    2006 Subaru B9 Tribeca

    Worst Dealership Ever

    Pros: all wheel drive

    Cons: style, lack of ac in back

    Do not like a car that you cannot find parts except for dealership. This includes windshield wipers - wanted to charge me $80 but said they had none. Mechanic I went to got wiper from same dealer. I paid $44.00! This is only 1 of many issues I've had with dealership. Too expensive to maintain.

    2010 Subaru Legacy

    good value, safe, comfortable car

    Pros: Traction control/6cyl engine/AWD/better lumbar support

    Cons: I don't like where the computer control button as been repositioned versus previous models

    I have had several Subarus, so I know what the other rater means about the loudness. Subarus tend to be a little on the loud side and you do hear the road, but this has advantages. Dealerships are individually owned/operated, so this shouldn't reflect on the car. Both dealerships I've used have been as nice and honest as car dealerships get...

    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!!
