I was amazed at how rapidly and thoroughly the recall work was done. This shop even found another wiring problem and repaired it free. My car was washed and vacuumed to perfection

First Forester, fourth subaru
by Space monkey from Omaha, NE

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....
I had a very good experience. I was listened to. Good recommendations were made without me feeling pressured.
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.
Jeff helped me and we negotiated a reasonable price on a car, I would recommend him to anyone interested in buying a car for the family.
Good All-Purpose Car
by Alex from Brooklyn, NY
January 29, 2019
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.
This was the third vehicle I have bought at Power Chevrolet. Great service and will buy here again! We had a little issue with this truck and they fixed it!

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.
Matthew Trexler is the sales person who accompanied us while looking at cars. He is very friendly & sharp; he answered all questions & offered suggestions. We'd also like to acknowledge Jermaine Washington, Chris Dupont & Rich Miles for making this a pleasant buying experience. We are very pleased with our new Subaru Outback. Great folks & a great dealership. We'll certainly recommend you to folks that we know.
Awesome Car to Own!
by Junebug2000 from Fayetteville, Georgia

This was a great car to own. It fit with all of my needs, and was a great buy! Would purchase another one, anytime. Very reliable.
We came into Capitol Subaru after just purchasing a used truck 2 weeks before from another dealer. The truck was horrible and kept breaking down on us and we hadn't even made a payment yet, the other dealer would not help us at all, we were stuck with it. We didn't know what options we would have, if any, when we got to Capitol. That's when we met John Mendrin and we told him our situation and he thought they would be able to do something for us. It turned to be a very long day but John made it fun and comfortable for us and it was very low pressure. At the end of the day Capitol was able to get us out of our loan on the truck and get us in to a brand new Forester! We would like to thank everybody who worked hard on our behalf, especially John who stuck with us literally the whole day and has the patients of a saint! Thank you!
Suabru can't go wrong
by Jitendra from Monmouth Junction

Excellent car for safety and performance. A repeat buyer.
Subaru has added latest safety features like Blind Spot Monitor, RAB, Land Departure warning and Excelent Sound System.
We went to Salem Volkswagen for a used vehicle which was listed on cars.com. The sales people were very knowledgeable, showed the proper interest in us as buyers and applied no pressure on us to buy something that day. Between phone calls, emails and our visit to the dealership, I was very happy with my experiences with them. I didn't end up buying the vehicle I went to see but would go back without hesitation if I saw something online again.
My 3rd Subaru and love it!
by Jane18 from DE

I love my Forester! It has the features I wanted plus a few more. The safety measures are excellent. The dealership, Rafferty Subaru in Newtown Square, PA is a fantastic place to do business.
Very clean, very professional. The manager on duty at the time was quick and helped me feel Nd what I was looking for and the young salesman went above and beyond showing me everything till I was happy.
Great car; excellent visability
by LynO from Boone, NC
January 30, 2019
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.
Our primary Sales Woman was a joy to work with! :) Very proactive and attentive to our needs. All of the staff we encountered were very happy and helpful and they made purchasing the vehicle a really nice experience.
Capable SUV with good MPG
by BRBikes from Everett, WA
December 15, 2018
This model of subi has been great, outside of the factory warranty 2.5L engine replacement. Quick and responsive with the 5 speed. The automatic leaves a bit to be desired. Almost 9 inches of ground clearance is Jeep territory and the AWD system inspires confidence in rain, snow and mud.
Overall pretty good but had some trouble getting in contact and getting on the same page as what needed to be done with insurance and down payments and what not.
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.
John was so knowledgeable and really got to know us when we went to the dealership last weekend for a commuter car. He never rushed us or made us feel like we were taking too much of his time while we were indecisive . . . Even though we spent our whole Saturday with him. Luckily Domino???s delivered!! John even called to follow up with us a couple of days after our purchase! Highly recommend this dealership & John!
Most fuel effecient SUV I've ever owned.
by Old.Jedi from Portage, MI
January 11, 2019
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.
Super impressed with her customer service!!!!! Hoenstly she holds the door open for her people , she talks when to them when they aren't happy, she turns unhappy customers into happy ones, love dealing with Nicole!
Good value for the money I paid, rides nice.
by Bober4n from Winnipeg

I feel comfortable and safe in the car, great visibility. The car handles extremely well in the snow, probably improve even more when I get snow tires. I like the exterior styling and open visibility, all around.
We moved to Corvallis and immediately began our routine service for both of our Subarus here. Love the customer service! Cars have always been done on time. The shuttle service is also helpful for longer appointments.
Most Innovated Car I have Ever Owned
by ottob from Rocky Point, New York
January 29, 2019
The safety features on this car are far beyond anything I ever expected. This car has " facial recognition" , adaptive cruise, lane change warning, front collision stop as well as rear stop. The headlights steer with the car, the auto dimming mirrors, rear & side, protect you from glare at night, automatic high beam on & off & an unbelievable amount of air bags. The rear seats are heated & so much more. Look up the Subaru Forester Touring to see how much more it offers.
Sales process is a little slow but everything else after that is smooth. What I like the most is the availability tech support- Brennan who navigates on all the electronic buttons and make it easier that reading all the written materials.
A. Exceptionally nice car
by MarkW from Phoenix, Az
January 4, 2019
The Forester is exactly what we were looking for. Reasonably priced, very comfortable, efficient for its size, smooth driving, excellent performing. Upright seating fits a wide range of sizes and is great for tall drivers. Excellent rear seat space. Very, very, good cargo space access. The interior is well laid out. Controls are easy to reach and easy to understand. One more thing, the climate control system is fully up to handling Phoenix summer weather.
Good buying experience, as I was able to negotiate a fair price on a Tacoma in a reasonable amount of time. The dealership itself is very modern and impressive with a good atmosphere and friendly people.
Love my Subaru
by Ivonne from Nashua, NH
January 20, 2019
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.
We knew that the car we were looking for was not available at this dealer, nor at any other dealer nearby. The sales staff did a search and found one in Spokane, WA and had it trucked to Corvallis.
Great car for the value
by Valkyrie from Chapel Hill, NC
January 3, 2019
This car provides one of the best safety feature, eyesight. Driving with it always provides me with the most confidence. The AWD comes with standard configuration of this car also make your icy driving safer.
This was a great experience, which is not always the case when buying a new car! The sales team was honest and helpful. We drove out of the lot with a new Subaru Outback... and felt pleased with the price. Very pleased!
Best car I’ve ever had and I have had four Subaru’
by SubaruForesterFanKayB from Snoqualmie, WA

I love it! And have since I bought it a year ago. I loved my other three prior Subaru’s, but this one is overall my favorite because of all the room.
