Needs to be a 6-Cyls and it would be great

It would be a fantastic car if it were a 6-cyl. Because it's only a 4-cyl, it really struggles when you have cargo and passengers. They really should have made it a 6-cyl, it's just doesn't have enough HP's, the low gas mileage is proof: 22/gallon which is really bad for a 4-cyl.


Great price for great car

I was looking for a car like this. Down sized from my truck to this and I'm very happy. I would buy this car five times over!


Very good daily driver.

I own a base model subaru forester and it is very reliable, comfortable, and fun to drive. Never had any real problems, other than a few quality issues (front doors rattle and windows seals and not very good). Very good in snow.


Very good car for the NE!

This is a reliable, roomy vehicle that works great in snow. It has plenty of space, comfortable seating and is great on gas.


Subaru Forester. A 2010 review.

Our Subaru has served us well since we bought it new in 2010. The interior is spacious and comfortable. The controls are well positioned, with cruise and stereo on the streeing wheel. The AWD saved our trip from Waco to Emory one day in March. A snow storm formed right as we started home and piled snow up to 8 inches deep before we got home. We passed multiple wrecks that day but never felt unsecured in our car. We are looking to replace this 2010 with a 2017 - 2018 Subaru Forester.


Never left me stranded

The SUV is great except for the wheels/tires installed when bought as brand new. I do not know which the rims or the tires. I constantly have to pump air into random tires when the "low tire" light comes on. The tires that came with the vehicle were P225/55R17 Yokohama Geolander H/T G95A.


Disappointed with leaky head gasket problem

I love the quality of the Subaru. I have enjoyed driving it, find it comfortable for long trips, and for hauling whatever is necessary (like baby stuff!) I AM disappointed that I had to replace the drive train, an oil sending unit, and now have been told I have leaking head gaskets. After internet research, it appears this is a "common" problem.


The Car for Adventure

This vehicle met all of my needs. It was comfortable, fuel efficient, spacious, runs well, great price. Sad to see it go, but I have a second car that I love too!



Perfect for my dog and I to get to the creek. Works well for getting loads of groceries too! I feel safe in it :)


Fun and reliable car

This car is a fun and sporty SUV with plenty of head room and leg room in the front and back seats. With the back seats down there is lots of room to haul things.
