It is easy to drive, great window viewing, and wonderful for groceries in the back, etc. It is perfect for taking to the beach. It is a very solid and well build vehicle which makes it exceptionally safe to drive. I will always have a Subaru Forester in my life!
Best car on the road in my opinion
2011 Subaru ForesterR Mccown - salt lake city, UT10/23/2015
Before this forester i owned an 02 forester for 13 years. A forester is the only option this time also. Subaru Forester was the first to voluntarily install side air bags. To me that is a company committed to safety. Subaru's get the highest 5 star crash rating in govt testing, reliability is high, goes in the snow and any conditions safest care to own and drive. I'm an ex defensive driving instructor and safety and reliability is important to me. I dont like the 13's and newer models as they raised the height and hence center of gravity and dont hold the road as well and why i got an 11.
big car, nice but terrible city gas mileage
2012 Subaru Foresterdawn benedetto - mount rainier, MD10/03/2015
terrible gas mileage. I upgraded from a honda fit because I needed more space to haul around my booth (I am an artists who does a lot of craft shows and needed a vehicle that could handle the weight) I expected the mileage to be close to the sticker (22city/27hwy) and seriously, total lies. I drive "highway" often, but the only time I saw 27 mpg was on a road trip (1400+ miles). I was regretting not getting the VW tdi diesel wagon, but now that VW was exposed for fraud regarding emissions, I am only moderately ok with choosing the subaru.
