I worked with Jan from Carvana- she was able to explain to me the process, make sure I was comfortable with where it was at, was able to be reached and kept communication open. The pick up process went smoothly and I was able to sell my car without any glitches.
Very sporty, handles great
by Landry from Haverhill

Meets every need, roomy, drives great in snow, handles better than any suv I've driven. Look, design, USB portals, road side assistance, bluetooth, all great features
From start to finish, the team that helped me was incredible. They were so professional, knowledgeable, and personable. They really made me feel like I was the only customer there! I???m brand new to the whole Subaru brand, and they made sure that all of my questions and concerns were addressed. I???m now in love with my Forester! Thank you so much to Josh, Blake, and Vinny who helped with the entire process!
Most Innovated Car I have Ever Owned
by ottob from Rocky Point, New York

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.
I needed a new vehicle quickly and had wanted an Outback for quite some time. Looking at other vehicles solidified my desire for a newer model. I called and talked to Caleb Davis to set up a time to come look at vehicles and I had pretty much already found the one I wanted online. I drove from Tupelo, MS on a Wednesday evening with my wife and two young children arriving less than an hour before close. I have very little time and it was my only opportunity to visit the dealership in Memphis. I had let them know about my previous nightmare worthy experiences with car dealers and I must say Caleb and Blake were two very patient guys who took the time to listen and work with me on exactly what I needed to make the purchase. Caleb was very kind and explained many of the newer Outback features and took the time to listen and answer all of my questions. He is very straight forward, which is always a plus. Blake was great to work with and made the financing process as smooth as it should be when spending a significant amount of money. I highly recommend visiting Jim Keras Subaru for your purchase. I'll write an updated review after my first experiences visiting the service department and working out any potential issues that may arise with the vehicle.
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....
I had a great experience. They met all my needs and beyond, along with explaining everything I asked about. Great personal touch, let me get comfortable with the process, no rushing, etc.
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.
Excellent experience in the used car buying process. I have bought 5 cars from city auto and will always go to them first for all my car buying needs.
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.
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.
We had an outstanding experience with Brian Bates and the Jim Keras Subaru team! We stopped by to browse on a Sunday morning and despite the dealership being closed, Brian took time to meet with us and was a Subaru guru! He gave us a lot of great advice to help us decide on which Subaru was the best option for us and went above and beyond over the next week to make sure we had everything we needed before we relocated across the country in a few days. Highly recommend Brian and the team!!
My 3rd Subaru and love it!
by Jane18 from DE
January 27, 2019
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.
Car buying for a single female can be overwhelming. Not at Keras. My team was the bombdiggity. Chris Hitching was my salesman. He made sure I met everyone I would deal with, and understood every aspect of the process. This is my second Subaru but the first time I ever dealt with Jim Keras dealership. I went in because my headlight was out and I suspected the deal I made on the first Subaru was not as good as it could have been. These guys made sure to get this corrected and I left with a new Outback and a much better deal than I could have imagined. I am still in shock at having had such a wonderful experience. The customer care here is awesome. Subaru school with Bill Blake has been amazing as I had no idea my Outback could do so much. Its a fact here that outstanding customer service does not end once the deal is sealed. Subaru has the highest safety rating and Jim Keras Subaru matches this standard with their customer service. I am so happy I tell everybody this will be their last stop if they are looking for quality service from a car and a Dealership. Love my car and Jim Keras Subaru. Never ending gratitude for this experience.
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.
After visiting several of the typical dealerships I walked away confused and Unsatisfied. After visiting Carvana.com I picked out a vehicle to my liking and price point fill out the paperwork got approval I had my new vehicle delivered to my front door. Most typical dealerships you spend half a day walking away with an overpriced vehicle in an overpriced interest-rate. Carvana has made it an enjoyable experience and it can be done from the luxury of your Home. Thanks Carvana.
Hey I just got it home and I’m being optimistic

This was a pre-owned vehicle used lightly as a loaner. It looks, runs and even smells like new. And we paid a great price, no BS
My experience with carvana was and still is very good. I wanted to sell my can a few months ago and Madison was super nice. Undirtunately I had to cancel the sell bc of personal reasons. Now I???m again in the process of selling and Madison is super patient with me and so nice!
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.
It was nice to get beyond the dickering that one is always subjected to from car salespeople. Buying from the comfort of home was nice.
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.
My husband and I had a great experience when we purchased our 2017 Outback. Unfortunately, we didn't have such a great experience when buying a 2011 Forester. We purchased this used car when it was still cold outside. Once it warmed up, we turned on the ac, only to find the car blowing warm air. So we scheduled an oil change for the outback and a maintenence check for the ac on the forester (extended warranty). Outback was taken care of, however, we were told we needed to pay $200 for the forester because they said the ac was working when we purchased it. When my husband asked about this, the staff, instead of taking the high road and admitting they probably overlooked the ac, stood by their claim that it happened after we drove the vehicle home. This is a second car. It's barely been driven. And my husband and I aren't those people trying to get something for nothing. We just want others to do the right thing. It's only fair. Long story short, we paid the money because we do live in the south. This is costing us well over the 200 dollars as we live over an hour away and we will be making 4 trips (and a lot of gas money to boot) to get what they should have checked and fixed before selling the car. I'm not one to use a public forum like this to vent, but I really feel abused by this situation ( and I am a tough old cookie). Oh, and the offer to return the 200 when we go back to buy our next Suburu isn't going to happen. There are other places to purchase Suburu's.
Suabru can't go wrong
by Jitendra from Monmouth Junction
January 12, 2019
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.
Good Job --beat the xxxx out of Jonesboro Dealer I was going to. Service manager would not talk to you ---he would take a phone number and call you if he had time----Had an IQ of -2 if that.
Thanks again for the good service
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.
