All good - in and out in no time at all. The service center at Lithia Toyota Billings was outstanding
Great car; excellent visability
by LynO from Boone, NC

This car is great for mountain roads and highway driving. Eyesight was a selling point when I purchased and recommend buying Starlink every year. Having that connection when something has happened is worth every cent. What sold me along with Eyesight was the visibility of the Forester and the interior room. I tested a CRV and the Forester and the Sub won hands down.
I went in looking for a rav 4 and got one leases for the price point I wanted. They were very knowledgeable and if they were unsure of something they found it out. Very personable honest, and helpful as this was my first vehicle.
3 years old and it looks brand new

This car had my must-haves. It was not silver or gray, has a moon roof and a good carfax history. I feel pampered in the leather HEATED seats. I can filly say I have a hot behind!
Hertz had a great selection of SUV vehicles which we were looking for. Kevin helped us check out the right vehicles and gave us sound advice as we evaluated each one. He even got a tape measure so we could measure haul space! And after all that, the price was right! Thanks Kevin.
Good All-Purpose Car

Full disclosure: My girlfriend owns it, but I drive it a lot. I find the 2017 Forester to be a pretty decent small SUV. I find it comfortable and fairly well-designed. I'm not a huge fan of CVTs but find it has enough pep when I need it. The dash is fairly well-organized and all critical controls are knobs and buttons rather than buried in the touch screen like some cars. A few things could be slightly better organized but these are minor details. The Subaru infotainment system is pretty lacking and the touch screen is buggy sometimes. They're behind the curve on this. But overall it's a decent car even if I'd like it more with a 6 speed manual.
I highly recommend Ressler Motors! Brian was very helpful and informative, he listened to our needs and was able to find a great match. My husband and I are first time toyota owners and Brian couldn’t have made the process easier. They even have a small play area for kids - always a plus when you have toddlers!

This car is what just I was looking for! Although it's compact outside it's spacious inside, smooth to drive, steady, with all wheel drive.
My only complaint so far is it seems loud when starting and shifting speed significantly, so hopefully the engine isn't racing, but once you're at the same speed for ~15 or so seconds, it levels and quiets.
I'm very pleased with this purchase so far. Once I see it longer term through the winter I'll give an updated review.
As we have experienced in the past, purchasing a car from Ressler is a good experience. Chris Tong, the finance people, the delivery team and management all are first class. Thank You
Solid 4-wheel drive SUV
by tah9 from Erie PA
January 29, 2019
Positive: Very solid 4-wheel drive medium-size SUV. Great interior, wonderful visibility through large windows for safe turning, changing lanes and backing up. Handy rear video backup camera. Good traction for winters, even without snow tires. Eyesight package is a comforting feature, even for short local highway drives, since it helps keep you in pace with traffic without going over your set limit. Heated front seats are sweet.
Negative: Rubber pad on back bumper (part of winter package) seems to come unglued (body shops have reattached it twice). Plastic cowls (about 8" long) next to wipers on left and right sides of windshield rattle in the wind. Lacks low-oil indicator on dash display, so only way to know is to manually check oil level.
Professional and friendly staff , willing to negotiate and work with our needs. Good variety and quality of available vehicles to choose from. Thank you!!
Love my Subaru
by Ivonne from Nashua, NH

Feel safe! Had a rollover in a 2012 Forester, the other driver fell sleep. Because I am alive, the insurance adjuster said he has never seen anyone survive such an accident, I bought myself another one, a 2016. The only complaint is the Yokahama Geolander tires. I only have 24,000 miles on them but they are worn. Never seen such a thing. Will be replacing them in a few days before inspection. Other reviews say the same, they are the low quality eventhough they are expensive. In my family we own several Subaru's.
Tim the owner gets quality cars and will fix or back up any purchase with any make. Granted he loves Subarus and European cars but gets all kinds of automobiles at his lot. Financing easy even with credit issues. Performance Auto is my choice for a great used SUV or second car. Thanks again and I will send you referrals. Cmart
Most reliable car I’ve owed
by AdofoLee from Brooklyn, ny
November 7, 2018
My Subaru made me one of those guys. Yes the nut jobs that owned Subarus before 2016. We were a devoted hard core set of fanboys and girls. We went around in our little engines that could. No one but us knowing there were few places we dared tread. We only gave respect to Land Rovers and Jeep CJ owners. 200k hah! That’s a wuss accomplishment! Races, Rally’s, into the woods, the beach, the SNOW! It was the most fun I’ve had in a car in my life (2002 Q45 excepted). 250k miles been in accidents where the other cars are totaled and she’s still running. Got a bigger, more luxurious, more efficient 2019 Forester, not feeling as much fun, but still nicer for my older behind. Let’s see what happens there.
When we walked in to the dealership we immediately felt comfortable. Our sales rep - Michael Turner - was friendly, knowledgeable, and applied NO SALES PRESSURE. We left the dealership to check out six other car dealerships in the area but decided to return to Gallatin Motors. We are happy with our purchase and with the staff. They are all professional.
First Forester, fourth subaru
by Space monkey from Omaha, NE
January 27, 2019
We needed a car with plenty of interior space to fit our dogs and camping gear, and wanted to be sure we would be ok in all kinds of terrain. The new forester sport checked all of the boxes. Comfy, gets us everywhere, and has all the features we need plus some we realized are nice.
The only thing we miss is a manual transmission. Come on America....
Was not able to drive to take a look or make an offer on this pickup truck due to time crunch. Trying to settle Insurance claim at same time.
Superior for low back & mobility issues.
by MartiJP from Dayton, Ohio

This car met our family needs. Gas mileage is very good for commuting and very supportive for passenger comfort. Wide doors for easy entry for physically impaired passengers, and loads of leg room. Although better than most, the thickness of the descending support for the right arm rest puts uncomfortable pressure on lateral knee bone. Must adjust seat to partially avoid.
Great experience this past week with Ben in sales and Kevin in financing. They gave us a great deal on a vehicle and were very transparent with vehicle records and everything we asked regarding the vehicle. They made our long distance transaction (Colorado) smooth and comforting. Very trustworthy group!! If you are looking for a used vehicle I would strongly recommend checking them out.
Most fuel effecient SUV I've ever owned.
by Old.Jedi from Portage, MI

This SUV is a great vehicle for the money, and is extremely comfortable on long road trips. It has a smooth ride with ample power for around town use. I would have preferred an analog fuel gauge instead of the digital one.
Excellent long distance purchase from Auto Choice. Ben made the transaction easy and painless. Great communication and support. I would definitely purchase another vehicle from this dealership
Bearing design problems.
by Davido from Columbus OH
January 14, 2019
We’ve own a 2003 and 2013 Foresters and both of them had extensive wheel bearing problems at around 40-60,000 miles, costing $1500 ea. Came to learn from a Subaru auto mechanic that Subarus have a design problem with bearing seals. We will not ownanother one in the future.
The purchase process went well but the follow up has been nothing but miserable. They are not all on the same page and as a result I have been called multiple times because of their inability to communicate within their building. Cannot recommend this dealership to any of my colleagues.
Beautiful and durable vehicle.
by Rebecca from Minnetonka

This car meets and exceeds all of my needs. I looked an numerous wagon-like models, because my old car was . VW Passat wagon. I looked at the Outback and the Forester, and immediately chose the Forester because of the feeling of space (more head room, bigger windows, and the moon roof).
A comfortable ride, an elevated seating position, standard all-wheel drive, and available state-of-the-art safety technology. Excellent fuel economy. Exceptional acceleration thanks to sequential fuel injection. Best AWD system developed so far.
