Good All-Purpose Car
by Alex from Brooklyn, NY

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.
We purchased a used car as is from Phil Meador Subaru through John Nemire. It was for our daughter who is disabled and needed a car that she could not afford. Two weeks after we bought it the transmission revealed a problem. John went to bat for us and the Sales Manager agreed to split the bill with us even though he did not have to do so. It was a very generous gesture that was much appreciated. We will be back when we need another car.
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.
Phil Meador Subaru dealership was a fantastic experience. My husband and I were looking for a newer car to replace my old one. They gave a fair trade value for my car, as well as going through all the options for purchasing a vehicle and financing options. Scott helped us greatly in the details, as this was my first car purchase, and was very helpful and energetic. We went through picking the right color and features and had the Crosstrek shipped to the dealership. I highly recommend this dealership as it was an amazing experience and hassle free.
Suabru can't go wrong

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.
I worked with Eric in getting my Subaru at Phil Meador Subaru. Eric was extremely helpful. We test drove a variety of cars and he was very knowledgeable about all of them. Most importantly, I felt that he was concerned about helping me to gather the information necessary for me to make a decision, rather than just producing a sale. I plan to have the Subaru I bought for a long time, but when it's time to buy again, I won't go anywhere else.
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.
Eric woodland, sold me a 2018 subaru outback. He was very priffesional, kind, caring and took into account what I was asking for. I would buy a car from, Eric woodland any day. Eric taught me how everthing worked in the car, when to change the oil, when to get maintenance. How the computer worked with my phone, took pictures, and called me several times to check up on me xxx the car. can't say enough. Great guy.
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
We bought a 2018 Legacy with the R6 engine from John Nemire a few weeks ago. John was very good to work with and did his best to explain all of the features of the new Legacy, and there are a LOT of features. This car is the epitome of luxury as far as we are concerned. The R6 engine has plenty of power and with the CV transmission is smooth as glass. The leather stitching is perfect and the controls are nicely laid out and easy to use. The radio and phone are all controlled with voice commands for hands free operation. Go see John at Phil Meador Subaru and get into a Legacy of your own.
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.
Jeanette (I hope I am spelling that correctly) in service is amazing. I had an issue with my car, twice now, and I have been back to her and your team of technicians for both times when another shop spent hours or days trying to fix it and they were able to diagnose and fix my issues within an hour. They are fantastic and deserve as much praise as possible. Thank you. You make a bad situation of repair a car, more pleasant and easy on the customer which is more than appreciated. Although when looking for my car through this dealer I did find this car elsewhere but I have made several purchases through the service department and will continue to do so for a very long 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.
Courteous Salespeople answered all of our questions. Did not hound us like most dealerships. Allowed us our own time to look and to discuss options.
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 love this car. Powerful engine, can really feel the juice when you accelerate. Lots of room in the trunk and the seats are easy to fold down for extra space. The bluetooth works perfectly and the sound system is great. Nice clean and easy to navigate hood. It's fun to drive and we feel safe doing it!
Subaru staff really cares & values me. I think Jennette in the Service area where you get you car seviced is the BEST!!! She is so knowledgeable! Subaru really does care about me! I love my 2012 Subaru Forester!!! And it was great to have a short visit with my car salseman, Matt! For my next Subaru - I will be back calling on him.
Good value for the money I paid, rides nice.

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.
