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.
Cons: The car is noisy.Great car with good snow handling performance. Solid with a surprisingly sporty feel when you drive it. It has been and still is very reliable.
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!!
Best for least
Pros: Interior space
Cons: No negativesI've never owned a car that has delivered the most satisfaction for the money. Remember, FOR THE MONEY. Was able to purchase in 6/2008 with no $ down and 0 % interest for 2 years. Not 1 problem and minimal maint.
