Subara Forester Owner For Life

I absolutely love my forester! It drives so well. It feels really stable in bad weather as well. I definitely think it deserves all the great reviews on its safety. Its the perfect size too. You can also fit tons of things/people/dogs it and be very comfortable. I know some people complain that its noise and I can tell a little difference from my old car but not to a point that it really bothers me. The drivers seat doesn't have much support or adjustment so on long drives my body aches a bit but I'm sure a good foam cushion or some lumbar support would fix that. Overall I can't think of a better compact SUV and will probably buy another Subaru when its time for a new vehicle again.

Lacking in Fit and Finish

Bought one of these cars after thinking about owning one for years. The 2009 is a nice upgrade from previous years. It's roomier (very nice), quieter, rides better, and has a more modern interior. I think mechanically you can trust these cars. Subaru has built a pretty solid reputation on their boxer engine and all wheel drive drivetrain. Based on what I've heard from other owners these things stay on the road for years. What's lacking however is the fit and finish of this car's interior. Noises from the inside are quite annoying, lots of fasteners that buzz, panel pieces, etc. Given its solid feel on the road and the soundness of its drivetrain it's really disappointing that the same level of craftmanship wasn't shown in assembling the inside. Oh well, gas mileage is good. I see 30/31 mpg hwy if going 60mph. At 70mph it drops to 28mpg. Mixed driving: 24/25mpg. Lacks some low end torque compared to previous years but otherwise acceleration w/ a 5spd manual is sufficient. I would recommend this car with disclaimers.

Nice Experience

Great car! This is my first Subaru. Wanted to buy used first before buying new. So far I love the better gas mileage compared to my last SUV.
