Best Little Vehicle on the Road!

This little crossover vehicle can haul an entire year's worth of clothes, food and art supplies across the USA without a hitch! It is very comfortable to ride in and easy to handle on the road. We absolutely love it and recommend it to everyone!

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.

Very Satisfied

I traded my beloved Jeep Wrangler in on this Subaru Forester, and while I miss my Jeep, I am so very satisfied with the Forester. Great pick up, smooth ride, easy to drive, and all kinds of room. The seats are fine, though not exceptional like the rest of the car, and I'm not fond of the "metallic plastic" parts of the interior such as the arm rests on the doors. They look kind of silvery gray and my 86 year old mother says it "matches her hair." That's not necessarily something she ever said about any part of the Jeep. Other reviews I read ragged on the stereo system and/or the loud engine. I have absolutely no issue with either. I just wish all the folks that have Subarus would wave at each other.
