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!
Exactly the car I need
2015 Subaru ForesterJulie H - Pasadena, MD01/30/2017
This car has very well thought out features. Everything that is really needed is there and it is in easy reach. The seat is comfortable and the drive is stable (not too bumpy). I love the height of it. Getting in and out of the car as well as loading groceries in the back is great. I like sitting a little higher for driving visibility and I feel safer. The dashboard indicators are a little sparse (bare minimum). I don't like how hard it is to see how fast I'm going (this should be digital or easier to see quickly on the dashboard). Overall, I wouldn't trade this car for anything.
One of the most amazing things about the car is the mileage. After every trip, the miles per gallon used is shown. I cannot say how often it is 34.7 or 30 plus miles per gallon. It was not supposed to be this good according to what was reflected on the window. I am very impressed.
It is also one of the smoothest running vehicles I have ever owned.
