Used 2008 Subaru Forester X for Sale
Reviews for 2008 Subaru Forester
I love, love LOVE this car! The get-up-and-go factor is impressive considering it's only a 4 cylinder engine. I have to remember to be light on the gas pedal, but fortunately the cruise control feature works wonders! The car tends to let in a lot of outside noise, especially on the highway, but I was driving a truck before this car so I don't notice it too much. The storage room was one reason I was attracted to the car in the first place, and the back seats fold down easily to create double the room. The bar across the "truck" has a roll out screen that covers your belongings so no one can see the cargo you're carrying, but the bar also easily detaches if you need more height. The LL Bean edition of this car, which I have, also includes a floormat which is removable to make for easy cleaning. The ONLY drawback to this car is the back legroom... there isn't any. Tall passengers may have a tough time getting comfortable for any lengthy trip.
I like it!
Yes, it's a little noisy -- that's the Subaru way -- but it's comfortable, solid, and fast. I'm having a little trouble w/ the sensors -- they keep going off -- but CarMax is working on that. I really like the car.
I got the car I wanted at Carmax!
I picked this car based on my research of Consumer Reports' Used Car Buying Guide. Although there are not many to be found in Austin, or Texas, for that matter, Carmax helped me find what I wanted. The AWD and many safety features were very important to me. The sales associate was very knowledgeable and helpful and I love the no-pressure sales practices and real customer care of Carmax. This is my second car to buy from them and it is the best car buying experience you'll ever have! The only thing disappointing about the car is that the gas mileage is not as good as I had hoped, but still, it's not too bad and I love this car!
