2015 Subaru ForesterJulie H - Pasadena, MD01/30/2017
This car has very well thought out features. Everything that is really needed is there and it is in easy reach. The seat is comfortable and the drive is stable (not too bumpy). I love the height of it. Getting in and out of the car as well as loading groceries in the back is great. I like sitting a little higher for driving visibility and I feel safer. The dashboard indicators are a little sparse (bare minimum). I don't like how hard it is to see how fast I'm going (this should be digital or easier to see quickly on the dashboard). Overall, I wouldn't trade this car for anything.
My car has a smooth travel and quick braking. It is reliable and fits my family of 5 perfectly warm and comfortable. The moonroof and heated seats make for that added comfort and enjoyment of both hot and cold seasons. I feel this vehicle is safe and sturdy and would get another one in the future.

2014 Subaru ForesterStella Swartz - Colorado Springs, CO11/27/2017
This car burns oil. I have had to replace about 1 quart of oil every 1-2 months since purchasing. After some digging, it turns out this year/make/model is notorious for this issue, yet there are not any recalls in place to fix the issue. I would recommend going with another year of this model to avoid the same issue.
This vehicle also does not get the fuel mileage that is stated in the vehicle details. I drive all highway miles and average 27 miles per gallon, not the stated 32.
