Best all around car ever.

by from Pennsylvania on May 13, 2017

Quick awd car thats amaing in all weather. Ergonomically almost perfect. After a 12 hour drive you step out and not even sore. 5spd trans is hard to find but well worth it. Lots of fun.

I bought this car new and have always had it serviced by the dealer, first Russell, now Heritage. The car has never, ever given me any trouble. I credit the excellent service it has received over its 240k plus miles. Thanks Lujuan and all the great professionals at Heritage! I know where I'll purchase my next Subaru.

After 13 years it's time to bid my Forester farewell. So bittersweet, as its purchase was a great decision and it doesn't feel all that dated. Pros: Extremely durable. I've driven this car through everything and only ended up with scratches and scuffs So consistent. Even at 180,000 miles, gas mileage of 23/28 has held up and AC still runs cold Handling is adequate, as would be expected from a Subaru. Can tow up to 2,000 lbs Cons: Road noise is bad. Changing out the original Yokohama Geolander tires with Michelins helped, as did replacing original window gussets Like most cars, things start to go bad after 100k. In the last 3 years, I've had to replace front o2 sensor, rear wheel bearings, and now have a buggy air assist solenoid. Biggest caveat is leaky head gaskets, fortunately mine are holding thanks to using subaru coolant with a bottle of conditioner thrown in. Back seats are low and not comfortable. Also they do not fold 100% flat when down At 165 HP, a bit underpowered for a car this size.

I am very happy with my purchase of a 2004 Subaru Forester! Wonderful all around visual field?like having lodge seats at a movie house and optional sound-track score, wonderful stability on the road?none of that creepy sway effect, good acceleration, good gas mileage, an interior that is comfortable, attractive and cargo effective, dependable and good safety record/features.
