Great Car.. 2007 era true to the Forester Concept

Shopped for this model for over 6 months. Wanted a 2.5X Manual. Dealer I bought it from preemptively replaced the head gaskets with the "good" aftermarket ones, not OEM even though there was no evidence of a problem. Also changed the cam belt ( overdue). The manual version of this non turbo car is very responsive though not a speed demon. Handling both on curves and on the highway is better than the more recent models. The car is a very good compromise between overall size and interior room.

This vehicle is very reliable. It is good for a small family. One thing I especially liked was the fact that it was 4 wheel drive. As a mom who is always up and down with the kids, I found this feature to be very very useful especially when there is a lot of snow out. There is also plenty of cargo room.

I needed to get a newer used car and Subarus seemed a good bet. I test drove a bunch and this one seemed to fit the bill. But I had not bought a car in 10 years and was not as attentive to certain things at the time. The pros on this car are the AWD - Subaru makes one of the best - and its reliability. The cons are what I found out after driving over time and with practical use. To start there is very little legroom in the back seat. Also you cannot fit more than two people in the backseat - the middle section is only for a tiny child at best. Space in the rear trunk area is limited. Subaru uses cheap materials and little soundproofing so road noise especially on the highway was quite loud. In addition there was something wrong with the drivers side door (the windows are not surrounded by the door) as a lot of wind noise penetrated through. It was impossible to hear the radio/CD once over 50 mph without turning it way up. To top it all off apparently there was a known issue with the fuel pumps and at about 60k miles they would start emitting a high pitched whining noise. I got the car at 60k miles and one day within a couple weeks of getting the car my wife asked me what was that noise? At first I hadn't noticed it but once I did it was impossible to drown out. It was maddening! It's worse in the cold. I researched it online and Subaru knew about it and fixed it on the 2009 model. Everyone else was stuck! At this pointed I loathed the car but I was stuck with it for 2 years until I could replace it. I will NEVER buy another Subaru again!!
