I was initially concerned this vehicle would be a little small for my 6'-2" frame but I am impressed every time I climb in. Plenty of room!! I consider this a SUV without the bulk. My previous SUV did not perform near as good as my Forester, I am impressed once again!! I have tried to break traction with this AWD system in loose gravel and rain but still haven't managed to do it, bring on ole'man winter:) This Subaru is also fun to drive in traffic and has impressive acceleration for a 4 cylinder engine. For an all around fun drive I suggest a Subaru Forester.

This car so far has been terrific, exceeding my expectations. The gas mileage has averaged out around 27 MPG in overall driving conditions. For a 4 cylinder engine, the response when you push down on the gas pedal is more than adequate. I have only been in an all wheel situation once with this car and it performed as though it was on level ground with no power problems whatsoever. Accessories on this model are more than I will ever use - blue tooth - power windows - large sunroof that works like a charm - power driver's seat - heated seats - roomy back seat - plenty of cargo space. Only possible minus is when I purchased a Subaru Cargo carrier and had to purchase additional roof racks to make it work properly. (In my opinion, these should be standard equipment.) I have owned this car about 6 weeks now and am still very content with my choice.
I had not owned a Subaru before, but I live in the mountains and the Subaru reputation was a positive factor. So far all is very solid.

We fell in love with this vehicle during the road test and are still in love with it. We feel very safe when we go up into the mountains with it. We watch the gas gauge to see when we will have to fuel up and we have tired of that. The vehicle handles nicely and rides very smoothly. We love the body style and the room inside, very relaxing. We are still learning more about this vehicle every day.
