Sales rep Nathan Scott listened to what I wanted in a car, and showed a number of different models and options. This was a major purchase for me, one I had not made for a couple of decades. I felt like I had good advice, without undue pressure. He, manager Albert Palmer, and CFS Dominick D'Aurizio worked with me to get finance terms better than what I thought were possible going in, including reaching out to credit unions that could offer a lower rate than would otherwise be available. I was happy with the service.
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.
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.
BEST customer service ever! Todd Ritter and his team are the best. Treated me and my Mom the best out of multiple dealerships. No pressure and very knowledgeable of product. The other dealerships did not take us seriously because we were women and did not know their product or didn't have a lot of inventory on the lot. I will definitely be referring them and go back when I need to upgrade. :-)
Capable SUV with good MPG

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.
Bought an awesome BMW M3 from Mike at EURO STAR AUTOS SALES. I had an awesome experience from the first phone call to the handshaking of making a deal with me. Mike was very knowledgeable about the inventory they had and I learned a few things about the M3 that I didn't even know about even though I've been a fan for years. Mike, keep up the great work. EURO STAR AUTO SALES!!!

Love this vehicle! This vehicle has met all my expectations. Love subaru's because they are very dependable and great in snow. Love the symmetrical AWD.
Great place to service your car. Subaru fanatics here.
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 have been there twice, once as a walk in and once with an appointment. Both times the service was outstanding, service was completed within the times they quoted. Will return for all future service, and repairs if needed.
My 3rd Subaru and love it!

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.
Great sales, great follow-up, great service.
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.
While there is at least one Subaru dealer closer to me, I continue to go to Maita Subaru because of their great service
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.
Excellent, on time, prompt, clean, excellent, professional,
Love my Subaru

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.
I'm ninety years old and this was my first brand new car, surprising thorough, pleasant experience, the car fun to drive.
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.
I took my car in for an inspection and found the customer service reps to be courteous and professional. They were good listeners and solved my concerns. The service was completed within a reasonable amount of time and my car was clean and ready for me during my pick up. The service reps explained exactly was had been done and politely asked if I had any other concerns (which I didn't. I was very satisfied and recommended Subaru to my friends and family members.

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
No hassle or pressure ,all the way from sales dept. to the service dept..Thank you for taking care of us.
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 bought me my first Subaru almost 20 years ago. It was a Forester. After driving a small sedan, the SUV was quite an experience. I was a skeptic of these types of cars, but after a few weeks I was hooked! I had that Forester for almost 20 years. When it was time for a new car there was no doubt in my mind what I wanted. I did try an Outback but preferred the roominess of the Forester. The sales personnel were fantastic - informative but not pushy. When my daughter told me she needed a new car, I took her straight to Maita Subaru and she was treated wonderfully. She is now also a proud owner of a Subaru Forester!
Great car for the value
by Valkyrie from Chapel Hill, NC

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.
I love my 2018 Forester. I’m only 5’ and the seats are very comfortable. Don’t really like the Navigation - can’t seem to make it work. I have 2 friends who also have a Forester, all of ours are green. Only thing negative is the rear windshield wiper. When I go through the car wash, the portion that doesn’t move, pops off. I’ve lost one and now I have to put painters tape over it to keep it in place.
Example: The gps/map system is not intuitive to easily upgrade maps! Subaru seems unable to inform customers when new maps are available? Using the Subaru app Subaru Toolbox Gen2 is not very user friendly.....a poorly created app period! Connecting to your personal devices through STARLINK is a waste of time and unreliable. Why Subaru uses this poorly designed software and not Apple Car Play, used by most other car manufacturers, is questionable! It would be truly nice to be able to link my IPhone to the Gen2 headunit display but.....no way? Seems the electronics of this car is for Android devices primarily and not Apple friendly!
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.
