This car has it all. test drive one and see for yourself.
Overall a great car. It's a little light on horsepower compared to the Outback, but less expensive and just as capable, if not more so, in the "outback" (i.e off-road). Looks good also, I recommend it highly.
This car has been perfect for my needs. I am able to cram beach gear, camping equipment or even frequent loads from home depot in the large hatch back. The color was cool in 2003, but I am tired of the two tone green paint 8 years later. My super-ru will climb up any hill, trudge through any un-plowed snow covered road, & crawl through mud along side any lifted monster truck. We may make it through tough road conditions, but we are the turtle, not the hare in the race.
Pros: ground clearance
Cons: Poor Gas Mileage!!!I got very poor MPG! Usually avg. 17-19 city, actually rural area where I live. I was told I would get a lot more when buying it.
best vehicle ever for me.
Cons: N/AI buy a car every 2 years and this is my fourth Forester. I am ready to buy my fifth. Great car, holds its value, saftey rating great, the best in the snow, perfect size for me and my dog.
Pros: The sun roof, of course!
Cons: Slow accelerationI love my Subaru Forester. It is very comfortable and is great for hauling kids, groceries, furniture, oversize items from the hardware store and more. The oversize sun roof is really nice, too. I live in northern Canada and it is dark.... I can let in all the available light and this improves everyones mood when you spend your winters living in the dark. The only complaint that I have with the car is that it doesn't have a lot of get-up-an-go. The acceleration isn't what it could be. The vehicle is small enough that it should be able to have the extra power. However, the all wheel drive is a great feature in the northern climate. The car is also great in the extreme cold. It just starts right up and actually defrosts in a reasonable amount of time. Overall, it is a great car and gets great gas mileage!!
