Most comfortable Subaru.

Long legged drivers will enjoy the driver's seat design. The low passenger seat still defies logic! The compact rear suspension adds greatly to its capacity, plus it really handles great.

Very nice car

Since I purchased it I've seen a lot of people with Subaru. Everything about my car I love. It's a beautiful color, comfortable seats and very roomy. It drives very smoothly

Subaru's are awesome

This car is totally reliable and safe and fun to drive. The Forester is equipped to tackle the terrain and look stylish while doing it.

Still getting to know the new vehicle, but happy!

This car is meeting all of my needs, with only a few minor tweaks needed from initial purchase - and the seller (a dealer) has been fair, friendly, and open to offering good service packages to accompany sale. Glad I found them through Cars.com filtering options.

Most Reliable Car I Have Owned

I used to own a jeep but needed something that would not require constant maintenance. The Subaru Forester was perfect in everyway: reliable, handles well, plenty of passenger leg room, lots of trunk space. Overall great SUV

Worst vehicle I have EVER owned.

This car is a money pit. At just over 60,000 miles, it required a new head gasket. Less than a year later it blew a rod, requiring a new short block assembly. I had All the routine/scheduled maintenance done at my local Subaru dealer. They could not give me a satisfactory answer as to why these issues occurred. I was fortunate that I bought an extended warranty at the time I bought the vehicle, so out of pocket expenses were reduced. The muffler/catalytic system is a huge expense, with the parts alone over 1500 dollars. I know Subaru owners are known to be loyal, but I cannot stress enough that I will NEVER buy another Subaru vehicle.

Great feeling while driving

This car raises us up off the ground, it is so much easier to get in and out of. Love the style of the car and the Subaru quality is fantastic. Our mechanic is the person to go to a Subaru. He was absolutely correct

this is it

Great car for New England weather - AWD, heated seats for winter and strong AC, sun roof for summer. Decent mileage for AWD. Very comfortable and good vision.
