needed a different car. I researched then chose a Subaru.
Man, am I happy! In the mountains life must go on in the cold and snow. There's no choice! I confidently and safely drive on roads thru conditions that would keep me homebound in KS!
I love my Subaru! I've told my family: I may even start sleeping with it!
