    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.

    2010 Subaru Forester

    Car Reviews

    Pros: The sun roof, of course!

    Cons: Slow acceleration

    I 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!!

    2009 Subaru Forester

    Best for least

    Pros: Interior space

    Cons: No negatives

    I'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.
